It is a 3" hole, I just used what I had in the garage. I was not too worried with having a Huge hole just a way to get cooler air in. I am going to be replacing the top half with an AFE intake soon anyway.

Yeh that is still a great little setup looks awesome great job! You should get a diablosport predator or and intune and see if your Intake Air Temperatures dropped over stock...

^ Fantastic idea, I'm very interested in this as well. My aFe intake has given my great gains over stock, but I think its sucking in lots of hot air, so I'd like to do this mod. In fact, of all my mods (listed in my signature), I really believe my aFe intake has given me the biggest gain, even more so than my $1,600 longtubes
