With a couple more pieces you can replace that big box on top of the engine too. That is just a noise dampener with a 90 degree bend in it. Even with the box in place it looks very good. Nice work.

Nomotivgirl,

Are the two screws that I highlighted functional?

Yeah you can unscrew it
So is it a single tube from the Hemiholitz box to the air filter, or, as I expect, separate pieces that you fit together to accept the vacuum hose?

Nice work!! :)
Now all you need to do is fit a baffle of sorts (maybe out of sheet metal or plastic) to isolate all that hot engine compartment air from the filter.....a project for another day!!

That's what I was going to ask. It looks AWESOME--GREAT job, but isn't the fact that it isn't shelided from the hot air (like the Airaid, etc. kits are) going to sort of defeat the purpose of the added/open airflow?
