so it'* basically attaching a filter at the end of the stock hose, with the stock front assembly screwing into it'* original position? or is it actually using a rice pipe... the last diagram still says hose.

That'* essentially what most of us have been building for the last 3 years or so, with our own personal touches.

I'm awaiting more people to put the filter over at the fender area and block off a large area from say the strut tower (inner part by engine) straight forward to the radiator support.

SilverBullet did it a LONG time ago, and i believe he used 4" pipe?

He has no pipe. He'* got a filter attached directly to the TB. Straight shot.

Some 92-99'* have walled it off as well.

Thanks guys...I said I'd like to see MORE do it. I feel it could be a better solution than the CAI that many are running.

i saw it the other night on BC, forget who it was, and which forum it was..

but he cut the left side of the stock front half out and put a piece of plex in between the pcm or whatever was there, and the side of thefront to prevent hot air from getting in .. he used a k&n filter, and some tubing like the intense FWI kit has in it. . but yeah, it was the stock front half, no rice pipe

Don't use the factory accordian tube. It prevents laminar flow and hurts the overall velocity of the incoming air. You want smooth walls, no joints.
