Re: cold air ba xr8???
How i did my SS cold air system,
1.Remove filter box from car.
2.Trace around the new piece and cut 10mm INSIDE the line.
3.Apply high temp silicon around the edge and let set, making a gasket.
4.Cut and place 3, 33mm spacers in the opening of the system, evenly spaced and held in place with stainless steel screws, these will bring the opening to a better size, as the standard size of the opening is only 21mm high.
5.Attach the new corner piece with stainless steel self tapers 2 or 3 per side depending on lenth of side and do up tight---NOT to tight as u will strip the plastic thread
6.Cover the joints with high temp tape -Got mine from Autobarn, Looks like alfoil tape but a lot stronger and sticks like s**t to a blanket.
Hope this has helped, you might want to invest in a K&N filter aswell
