Not sure how I feel about that hood scoop yet
Just a thought. After you remove the stock snorkel, there is a large hole. How about using a another tubing of some sort to go from that hole to the original location on the radiator support, and if you have a big moth, that would ram air into the factory box. Maybe a 3d printed connector for the air box and the opening at the radiator support area. Then have a some tubing, kind of like K&N used with their Apollo CAI system to join the two. Just a thought.Just a couple random thoughts to this point...
It appears that the factory air box is restrictive no matter what filter you use.
The main contributor to the air box restriction is the snorkel.
The airbox and airpath to the snorkel will get heat soaked during heavy traffic idling and slow speeds.
Porting the factory box will help airflow restriction.
Porting to engine bay would lessen time for airbox heat soak.
Need to find a place to bring fresh air into airbox port.
The factory intercooler will keep post turbo temps within 20-30 degrees of intake temps.
@Vidmo just curious how has this held up since you did it? Velcro still holding up okay? Do you still have divets filled in?Thanks to @Oreo for all of the work you and others did on this thread.
I recently just purchased a new 2019 and I'm planning to install the Steeda CAI, but the divets in the hood lining was something I wanted to address, and I did not like the idea of manufacturing a cover for it, so I took a different route.
I spent some time looking around the local hardware store today I think I found a relativity easy way to fill in the divets and still allow them to be accessible if you ever need to remove the hood liner. See the attached pics below for my process.
