I am thinking this would be a good cold air intake setup. Has anyone tried this? It basically looks like an intercooler behind the grill, but it's actually the air intake, and then a tube directs the air wherever you need it. I wonder how well it would work? I also wonder about rain entering it, maybe there is a drain hole somewhere inside the filter box. Anyone know what I'm talking about when I mention the Arospeed intake?

I am not too impressed....the idea is good...the design is moronic. Don't get one.

Why do you say that? What do you think is not good about the design? Water intake? I am sure there is a water bypass valve that you could install. Or maybe there is a drain hole inside the box. Tell me what you think sucks about it, it looks like it would work and bring in massive unrestricted cold air. shrug..

its all about the shape and the angles. The ones on the arospeed intake are poorly angled. I will tell you what works just as good...maybe better. Get a K&N filter like the one the arrow is pointing to. I can almost tell you for a fact that it will be better than the arospeed intake.

So how about mounting that large one up front then where the Arospeed would go? I think it would work well, but it would get pretty dirty!

Not to mention it might look tacky!

I guess I'm just always on my quest to find the perfect intake for the 3.0!

Actually that design looks good to me. It would work beter than the hot shot... but it looks tacky as all H@ll. Now if you had mesg covering the fron tof your car you wouldn't even see it and it would get a larger volume of air than the Hot Shot.
