Appreciate it man. They do look pretty good. I might have to invest down the line.

I've been reading this thread and I will be doing this mod come spring. One thought though... I saw something on ebay that might make your life easier than drilling holes on that triangle grille to allow forced air in and add a nicer look on your bumper.

I bought a funnel and some pool hose from Lowes and made a version of this intake. The main difference is that since I have an aftermarket intake, I just ran the flexible hose right up to the pod filter.

Results? While cruising temps remained steady where they were before the modification, WOT runs were a whopping 40+ degrees less than it was without the mod. The intake temps before were peaking at 122. After the mods, it never topped 80 (for reference, today was 70 ambient). So, while it didn't do much for steady state, it certainly reduced heat recirculation in the air intake.

Can you post some pics to show what you did? I'm interested to see how you did it.

Andycrossts Is there a trick to getting the pipe in? I'm having trouble getting my gates hose in.
