Haven't driven the car with the mod yet but will update. Still trying to figure out how to cover up the inlet with a custom or OEM grille. See pictures and let me know what you think guys.

First clearance test

Final fit

Ram Air Inlet
I was looking at my car today, with your mod in mind.

I don't have the room in front of my airbox like you do. Can't barely fit my hand in there....

Then it dawned on me you don't have HID lamps. I guess the housing protrudes into the engine compartment much further than yours. The only way I can see a 3" duct going into my airbox is a la Dinan's bottom adapter.
