Wow. Nice and clean.
What hole did you do through? It looks like it'* in front of the charcoal canister.

x2, and where you got that pipe, is it a rice pipe with a piece of straight pipe added?

Looks good Where'd you get the parts for that & which filter do you have on there? I want to get rid of my gutted airbox when the weather warms up some.

Looks like two rices...one cut and one straight.

Nice job.. I'm on the "lets see the filter" wagon."

Yes, the hole is in front of the charcoal canister. I had to
cut a 4"wide hole about 3"* below/ out from and above the crease.
The filter is a K&N RX-4750 cone filter which was recommended
by the guru'* here. I used two rice pipes 1 I bought and 1 donated
by a friend who had 1 sittin in his garage. At first I was going to
do the rice pipe w/ a heat shield, but after the donation I came
up w/ this idea. One rice pipe is intact and the other i had to cut
about 6"* off using the end w/ the 45* bend. I wanted to make
sure the filter was behind/below the head light and tucked above
the splash guard to try to prevent water saturation as much as
possible . The rice pipe ends up coming out behind the head light
w/ the 45* angle pointing down and towards the front driverside corner.
IAT extender used...

I will get some pics of the filter location and hole location and post this weekend...

Nice install! May I ask how you secured the PCM down at that angle? Looks like an effective way to get it out of way.
