Good Idea, but make sure you have a snorkel or something.... don't need water everywhere in the intake lol... lots of foreign objects can get sucked up in there heh.

for all you 9-5 drivers, this is on ebay
a 9-5 bumper with a ram air intake

9-5 Bumper
im guessing that the little hole could be used for a ram air intake

that would be nice. i was thinking of doing that but not having a hole in the bumper. just having the intake run down infront of front pumper....Just purchase the (water filtration) from aem...think its about $35 \you install after the filter in the pipe somewhere..should be fine and not suck up any water...im not sure with turbo, but thats what i did with my crx. and it pulled alot harder. quick easy mod you could do in an after noon. also i have a buddy that did cut a hole in the bumper and ran custom intake to it. he mad a cap for it also. he capped it when it rained...you can go about it either way...

looks pretty hardcore, and torque numbers are increased.

well first off thats a Viggen front bumper. trust me i know from experience.....thats a hole where u put a big screw with a circle in the end to get towed up by. cause the car is too low to be hitched up any other way. There is generally a little cover that comes with it and it is barely noticable when its on.
