I hear it exists.... I just don't know where to find it!
Where could I possibly get a Cold Air Intake system for a 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer ES, Automatic transmission?

Is there anything different about the system that is meant for automatics than for manual trannies? Perhaps engine placement?

Any insight is much appreciated!

from wat i understand u can do it i have a auto... but wat im gunna do is put it in the airbox...so yeah... but another way to do it is take the air box out and wip it on the MAF sensor and run some sort of tube up to the pod and down to a opening in the bumper...

try it ive seen it done many times...

its probably wat im gunna do aswell...

So I guess the way to go would be to get some sort of universal kit.

Know of any good brands with awesome performance?

or another possibility, which might be cheaper, is to get a short ram air intake which basically does the same thing as the cold air...performace wise, the power gain wont be any different.

Yes, the SRI is cheaper and easier to install than the CAI. The performance gain of the CAI is 1-2 hp (at best) more than the SRI.

I have the K&N FIPK. Have had no problems with it and you can get it in several colors. Very good quality. I just cleaned the air filter last night (75,000 miles later).
