full cold air

i figured out by accident how to install a full cold air intake system straight to the ground it looks great and gives a nice little boost but it is kinda expensive unless u r replacing ur headlight with the projector/halo light kit

well what u have to do is get the aftermarket headlight i got the projectors cause the back is smaller and gave me enough room to fit it down through the triangle hole right i had to take the intake from a dodge stratus (aftermarket ) my friend had it laying around from his old car and i cut part of it to make it work but u will need to move the i think its the coolent pump thats in the hole and it will fit but ya will post pics when i put it back on i have to paint it first though so prolly later this month
