Why not just swap out the stock air box for the new RS box ( CLEANER ASSEMBLY - AIR - FORD (G1FZ-9600-A) )? it is about $50 and if you look at the opening in the lid it lines up with the inside corner of the drivers side headlight very well. There is virtually no obstructions from obtaining "fresh air" at that point.

Living in AZ prevents me from installing a fresh air intake due to the location being often so close to the ground. In the summer (or about 80% of the year), on busy roads, and in traffic those temps are pretty high so it make no sense to drop the air intake so low.

I'm noting that the RS airbox still uses the factory inlet tubes for fresh air, so it's not a replacement for the ram air horn mod of this thread.

Looks like Mountune has something similar (and more $$) called the X4 Quad Entry Induction Kit!!!!

What do you do with the resonator? Just set it aside and not use it?

It doesn't get used, because the hole you cut in the bottom , for placement of rubber hose, is where the resonator used to be.
