Using Fog Light Opening For Intake

Has anyone either put in the fog light bezel in a non-fog light car or taken the fog light out of the bezel on an equipped car in order to get more air to their intake? My friend said something about it a while back and I was looking at random parts and saw the bezel I would need. I'd probably put some sort of mesh over the opening to keep large debris out and maybe use some brake ducting and possibly fab up a box to direct air to the intake.

Just wondering if anyone has done this and if it would be worth it.

Honestly if you want to do something like that go with the Newmission mod. That way you could still get fog lights if you wanted.

You already have an FSWerks CAI, don't worry with it. You won't get any magical horsepower out of doing this.

I mean it is pretty common in drag racing to take a head light out or something to get more air directly to the intake. There is probably an equal chance of water getting in there with or without the fog light cover. I don't have fog lights and I don't really want to add them, I hate dealing with wiring.

What is the newmission mod?

I dont see why people are worried about water. Newmissions is about the same height. There should be no worry about water intrusion if you did this mod. Unless you drive in a few feet of water. But you shouldnt be doing that in the first place with such a small car

Thanks.

Kind of what I was planning on doing anyways. I thought it was a Mk2 mod, not a Mk3.
