Looks impressive, but at the risk of being ignorant, what is FWI? A type of water injection? Just a quess.

Fender Well Intake.
You pull cool air out of your inner fender, very clean area in a 2k+ bonne

What is holding your computer down?
You don't want it bouncing around.
Too bad you couldn't ditch that stock accordian flex connector.

get rid of the stock accordian connector (a 4" to 3" rubber hose reducer will work nicely). The key is smooth, laminar airflow. Other than that, AWESOME! Make sure you stay out of standing water.

Yes, it'* Intense tubing. My computer is sitting in the bottom part of a computer tray that I had purchased for my GTP. I just can't use the top part of the tray because of clearance issues. It seems to be fine in there though. I'm so not concerned about the accordian tube thing. I'm not concerned about 1/100th of a Horsepower at this point. I went through all that stuff with the GTP......MAF screen in, MAF screen out.....CAI vs FWI.....and on and on.....anyway, the filter sits inside the fender kind of in front of the drivers side tire.

Just wondering how it sounds compared to the stock setup? Also where did you buy the Intense Tubing from.

Thanks
