only places i can think of taking factory filter box out and drilling large holes under it and sealing that corner off with a cold air box, build and tryed the box but couldent bring myself to cut the holes though. onyl prob is all the shit coming of wheels dirtying up the filter. maybe shadecloth over the holes or using flex. duct to direct the air into the cold air box
Pretty good idea, but wouldn't it still have the same problem (ie. where does the cold air come from?)? The biggest problem (as i see it) is trapping the air from the front of the car.
other is drilling a hole in thr front left hand side of the bar and sitting filter behind that
the problem with this is that it looks FAR from factory... would probably look pretty crappy. I thought about doing this, and even investigated whether it would be possible to attach the little holes from an EF/EL bumper, but either way wouldn't look too good.
havent worked out how to get pipework round to the front ducts in the bar yet maybe bumber supports in the way, maybe 2 x 2 in y section back into a 3in then into filter
That's basically what i was thinking of doing, but the biggest problem is (as you said) getting it past the bumper supports.
oterwise put the pod filter on the end of stock inlet hose then raise the bonnet with washers maybe try to get rid of heat that way (tool look)
Yup, you said it - TOOL LOOK. I'd rather go without the intake than look like a retard...
Thanks for your suggestions, mate, it's greatly appreciated. Although it's proving to be a difficult task I am determined to do it!!!
