Yea I did that. I pulled the tire and plastic off, I got the filter up there, but I can't get it to nest against where the hole is for the pipe to come threw. I didn't get the whole cold air kit, just the warm air kit. I got a cold air kit piece from another car and to get it to work, the filter has to be able to get within 1/2 inch of the hole. The base is too big to nest up. So thats where I'm stuck at right now. But it sure sounds great! I can actually hear it sucking under load and when you stomp on it. Will it be louder under the hood or in the fender area?
