Due to the heat issue, I myself thought about if there is a way to use the stock air box with a cone filter but I couldn't think of anything. The way the box is set up it would be difficult to cut or alter in any way much less do it in a way that doesn't look completely boot leg. I don't really have any extra money to be spending on crab intakes and heat shields and such so I left the airbox stock, got the K&N drop in filter, took out the resonator, and made a grill ram-air intake tube. It seems to work fine but I haven't found a really noticeable difference good or bad- except possibly a slightly more aggressive sounding engine, which is probably because that resonator is gone.

Mods: custom grill ram-air intake, stock airbox w/ K&N drop-in filter, and custom engine paint
