It helps a ton to get cold air to the engine instead of hot engine compartment air. Banks advertises a 39 h.p. gain with their cold air intake and superscoop. I was a little skeptical but immediately noticed a significant difference once installed. It just seems to run stronger. Highly recommend a cold air intake (and an air scoop as long as you aren't constantly driving through water over a foot deep) Mine has a drain on the other side to allow any water to run out.

I thought about making a similar setup. But I want to hide the intake side. Maybe I'll cut out the foglight holes and use that location. Great pics thanks for posting them.
