The filter came in today. Take a look, should fit behind the foglight perfectly, going out to install now.

Here are the install photos with the new filter, which allows the last stainless pipe to connect better using a smaller silicone coupler than before (it was a big black bulgy connector before). So the filter you will need is K&N RB-0910 available at Auto Zone, Advance Auto Parts, ebay, online etc...The key with this filter is not only the size but the angle it has on it to allow it to fit down there perfectly. See the photos:















The key to the install is turning the wheel so everything is easily accessible. (ignore my curb rash and LOW TREAD tires)



To remove this back cover, there are three bolts on the inside wheel wheel, one is a 10mm bolt, the other is one of those plastic black caps, also 10mm, and the third bolt is actually one of those things you push in the middle of to pop it out...There are also two 8mm bolts on the bottom part of this piece...





Alrighty, now all I need to do is get pricing. Kit will most likely just include the stainless pipes, since the couplers are available anywhere, and I told you what size filter to get. But if you insist, I can get all the parts for you and package the deal...

Dan you don't PERMANENTLY remove that cover It's just to install it. See the photo with the tire in it. Well that photo you have above, is looking to the right of the tire. Inside the wheel well there...

Notice that white circle pulley thing in both pics...

Yeah it took me some time to look through all those filters on K&N's web site http://www.knfilters.com/search/univround.aspx and find one that fit perfectly. I was amazed I got it right on my first try....

, the only thing I worry about for this placement is the amount of airflow. I don't know if there is a way to measure air flow, but I have something to measure temps to compare the difference...I just worry I am not getting enough air flow. I am even thinking about remove the foglights for better flow...

have you thought about trying to enlarge the whole that allows air to flow in. if i get the fender intake i want to cut out a little bit of the bumper that is perpendicular to the foglight facing the ground which would allow more air to get to the filter. maybe throw a piece of mesh there to block bigger debris

Yeah I checked that, but it seems like it will only allow air flow to where the old filter was better, not to the new position. It seems like the only way to increase air down there is to remove the folight...

Ok. To make things easier on me, so I don't have to handle it I sent the plans over to Group 9, and they are making the pipes for $69. Then you pay for exact shipping to your zip. So let's get a list together of everyone who is definately interested with your zip code.

I believe this will fit the stock N/A with the resonator box, instead of the genuinesaab intake tube...

EDIT: Note, you will responsible for purchasing three silicone couplers and the correct filter (both available at Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts), this price is just for the two stainless pipes...

Is it possible to buy only the pipe that connects to the resonator? And if so, how much would it cost? I don't intend to run my intake behind my foglight.

The price would probably just be half of $69 so $34.50, but let me check to make sure.
