air box mod

decided to tackle the air box mod and here a few pics of my setup
have the aero kit so didnt decide to use a filter/water sock,
i just neatly ziptied the 3 inch elbow right up to the metal mesh of the bumper
clamps to tighten it to the vent tube that goes up into the airbox
found a rubber intake lying around the fit perfectly from the tube to the box, clamped it down and it fit snug
sound improvement for sure

here are some pics
might see a red gem somewhere in the pics

Similar to what I did a few years ago. Seems better than spending the money on a CAI.

I imagine it will do the job for you, but your work is very sloppy. What i would call a hack job filled with old used scrap parts. Maybe next time shoot for better fit and finish.
