yea looks ok ;) can improve!

but not bad an idea from the 'scoop' :D

i think u actually can stuff the hose straight on! no need adaptor (to airbox)

methinks i'll go make more bell-mouths..

jaywat,

ur front scoop... if wanto take it to extreme.... de shape is not suitable i think... it will occur a starvation situation where de air is not flowing into de hose smoothly...

u should use an bell mouth instead.. de curve is terbalik from ur "scoop"

Actually the DIY turn out a little different than what i expected lo..i planned to face scoop mouth more perpendicular to the grill, so the air can directly ram into the hose, but due to the hardness of flexi hose and limited space between the grill and car body, i'm force to adjust it facing side abit.

Second thing, the skin and structure of the hose actually make the hose wider than i think. So my plan to stuff the hose through fender there didn't work out, the hole at the fender is 2.5 inches only.. so what i do is using an 2 inches pipe to interconnect the flexi hose in engine bay and the hose at the bottom. So in the process of cold air intake, i expect lost of some amount of cold air. Since this CAI is mean for high speed cruising, so i think the cold air still can easily reach the air filter box.
