Here is what i've done:
Removed rear secondary HOT air intake....blocked it off with a piece of
clear plastic and cauked for nice seal.  See photo here:

Then cut extra opening in front of box and also drilled several air holes
and 3 small holes in bottom of box so that water could drain if my semi ram
air setup loads it up at all.
see cut out section on left

notice the small hole in the bottom just in case of H20....

Works great....sounds like a small block v8.
Originally had a sealed ram air system with the back HOT air sealed off, but
she fell on her face at 5500rpm's.  Figured the only thing it could be was
the lack of air volume......did this ...and all is well to 7K now :-)

I just modified my modified airbox. Since I had the P-FLO and just bought a
ND Exhaust Stainless VR6, and wanted to hear THAT, rather then the P-FLO.
Here's what I did, since I also had "Midknight Motorsports Airbath System" I
used it to my advantage. Here's How:

I cut a hole in the airbox right next to the hole for the air inlet, that
the "L" shape pipes inserts into the box, and other end into the fender. Why
did I cut a hole right next to it, so I could stick the Airbath tubing into
the lower section of the box, now I have "WAY COOL" air, and "COOL" air.
>From the top it looks totally stock, it's only when you go searching around
the bottom can you see the airbath tube..


	Ahhh That's what a stock VR6 kinda sounds like.. Did you know if people
honk now you can hear them.. It was sorta of nice, just me and the road and
that deep hum of the ND Exhaust. I think the vehicle is even more stealth
now without the P-FLO. Reason; it doesn't sound as if you are trying with
all your might to take someone off the line for a quick race.

	Oh yes where were we? Hmm..Umm... Test Drive, Everything is pretty much the
same, execpt I notice I can't climb to 100mph as fast as I Could with the
P-FLO. I wouldn't say it's a handicap of any sort, it stills climbs fast..

Vehicle Mods: ND Stainless Dual Borla Exhaust, Modified Airbox, Not sure
what chip I have in at the moment, Bilstein/Neuspeed suspension, and
