Actually there is a great deal you can screw up with a CAI. If the MAF housing is off even the slightest bit (sensor depth or angle) you could have all sorts of performance issues.

And don't get caught up in the metal vs plastic debate. IATs with metal tubes aren't significantly higher than with plastic tubes.
