plus the filter is still behind the radiator. better off putting it behind the driver side headlight and boxing it in to separate from the rest of the engine bay. or route it up to the inside the bumper like TurboTim

I saw a setup on the cold side that ran the intake either over the valve cover or in that groove between the firewall/VC on CR once. It came back up and had the filter in the same damn spot right beside the TB, I'll try to find the pic.
