Default How Strong is 3M Tape - CAI

this ebay web ad did not mention 3M tape - but others do.
I cannot see 3M tape holding this - Anyone with experience with it(?):

spoke in gross generalization.
but it could be part of that system - just not closed - IMHO

i had meant for it to be functional - not the cosmetic stuff that is so oftened attired

you can always find other ways to attach it if you want it functional. screws, heavy duty adhesives, etc.

first, u'll need to cut a hole in ur hood for it to work. second, u prolly wont notice a power difference. third, will look bad IMO. a "normal" CAI will do just fine...

Personally, I'd buy a piece of sheet metal and try to fab it myself before I spent $50 on something like that. Of course, that is *if* I were to actually want something like that.

someone would have the "real" ram air - not the simulated type that one gets with these new CAI's
