do you have pics of it? I might need to incorporate it into my design: Here is what I have planned, though 1 ft by 1.5 feet will require a longer pipe than I originally planned, i will probably take a 2 foot 90 degree bend and a 1 ft straight pipe and cut as needed.

Yeah, the reason i am selling it is so i could have a little cash in my pocket.

I love the mod. It is still on my car. If no one purchases it then i will keep it on.

I would go back to stock. I will not be purchasing an aftermarket intake.

wouldnt you need a new stock airbox? Have you seen better mpg or performance with the mod?

Now that my engine is broken in I'm thinking of blocking the hole on the Newmission air intake to see if mileage goes up. I'll still have the K&N on. Not interested in keeping that way, just curious if it would make a difference.

I have 2 air boxes. One with the hole and one without.

I have had it on for a few months. There has been a consistent gain of a little over 1 mpg. But to be honest, once it was on, I started driving a little more aggressively because the intake gives a nice growl.

Here's my newmission mod airbox.

I just trimmed the hose down to the contours of the bottom of the box, then sealed it with some Loctite instant gasket maker in the easy pressurized dispenser.


Here is my K&N showing where the hose blows onto the filter. This mod definitely looks like it gets the air into the box!


Here is my lower grill. I just left the block plate out. I may get some window screen mesh and attach it around the tube inlet.


Next, I WILL be buying one of the outerwear covers.

Thanks for the idea behind this newmission!!! Cheap and easy, and I'm certain it works.
