Zoodad Mod

Finally got around to taking the time for making this modification. Between the pregnant wife pulling me away every few minutes and other hiccups throughout the evening, it got dark before I knew it

Wondering what "noticeable" improvements I'll see!

Zoodad looks good! Of topic, but is that a stock tranny cooler setup you have on there?

The only benefit you may see is a little bit cooler IAT. Other than that, there is no noticeable difference.

How "direct" of an airflow path is it to the filter? For me, I'd be nervous about snow, rain, and watery adventures.

I did a lot of research on this a few months ago and read tons of forums from all different sites. Many posed the same questions dating back to around late 2005 with all equally answered results from sources all over the country. Bottom line is that nobody has seen a problem yet or ever encountered a wet filter. Only adverse effect is slightly larger debris at filter over time. To prevent even that, any ol' screen in place of the hole fixes that. I havent made mine as large as others and will keep an eye out naturally for anything that can go wrong. All in all though, its a quick, easy, trouble free mod.

Edit: The air flow is pretty much as direct as possible without cutting into the hood. You can see the filter if you open it up enough. "Ram-air effect" as some have posted.
