Damn i did good on that, how well does it line up with the round opening n the rad support that the original air box stuck through?

have you tryed yet to get any numbers on how much cooler the intake air is with it on?
Too bad there isn't enough room to connect a duct thru the fender well opening.
This set up is good because of my cool box. It keeps the intake air exactly the same as outside air.

Aero effects don't come into play for us at 100mph on a dragstrip. It'* purely cosmetic.

I redid my intake. Took a flexable dryer hose, hooked it up to the intake, pulled the charcoal canister out, ran the hose down that hole, pulled the left foglight out and jimmied the hose to the foglight hole. Voila! Instant ram air

Nothing at all to be ashamed of. Perfectly good idea.
Most of us don't do that simply because we like our Fog Lights.

LMFAO! Yea, my left fog light was busted too. So, what the hell, I took it out.

Filter? What filter? Don't need no stinkin filter.

Nah, didn't have a means to install a filter at the time. I only had it installed for a day. Took it around the block couple times to see if I could notice anything in the butt dyno. Couldn't really tell. So figuring I had no filter in place, decided to put it back to stock for the time being. Thinking about fabricating a working hood scoop for ram air. Not too worried about the hood considering how dinged up it is from backing my KW into it.
