I'm using a BPP Vortex. Great results!! If I had to do it over, however, I would go with Jakes intake set up. It relieves my fears of the water ingestion worries.

I will put Vortex on my next car just as this one has, you would have to ride through well over a foot of water to ever have a chance of sucking water into the engine of a car with a Vortex on it, and it's the most hp for the $ at this time. JMO

As I recall, you said you held it in place with some kind of tie down.

Could you not just cut out a large section of the original cover to eliminate the restrictiveness, and then have a pretty solid bracket to keep it in place? How about building some kind of ram air collection device? I have had mine in winter storage for over 3 months now, so I can't remember what the air cleaner assembly looks like.

Hi Dave & All!
This is Jake from Corvette Concepts. In 1997 I built what I believe was the first Ram Air Induction System on a C5 Corvette.
After 6 changes in Ram Air boxes, I belive we offer the finest cold air system available. Our present system consists of a cast acrylic box 3/16" thick in your choice of glossy red, glossy black, or custom painted colors, over an American made K&N Filtercharger. Our system includes a lower air scoop which is open in the rear to allow air to feed into the air filter and allow water to flow harmlessly out the back through the radiator. We know of no other system on the market that can make this claim. Our system comes with a solid 1/4" plexiglass template which is screwed into positon to allow accurate cutting of the hole for the air scoop rather than a thin cardboard sheet. When removed the template leaves pre-threaded holes to install the air scoop. Our easy access air box removes by simply removing two phillips screws, allowing total access to the filter in under a minute. There is no need to remove the entire assembly to exmaine the air filter. We believe that this system is not only the easiest to install and maintain, but the most solid and safest for your C5. Our guarantee is simple...if you don't feel that this is the easiest install and the finest Ram Air Induction System on the market at any price,we will refund every cent of your purchase price.

For the money, either the BPP Vortex if cold air is an option or the Donaldson unit if you do not want to cut the shroud. The Donaldson can be converted later into a cold air system if you desire. I have sold and installed almost every air intake kit available for the C5 and these two are best for the money. I personally run the cold air Donaldson. I like it for its stock fit.
If money is not an issue, the Halltech is a nice kit.
