Yeah, it is a tight fit in there with what I think is part of the hood latch mechanism and isn't the horn in there too? But once you get the fender well lining back on you'll never know how it'* squeezed in there.

yep, 2 horns and some other stuff. Just enough room for that huge filter. Not going to be fun every time I have to clean it.

Hey thanks! I have been considering getting this and just wondered how it all fit together.

pretty easy to install once you realize where all the parts go. The instructions were ok but could be better. I'll make a photo diagram to show it in pieces. and how it goes together. The cell phone pics they use aren't that great.
