If this car is the 2 door i recommend you remove the plastic piece to the right of the brake duct vent. It will send air right into the filter. Unless it was part of the installation?

Thank you, I did remove... it is suggested to do so unless you want additional guard from rain etc.

Very nice install JP. So in the end the only modifications were to add a 45 degree elbow and flip the BOV around? Nice job.... keep us posted on how it performs.

yes... flip the BOV... actually flip the pipe coming from the rubber 90 opposite of original intended install and then add the 45 at the botom before the filter.

I will post some numbers once I dyno.

Schneid,
You make me want to kick you in the nuts man. Let me list the reasons...

1) We get you have a similar CAI intake so don't bash this one. You being a prick has just sold me on what intake I want...his.

2) You point out a "flaw" in the same design that you accused MSDS of stealing from you!

3) You don't use cool emotes like the one above.
