Well guess there's no since in keeping everybody guessing anymore. You guys are good. Here are the test of the pics.

Had to cut some braces out here.

I am about ready to lay fiber glass on this. Them I will remove the cardboard and tape.




It will mount in the same location as the valence did before. I have some automotive air ducting I will run from this to the air box with and adapter. For a true cold air intake. I am probably going to just run the drop in K&N until I get the funds for the AFE intake.
You guys don't think this is over kill do you. Lol

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 :SHOCKED:
