i was thinking about that on the drive home today

"hmmm....i want more mpg, but this whine and throttle response is just too good"

i did notice that the hole in front of the airbox in the radiator support isn't very big

i just made the forum titled how to make a real cold air using your stock airbox and after explaining everything i realized you did the exact same thing as me and posted pictures, i wasnt trying to copy off of you but i think everyone should do it, also did you use the stock filte, you should use a short ram and cone filter, they flow better than the stock accordian and square filter


also check out me and insane lss'* supercharged six symbol http://s62.photobucket.com/albums/h9...t=000_0149.jpg

I don't think so.. Because then you are restricting the air filtration to only that 4 inches of space.
I'm just looking at the two and thinking about flow... without the rear tranistion it looks like it would flow like crap. There is still space behind the filter to the transition piece.
