If you look in the bottom of the air box tray there are two drain holes towards the front.

Thanks for the review and pics, the CAI looks nice. However, I can't really justify the price for any of the CAIs out now compared to their performance increase over a K&N drop in. Maybe if your dyno numbers look really good :)

Creative, how would you describe the sound compared to the 57s-4000 and unplugged filter?

Did the hood seal come pre-cut, or did you cut it yourself?

I wonder about heat soak with this intake in slow/stopped traffic... I can't imagine that it is pulling much cool air through the factory intake locations. The open top and end would reduce vacuum inside the box considerably.

If you think about it, could you pull your left headlight, shut the hood and take a picture of the hood seal?

The sound is louder than k&n 57s-4000 Intake. The Roush your can really hear the motor roar from the second you step on the gas. The k&n I would say takes a heavier foot to hear the engine.

As far as the rubber seal for the hood, I had to cut it myself.

Heat soak I have not encountered yet but I also do not live in a heavily populated area. For a picture even with the headlight out I still do not have a decent view of the top of the box with the rubber seal.

Dyno still pending after last night. I keep getting pushed to back burner because they are doing me a favor and doing the dyno runs for free.

No I did not make it to dyno. I still waiting on my friend to give a thumbs up for go time. He's been getting pretty backed up in dyno tuning and I'm on duty from 6-6 but normally edup working 6-8or9 at night so he would normally do it fr free after I get off. I'm thinking we will ake dyno timethis week but not sure

Creative, you mention that the Steeda is the favored of the 3, is it worth the $100 premium over this Roush or would you say this is the best value for your dollar?
