Default Air filters?

Are you now running two air filters? or have you removed the flat panel filter in the stock box?

Big difference over factory setup. Not too loud but you can hear it when your wide open. The main thing I wanted was that the lexan blocks the all hot air from the radiator. No air from under the hood gets in the motor, it just pulls air out of the fender.

I had the factory fog covers on and removed them to install the fogs, man, what a difference that made. The small opening next to the fog is NOT big enough to allow the air needed to the motor. She felt like it was running out of air on the top end, which she was. Now, with the fogs in and the opening behind the right fog bigger, she pulls strong to redline. I also used longer bolts and spacers behind the fog light, to move it foward in the bumper to allow more air to flow around it. You can't even notice.

Goobie- I removed the stock panel filter and ran self sticking, window weatherstrip (3/8x3/8) from homedepot around the opening. So the box would seal up. No leaks so far.

I also tried it with the box removed and a piece of 3" hard rubber hose(borrowed from a merc sable) run from the intake to the thottle body. But it would fall off above 5400 rpm and start to sputter and cough. It only ran a 16.14@86mph at Capitol raceway. With the fog cover removed and the box re-installed it ran a 15.88@86mph at Cecil county dragway. I want to go to capitol raceway tonight and see what it will run with the fog light moved foward and the hole behind it opened up larger.

I think you should send me a copy of your intake since you have my car and all

I like the system, and I can't wait to see what kind of times you get. Keep us posted.

I can send you an exact copy of the lexan, then all you need is a filter for the mighty igg bore.

Think I could sell the lexans copies? How much do you think people would pay? They would work great for the rallispec intakes. It would keep the MAF sensor from shaking itself apart. I had a problem with my intake vibrating but solved it, so it might work for the MAF sensor guys too.

I should at least wait till I get a real intake. The Igg Bore goes to the front portal too. Thanks for the offer tho. when I do get a real intake, I'll send a ninja to pick this up .

No offense but I like mine better, plus it only cost me $50 for the intake. And the lexan, well, that's just what I do for a living. You know, Banner Glass and all. I would like to do your stage 2 mod to the box though.

Went to Capitol raceway Friday night. It was about 20 degrees warmer than the last time I ran it and the humidity was 40% higher friday. But the car was only .08 slower than at Cecil county, it went a 15.96@84mph. I'm not setting the world on fire with that kind of et, but it is a good baseline to go off of. The only change I made was moving the fog light out and allowing more air to get in around it.

edit: I have since been a 15.79@86mph since then in hotter/worse conditions.

They are similar but not the same. I put an AEM intake from a 00 rs on my 02 TS and it fit just fine. But the sheild for the 00 is alot smaller.
