So I got antsy and mocked up the install yesterday and installed today. The low end torque is the most noticeable improvement. Sound is perfect, noticeable and complimentay with the lunchbox delete. I used aluminum screen door material as a preventive measure along with the Outerwear pre-filter wrapping a K&N filter. It took me 2 hours to complete.

Austin to Corpus and back again. On the way down 3 in the car with gear, AC on at ~75 MP average was 39.1 MPG. Around Corpus got 31 - 33 MPG average. Coming home today got a best 45.3 MPG. All driving was with AC on. 220 miles on 4.85 gallons. This is a 5-8 MPG bump in highway MPG. Mixed driving shows 2-3 MPG bump. Tomorrow I'm going to fashion an aluminum catch utilizing all the area the plastic has to offer. Pics when done.

My concern is that there wouldn't be enough room in the bay at the end of the filter housing for mounting and routing the tubing.

I think the Weapon R intake has a similar system and people have been unable to use it because of the lack of room.

Just finished up. The geometries were a challenge. Going for a test drive now and will put up pics later on.

I was puttering around in the basement today and came across this and thought it could work as a scoop for the Newmission Mod-especially since I have a piece of 2-1/2" flexible vacuum tubing that will slip right onto it.
ShopVac "Gulper" nozzle--gotta believe it will flow well!
