I'm thinking about trying to smooth out the inside of the air box. I think it will expose more of the outer area of the air filter. Letting the turbo suck up more air. The hole in the side of the air box looks very restrictive. The hole on the side of the box just seems really small, I might cut the hole on the side of the air box and make it larger so more air can come in faster, and then make a larger inlet pipe directing fresh air into the air box. Or I was thinking about cutting a circle in the bottom of the air box, In a moving car the air won't be to hot, I think I may try a few different setups. Does anyone think this might work? I've heard about just taking the lid off but I think a bigger hole on the side or a hole in the bottom will feed it cooler air rather than just taking off the lid. Anyone have any ideas?

umm....no....not worth it trust me the most cool/fresh air you are gonna get is gonna come from the fender.

this reminds me of the mustang airbox mod, removing the rubber boot from the air box. I know that this is not always a good thing on the mustang, but i am not to sure of the airbox setup on the srt-4 yet. However, the only way that this mod affects the mustang is by allowing hot air enter the airbox. it might be worth a try.

Have you looked inside the air box yet? The filter has plastic fins all around it, I just don't think air can come in on all its sides, its a very tight fit. I think with the fins filed down(with a dremel tool) the air filter should be able to take in alot more air. Just thought I'd see what everyone else thought.

I think I might go to TAP PLASTIC on saturday, buy some plastic an maybe just make a new air box with a much larger inlet on the right side with a much larger inlet feeding it from inside the fender in the drivers side. It probably wouldn't cost more than $20.00 I think it would really make a difference! What do you guys think?

yup! Thats why I can make a few different boxs and see what works best, plastic is cheap, and if it works good I'll have my friend Matt make it out of carbon fiber. He made a new fuse box for my 98 neon R/T out of carbon fiber back before I sold the car it was really cool. He also made a carbon fiber heat sheild around the filter in my 99 saleen SC. I think a better flowing box/inlet would help the car breath even better!
