You may want to drill a new hole to relocate the Hood sensor.. and you can run it straight down to just above the fog light on SE'* ( there'* a nice opening there) on SSEIs with fog lights near the center. if you look underneath it.. there'* 3 opening ( divided by the bottom fins for the foglights ) and have it ducted to one of the opening on the side closest to the driver side.

Default air duct

I made a custom intake for my car with air duct, i removed the foglamps and used the holes there to bolt the air duct to, then ran both pipes to the boxand had them connect just over the drivers side bumper mount. and remove the snorkle. thats it, the power gain was noticable, if you are running a sc then it is kinda usless, since the sc omly takes so much air at a time, but it still gives it colder air.

Yeah I'd like to see pics of that too since I've been constantly thinking of how to do it. I also want it to look good and not ghetto, even though my Bonne is technically ghetto green & gold.

HAHA... k.. maybe wrong terminology used.. but it'* located behind the driver side headlights on the frame.. it'* the switch that basically dings the panel inside if the hood is adjar and not close properly
