I could have put it on but it wouldnt have closed all the way on that side, maybe if i cut some off the top box to make a hole for it to fit through. It is close to fitting but not quite.
Considering that that sell it as an open design as is the fswerks and k&n I am not too worried about problems, but I do plan on trying to make some sort of lid and heat shield. Probably something like the fswerks heat shield closer to the engine and another aluminum or fiberglass/cf piece as the actual lid that seals it closed.
I am not done with it, I just did what i could with the time I had available last weekend. So this will be an ongoing project.
