: :I took off the black molding and cut a 6 inch hole across and a 3 inch hole up. I cut the molding to match. The hole is the same size as the molding. The molding clips right in. It looks great. I also bought another new piece of molding to put in when it rains. I took a 3 inch exhaust pipe aad cut and had it bent down, so the air filter is right in front of the hole. It looks like dinans only it is painted black and cost $5.

: to a CAI. I am considering running a duct from my brake vent to in front of my Dinan CAI. I know a couple of you out there have done this...any problems. What about running from the front spoiler?

This sounds interesting....Tell me how you cut the bumper where the molding is...That is, is there aluminum at that height, which you have to cut through? Did you have to remove your bumper to do it?
But I dont have a clear picture where you make the hole...Do you make it the same place Dinan did in their White cpe on in Roadtest reviews section? Also, it sounds like you cover the hole with the molding...Doesnt that block it? And if you cover with molding, then why do you need another piece for the rain?
Give us a better picture...Thanks.
