A manifold is huge and wont do **** for your computer.

Airbox is also very large, and you aren't flowing enough for it.

Use a throttle body with the butterfly stuck open. Pair that with a super high CFM fan and that'll be cool.

What are you talking about...you could mod the top of the case to be the manifold, if it's the right size. They aren't HUGE...LOL...

this is all pretty pointless. doesn't really matter what you do your temps wont really drop unless your exhaust is just as good, even then this is very trivial to partake in.

If it is a cold air intake and it goes outside the case it would be drawing in cold fresh air from the outside and would work better than a HSF in a hot case.

EDIT it is a CAI. Go for it it will look sweet
