SportsPix said:Hi Hal900x,
I'm going to have a look at making a sheeet metal duct for my Steeda CAI and vent it up in the fender opening to feed the sheet metal housing for the CAI. I'll probably do the same for the brake ducts and fab the backing plates too once the kids are back in school. I have to finish enclosing my garage, doing the drywall and cabinets after I install my new Tokico D Spec struts and dampers to get the Eibach ProKit springs under control.
Oh, BTW, HTH = Hope This Helps.

Interesting that you mention this, because I was poking at the idea of doing the same, using the tubing similar to the one used for a clothes-dryer-ventitation application. I read or heard someone else mention this idea somewhere, and I started poking around down there (underneath the filter box).
What I haven't really figured out is the tube diameter, and whether an aftermarket lower-grill insert, like the Steeda front splitter would be helpful, along with a fabricated intake inlet for the tubing to properly channel the airflow into the tube.
I mention channeling because I'm concerned that a straight-cut tube opening (on the lower grill side) may not route as much airflow as one that was wider at its mouth, concave in design... thoughts?
