Before I removed the radiator cover, I would trim it like this...


Go to your local parts store to grab some edge trim made to protect doors and slap it on there. I think it looks pretty clean compared to nothing at all.

That does actually look pretty darn nice. I'll give that a whirl! Thanks.

You'd think it'd be relatively easy to make sure a hole lines up with another hole during the design process.

I would get the X IC first,(you won't regret it) then if necessary cut it in like the carbon fiber pic. Then get Drew's FQ-400 intakes and you will be good to go. You'll have a nice clean look and all the fresh air she can take.

It is said that our intakes are perfect for our stock turbo....

Once you upgrade the turbo THEN and only THEN should you upgrade the intake.

I only put a drop-in

Yeah,

I'm really not into the CAI thing. They can tend to be a waste of time and money for most cars until you're running BIG boost. I am going to get a larger intercooler eventually. Just purchased my cat-back to put on when I put my HFC on. Bigger intercooler and LICP and then I'll be done for awhile. I'll post pictures in a build thread as I go along. Thanks for the tips. I'm thinking I might let a professional body shop do that particular cut and stripping. I would hate myself forever if I FUBAR'd the cooling plate. Even though I'm sure in three months I'll have a new fancy CF one. Haha.
