...and why did you think the stock box was bad or a bad design?

GTI owners do this all the time; lop off the stock air filter box next the fender and pop on a cone filter. however, most kits put some sort of shield between the filter and the engine to isolate it from the heat of the engine.

Also, are you going to leave the stock intake snorkel in place to help bring in air to that side of the engine bay?

I guess as long as you block the heat of the engine and route outside air to the filter location, I suppose what you have could be a "cold air intake"; however, now you a filter on a stick and a chopped up stock air box.

Did you do any befores and afters?
