i dont think he can have one. It looks the same as my car and i took out my computer box and strapped the computer down with zip ties. There really isn't a whole in the fenderwell like there is on regals or grand prix'*.

Do you have one???
If so, what year is your car?

I know there is nowhere to put one on mine so i did the same thing only i have a rubber elbow that turns 90* smoothly instead of metal or whatever that is.

now you just need to start building a box for it. I started to build mine with Lexan but it takes forever. I want it to look pretty to

All you do is move the EVAP canister up right behind your driver'* side headlight and run the FWI tube down through that hole. Take your PCM out of the box and secure it to the side of the inner fender in the engine bay. I've got one on my '99 and it works great.

Either way, you need to build a heat shield box to prevent sucking in super hot engine bay air.

intake diameter is a little overkill, but it should work OK once you get a heatshield on there.

I would seriously reconsider the routing of your power cable.

took the words right out of my mouth there should be a factory whole in the firewall on the passanger side or just run it under the car alot easier and then come up either in the tailights or some where else
less hassle

x2. Where you have it right now, it'* exposed to a ton of radiant heat from the crossover pipe. If it gets hot enough, it'* going to melt the insulation and then you're SOL...


BTW, I like the intake, the welds look very even, good quality. But these guys are right, you're still sucking in hot air, and these motors are very sensitive to intake heat.
Use card board to mock up a box that shields it from the engine bay as completely as possible, then use that as a template to cut your shield from plexi, or some sort of insulating material. I would also consider wrapping the pipe in insulating material to keep the radiant heat from the crossover out.
