And there is the ability to turn a AEM CAI intake for the SR20 into a CAI for the QG18, search around it's there.

Maybe one of the members that has done this can give a detailed step by step process w/ pics?

Yup, I emailed them earlier this summer about it. They told me they still had a few left and could be bought for regular price (Around 235 I think.)

I didn't feel like it was worth it at the time.
