If you guys have ever noticed, the stock intake draws air from the front lower grill. There is a duct there, so it would be smart to use Y type tubing that leads there to one of those filters where the front of it is open for tubing and the rest looks like a normal filter(pepboys has these) and putting one of those mesh screens on it that prevents hydrolocking. So you have a filter drawing really cold air and then the stealth filter thats boxed in drawing in secondary air so its like having two places where you get cold air from making alot more air flow. What do you guys think?

Also with any filter install, make sure to unhook the battery negative terminal to reset your ECU so that the car goes into emissions learning mode and the sputtering doesn't happen.
