well after reading many threads i came up with this airbox mod,
i'm only 15 but done this mod for my dads car,and didnt have the right tools only used the drill, a knife, lighter and a rubber mullet. but still managed it,first i got the bottom half of the airbox which was a spare one so didn't care if i f**k it up,well first of all i cut the hole out on the airbox on da side picture below...

then i though i wanted to do somethign different not just cut a hole so i got a rubber that belongs to a airbox and somthing that was like a brackt which the rubber fitted on perfect,i then melted the middle of it(this bracket i made up was froma suby box for the cables LMAO,anywais melted the middle looked somthing like this after i done that part...

That will never fit back into the car mate. You have a 3in flexi pipe coming out of the fender side of the airbox. You have only about 1/2 inch gap between the airbox sidewall and passenger fender to start with.

Better tell your old man, before you cut a hole into the passenger fender to fit that pipe.
