Do you want performance or you want it to "look good?" I mean, would you spend more time driving the car or with it sitting somewhere with the hood open? If you get a cold air intake, get one that goes into the fender. I debated over just putting a cone at the end of my arm to save money, but people made the case that it would not improve performance as much as a fenderwall one would.

im going to be driving it alot and want something that looks good but most of all performs. i think it would be good to get the fender well type but do i have to cut a bigger hole in the fender? Mine already has a stock hole but it seems small.

The one my car has has a rubber pipe that connects to the manifold and its got like a 5" wide and 7" long filter. Its looks very very nice and it doesn't heat up so I would suggest buying one thats made out of rubber rather than out made out of any metalic material. Just hit it with armoral for vynal, rubber and plastic and it'll make it look nice and shiny =)

i guess i can just use my stock rubber tube and take the air box off and put a filter in place of that. But how does it hold up without flopping everywhere?

I thought you would need to cut out an opening too, and actually I am thinking about it, but you can do it without. You attach the arm and everything first into the fender through that normal hole, then from underneath the car you attach the filter on the exposed end of the arm, it's pretty easy, takes like 20 minutes or less.
