Ok. I would have to agree that the numbers arent as high as C&L would like us to think. The deal with the C&L is that it minimizes the bends while keeping the filter shielded from the engine bay (pretty decently I suppose). I thought you were talking about an AFM power pipe that puts the MAF in the fenderwell, the C&L is called a TrueFlow inlet pipe.

I doubt that a C&L setup will take 2 tenths off by itself...that is asking a lot.

well i think im losing a tenth by having an open filter sucking 50-60* hotter air then with the heat shield

well with the shield you will be doing a better job at keeping the air cool...certainly. I just dont know about two tenths off your ET. Best way to know is to go to the track and then let us know. I would be surprised at two tenths...one tenth is more reasonable...and not a bad gain for an MAF. You might get it but Im just skeptical. Maybe if you were running some kind of SC.

With the C&L mass air meter and trueflow inlet pipe, you should drop your et by 1 - 1.5 tenths; although you might get 2. The typical gain is a peak of 15-18 at the wheels and 12-14 over most of the RPM range. Try it and see.

Well I bought the 80mm setup with the trueflow inlet pipe for my 97. I hope I can get 2/3rds of that, but I wont hold my breath.
