I went through my storage to do some cleaning and found a stock drivers side headlight. I was about to through it out, but decided to do this instead [:D] :





I did some cutting, sanding and painting. It matches up great with my volant. [woot]
















I painted the exterior silver to match the car. The inside is flat black. I also used some flex tube to connect it to my Volant intake. The flex tube is a bit smalled in diamitter than the rear headlight access. So, i just used some tape to creat a seal.

I also bought some door trim to put on the edge where i did the cutting, but not sure if it'll look good.

It actually works quite well. Car feels a bit torquey, not much. But it's a great experiment.

Thanks guys!

Driving with one headlight is ok. The passenger's side HID lights up enough, plus i also have the driving lights.

Mike, no birdies yet. [hihi] But, it might be a good idea to add screen, no? rofl.

sweeeet!, maybe you could rig up some before and after intake temps? do you have better throttle response? i bet the air is just begging to be rushed into your engine!
