I got mine from autobarn, its a VL commonwhore adaptor.

Designed to fit the RB30E and the CA20E RWD configs (although it fits all CA20E's).  It has a square inlet area.

The inlet on my CA20E is perfectly round (not square like the VL's or R31's), so I had to cut away the excess metal to eliminate that extra resistance.

Im gonna continue this thread. The r31 has a VERY bad inlet piping from the filter. Both the ca20e and rb30e have very restrictive piping stock.

i have done the full kit on my r31 skyline pod and cai piping done professioanlly and on the dyno i recieved a very nice 8rwkws not to mention a smoother power curve over the entire rev range

you shouldn't need to drill holes in the adaptor if you bought the correct one in the first place.

how can i heat shield it..

Get one of your cuz's to sit in the engine bay and put his hands around the pod on the engine side of the filter. If he blows into it while doing this it will be like forced induction and you will waste everything on the road.
First a Silver TRX, then a White TRX...whats next? Game Boy-Clear style TRX?

My first partition consisted of a cardboard cutout cut to follow the enginebay bits to block engine bay radiation and hot air from being drawn into filter. It was covered in duct tape and insulation tape. After moving to metal it made no difference. Worked well. Simple and takes 5 minutes. You can laugh , or can benefit if you cannot be bothered full on CAI just yet.
