That doesn't look too bad from what i can tell from the photos.

I just have one question.

Have you blocked up the right hand side of the air box (as you look at it from the front) where the filter is?

Surely it's a bad idea leaving it open and filtered like that. That means the air coming through the filter will be heated by the engine. Which is, of course, bad for power.

It's got a charger and intercooler, so I don't think the air filter in the OEM airbox is actually doing anything, other than acting as a cover.

Ahh, didn't notice the induction kit. Fair enough, consider me corrected. :shutit:
