That is also a W.A.I. I myself mounted my air filter behind the front bumper and i have a 3' flex hose connecting it. I used the piping from my C.A.I kit.sorry bro, that is not a cold air intake, its right above the tranny soaking all the heat!, i see you have an optima! this is what i recomend..... put the optima in the trunk, rum your intake behind the headlight, and run a ram air to that, and that is the most effective way by far to run a CAI, post pics if you do it. i like your clean engine bay!
here is the setup that i suggest!
W.A.I.? try again buddy!, if you are running it behind the bumper you must be using a long hose which is slowing you down, behind the headlight is C.A.I especially when the intake is heat wrapped, has a ram air from the front bumper, and is not to far away from the throttle body, thus giving you optimal power! i have tried it many ways, on 626's mx's and probes and this is the best way! and when you move the battery you transfer weight to the rear making your car have a better weight disturbution!That is also a W.A.I.
