Are you cutting out the inner hi beams leaving two empty holes for the intake? If so thats a hot idea.

I am cutting out the inner portion of the headlights where the city lights are and making them into intakes. The inlets are just wayyyy too small on the stock car and it is covered by teh hood when shut. Shold make some good power. I want the black headlights so it can hide the hole better. I will probably just end up ordering a new one since it doesnt seem like anyone wants to get rid of one. I will post end pics and results.

Smart man!
you better post pics when thats done lol. good luck :)
I will, thanks.
How do u plan to cover the holes? So rain/water and other things that shouldn't be in your engine are not?
A mesh screen. Dont forget that the airfilters are still in place and would not allow anything to get through them. I will just need to clean them more often. In terms of rain, I dont drive my car in the rain unless I absolutely have to. I seriously doubt the rain would get all the way up the intake, through the filters, and into the motor. As a precautionary measure I may drill a small hole in the bottom of the intake runner for water to come out. I will be doing more research on this. People run this type of intake on other types of cars without problems

so you just doing custom pipeing into those light holes...where are you taping into? The pipes that are already there or just new pipes from the intakebox?
