Craig9080, don't forget, you'll have to reset your windows for auto up and down if you disconnect the battery.
Doug, you may be on to something. I am going without the prefilter for now as the $10 setup fee for something that they have already made 2 of is not the right thing in my mind, but i could probably work that down/off when I call.

On another note, during an extended period of inactivity at work I have developed the stunning simulation of what I plan todo below. The holes will be a medium size and alternate and an off-set linearly parallel manner to produce optimum airflow with decreased wind resistence


I'm board at work so i played around in paint to make a crappy diagram with more holes.

I think this would work well. By not drilling the whole thing I am decreasing air that I THINK may not make it to the intake at speed and thus only adds friction and not intake pressure.
