Talking custom 3.7 cold air intake

Since the forum law states I am not allowed to promote my company or products, I will keep it personal. (I) am designing a CAI for the 3.7L commander. It has 3" polished aluminum tubing, washable filter and a powder coated intake box to seperate the filter compartment from the engine bay. I'm expecting this to look and perform better than the K&N, and cost less!
Does anyone have any other input or suggestions? I will post some pictures as it all comes together.

Dyno

There will only be a dyno run if there happens to be a large demand for this item. I will post milage increases, and air inlet temperature data compared to engine compartment temperature. Next week I should have some pictures.
Thanks!
Ken

Why would I want more power and better fuel mileage?

Just kidding. Waiting with baited breath. Maybe I should stop eating worms.

good luck on any decent gains...

I haven't seen the V6 in a while if its anything like the V8 as far as the MAF and Throttle body placement be concerned in avoiding the protruding ac bolts and other things in the way from running a smooth tube...(see my pics for what I mean). But Good Luck!
