Default Cold air intake through foglight openings

To answer etam's question yes I have thought of that. I want to get some rounds for the inner grille area and use the opening on the passenger side for a intake. I would mesh the area on both sides. I think it would work great plus look good too.

What are you afraid of sucking up? I dont drive in deep water so I don't think it would be a problem. Heck I was thinking about it and with the silencer removed and the foglight hole open I am sucking alot more air than usual. The air would shoot up the fender area and be sucked into the stock air box.

It's not so much deep water or Snow but Small birds, furry forest creatures along the roads to fishing spots traveling @ high velocities down those dirt roads that might get inadvertantly put in harms way

Yeah, I've kinda got a setup like that. For now what I've done is fabricate some mesh to fit in the opening, using the foglight mounting screws to hold it in place. I put some rubber edge protector stuff around the mesh so it wouldn't chafe the bumper skin. During last summer and fall, while it was still warm, I removed the passenger side foglight and mounted the mesh in there. After the autocross season was over, I put the foglight back in, just in case the weather called for it during the winter. That, and I won't really have a need to try to get cooler air in there. What I'd like to do is get some good aftermarket foglights, and mount them in the bottom center part of the bumber (down below where I've got my Hella's mounted). Anything would be an improvement over the factory lights. They're not worth much anyway. I'm not sure about leaving the driver side open. I'm afraid it would act like a big parachute in the fender well, unless I could find some use for all that air (brake cooling?). Anyway, here's a pic of it. It's not a good shot of the mesh or anything, but you get the idea. Sorry it's so big. It's from the local SCCA website. I could take some closeup pics if anybody wants to see it better.

Yeah the mesh would keep out birds, squirrels, ect. I am going to run some of that black gutter water pipe through there. I will make some kind of catch to place behind the fog opening out of fiber glass.

I don't really thing you'd see any gains, and perhaps see some loss at WOT, with a setup like that. You'd have to add a fair amount of length, and some pretty serious bends, to the intake to scoop from the foglight opening. I think that would more than offset any gains you would see from the cooler air. Length, and velocity are far more critical than the density differences of a few degrees.

I don't see it that way. I have the stock air box with a panel filter. The intake into it is only as big as the hole in the box. So there won't be any length added to the intake. It will just direct air to the hole in the air box. There won't be any big bends because I would use a flexible hose. I figure the gutter pipe is about 4" so that will bring plenty of air to the box. It is basiclly a cold air intake that goes into the air box. I have seen alot of cold air intakes that are smaller. That is just my opinion.

brake cooling duct on both side and cool air to air box is what I am thinking.. another project next few weeks

I got a set of Hella 550ff fog light in place of the stock fog.. I will try to get some photos.

Default Weapon-R ram air kit

Installed it last summer...work really nice...just install the ram air shield to the dragon filter and run the flexible hose through the right fender down to the right OEM foglight, which has been removed, and has been replaced with Raybrig's Type 100 HID driving lights...Then just mount Weapon-R's inlet in back of the light. Then I mount Catz 5" SR spot lights in the center air dam, but this has nothing to do with the intake!

How are you routing from the foglight opening to the airbox?? The stock intake routes into the fender well, then terminates behind the pass side headlight. The foglight opening is a good foot below the headlight, and you would have to have some near 90-degree bends, even with flexible hose, up and around the engine. There isn't a straight shot from the light opening, to the airbox.

Before you correct me you need to go out and look at your engine compartment. I can stick my hand in through the foglight opening and touch the airbox opening. It is a totally strait shot.

I wouldn't argue with HIHO on that one.
