If you cut the baffle out next to the passenger headlight, the stock air box becomes a cold air intake. Or if you want to use a cone filter, you just need to seal that area off, and cut the baffle off.

This is stock, but have you actually felt how hot that air gets coming from that little hole near the headlight? the intake actually does use some pretty hot radiator air, but Honestly it doesn't seem to impact my performance at all. I was thinking of making a cold air intake by sealing off the area in between the headlights from the engine compartment, but I don't know if its woudl be worth my time.

However, if I do it, I was thinking of using a metal duct designed something like hybrids sheet metal radiator duct.

Iread in time magazine or something about an invention that turns regular air into very cold air...it looks like a megaphone, and once you start it, it starts blowing the colder air...looks like something might be usefull for intakes.
