So I was going through some old stuff and found my old cold air intake from my last car. Took the hack saw out and cut it intoa few pieces, bought some clamps and set up a real cold air intake for my car. Took a few shots while putting it together....

I hope you dont drive through any massive puddles or in the rain. Looks awesome though.

with the splash guard and all the other stuff down there I don't think water will be an issue.

any performance or sound

buy an AEM bypass valve so it will rule out u ever sucking up any water

any performance or sound

Can't really tell for either. I have a full exhaust, so I mean there could be a slight sound difference, but I can't tell when WOT. I don't think any intakes really give a noticable amount of increased performance, so without a dyno I woundn't be able to tell, and even then it might be like +1 hp.
