I'd love to hear more about your engine. Which CAI system are you using? Does using it preclude purchasing the finishing kit, or can you just order part of that kit? I'm just starting an RV-10 build and wasn't aware of this mod.

Give Rhonda at Barrett Precision Engines a call. She’s pretty good at helping you understand all the options, as well as what works and what doesn’t.

on the finishing or firewall forward kit (or any kit for that matter), you can delete whatever you'd like.
For instance, I just received my firewall forward kit and removed all the hoses,
alternator, etc.. because I'm sourcing those things elsewhere. Van's will give you a credit for the removed items.
