Good then. Mine actually comes in behind the filter (air making a 180 bend, about 6 inches below the actual intake of the Steeda SRI). I was just suprised by the spikes. I small deflector (air spreader) cured it.

Agree! Conservative changes are generally best when there visible (Note: does not apply to me. I have no taste!). I am going to have to hunt down some rubber pipe now. That just makes so much sense!

P.S. Nice bracket work there!
Steeda SRI w/CAI intake. Trubendz SS 2.5" . FR Susp/Struts. Tune by Tom (FocusPower). Rota Grids. SAP rear spoiler. Custom front air dam, rocker panel bits and Rear valance.
