that's fine that you have your heart set on it, but I just don't like how the air makes a 180 degree turn. not the best air velocity in my opinion. I mean you want the smoothest possible flow into the engine. Theoretically a medium sized straight pipe would be best with air being forced in from a Hood
scoop. But our engines are mounted transversely so the best we can get in a tight compartment is one smooth bend to 90 degrees and a straight pipe going down to the undertray. That translates to an Injen
that is cut before it bends into the fenderwell (it still draws cold air with a few mods too). And that's what I have done. It works well with the PFC btw.
If you don't have a PFC to compensate for slight boggin' as some say and can wait for a TPR, then maybe get that if you believe in fins like they do.
If you are nutso, the best is actually to cut your Hood
and instead of having the straight section go to the undertray have it go to the hole with a Hood
scoop and have it all pressure sealed for a ram-air effect. oh yeah and put fins in like TPR would say.
