I think you need to look at the pics again. The hood is notched and closes over the tube, the tube doesn't run through the hood.Do you have a way to quick disconnect it when you need to open the hood ?
Can you relocate the air box to the drivers side and run the pipe straight into it?All I have left to do is connect it to my stock airbox with some dryer vent tube from Home Depot and some additional waterproofing under the hood.
Not necessarily. I did a CAI on a car that used PVC pipe. I was able to joint two pieces with a 3" OD by using a rubber join that had a 3" ID.Obviously I'm limited to something that uses a 3"ID because my snorkel pipe is 3"OD.
