you would have to run either sheetmetal tubing or plastic/pvc tubing with the appropriate bends to run it all the way down to the foglight hole(s).
tho I have to ask, why would you want to run it there? the area behind the grill is wide open and there are already a couple of companies making a ram air intake that is fed straight off the front.
one main thing to look at is the crossover point at which when you go too low on the intake it is no longer a cold air intake as the air temps right above the road are higher than those 2 ft above the road.

actually the stock box doesn't appear to be to bad at getting fresh air...

Starts at 98.6, creeps to 100 and then drops down to 86... (this is during a 1/4 mile run)

Interesting idea, but...

It looks like what's on the back of my clothes dryer, its too low to the pavement and will draw warmer air off the pavement than the other CAI options...

I just can't imagine putting 20 bucks of Home Depot sheetmetal on my $40,000 car. But if you like it... Go for what you know!

Thanks for the informative post. Dash Hawk, eh? Very nice.

Did I miss it? What was ambient air temp? I'd guess it was about 86 degress?

Ambient was about 70 to 72... I was kind of hot lapping the car... LOL! Under "normal" driving conditions the IAT is about 7 to 9 degrees over Ambient... I'm guessing getting some heat of the radiator an the other coolers...

And yeah, i was surprised but my Dashhawk works pretty darn good on the Camaro... Glad i kept it when I got rid of my Mustang... almost gave the Dashhawk away a few times, thinking I would never need it again! LOL!

If you would run it through the one fog light what are you going to do with the other one? Same thing or leave the light?


I imagine that would look kinda goofy
