Do you have any pictures of the under hood setup going through the firewall? If I could make this happen like yours then it would be sweet. I have inspection next month and could ask them to put the inspection stickers 6" higher than at the bottom. Hmm......
i can try to snag a pic for you tomorrow.

i don't know why others did not do it. i have mine on my drivers side without issue. only used about 2' of tube as well, but my filter sits outside as well.
similar underhood setup as others, just some flexible hose adn a few couplers to make it all work. i did away with my stock airbox (well, never had one) and am just using the stock intake hose coupled to the flexible hose ran out through the cowl to a pod filter under the cover.
and it does not hamper vision at all, hardley even notice it is there actually, but makes a helluva sucking sound at start up
like the location! keeps the engine bay cleared up and my wifes view open. since i cut my fenders and removed liners and i live in NC where we have no stickers anymore...this could work later for stage 2
Why not bypass the airbox completely to free up space? There's a Spectre and Thor cowl intake which is a great option, but why not take those a step further to include this humvee-style prefilter? Has anyone done this? I'm really interested in removing the air box, adding colder air, and moving induction to above the hood.
I think he was using the airbox as a filter holder. The factory airbox is actually pretty efficient if you close up the front hole. You can buy an acutal cowl setup with metal pipes off ebay for like $60 that has a small filter and goes directly into the throttle body.

Sorry for the revival of the thread.. Why not bypass the airbox completely to free up space?

I've been thinking about this. I like the Spectre product better but I'd like to add a snorkel-top to the cowl, hummer style. Would that kind of setup be less noisy than Spectre's typical setup? I want the space in the engine bay but I don't want to hear air sucking in the glove box area.
Did you check the mpg comparing to the no snorkel state?
(I'm asking since I'm not sure that air flow is optimal that way)
