We are all used to seeing this routing (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150076807610) for sale on eBay.

However, the other day I ran across another design that had a longer intake tube and looked to place the filter pointing down in the fender. Of course, the eBay auction is gone so I can't post a link, but I did find this one (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200064042351) that looks similiar. And before it is asked, yes they advertised it for use on a GC SRT-8.

I'll keep looking for it to see if they put it back up. Filter in fender is better than filter in box underhood. :cool:

Is this the one you were talking about:

Edit - looks to me like this is the one we all have already seen.

Nope, that's the current design (maybe old design)

Never trust Ebay pictures, only go by part number. I believe what Barho posted has a picture of the Liberty CAI, not the GC.

Exactly, I'm guessing they used a genaric pic, good chance it was the 5.7 one you posted because the seller doesn't know there's a difference. Volant makes one now too.

Found it & it looks like a mistake:

What prevents this routing from being used?

The dealer can install the intake right?
