I did this mod a few weeks after getting the car it reapply does make a difference. I am going to remove the front grill pieces and replace them with mesh cause all they do is pop off. The build an intake into the front bumper. Also the part where the front emblem is removable. I'll post pics as soon as I am done

I removed the cover today. I'll probably be putting it back on. It feels like from 4,000 rpms and up lost it's torque. I can't believe how restrictive the system is. Quite the small inlet sucking the air in.

I am modifying the front grill into either a ram air through where the front emblem is or into a cold air through the front driverside grill. I am DESigning a mesh grill for all 4 pieces anyways. :)
