If you want a really nice looking one, I think MAC makes a kit for the 3.8.

To remove the air silincer; open the air box, remove filter, undo the bolts on the bottom, pull box out and now remove the slincer. Jack passenger side up remove wheel and fender shroud , silincer will not just pull out.

No need to jack the car up, jsut pull the plastic liner loose(take out the screws) and pull the airsilencer out.

Basicially, losen the clamps on the intake tube at the Throttle body, then at the MAF, then the one on the airbox/MAF connection. then pull out the PCV tube that goes into the intake tube. Next unbolt the 3 nuts that hold the airbox in place. and vola, its out. As far as installation of the CAI, its pretty much self explanitory, but the CAI should have instructions on how to install it, since there are different setups, I cant possibly tell you how to route the pipes, and such.
