Yep :cry:

I was in hospital recently and the nurse asked her if in her opinion my ankles looked swollen.......

Quick as a flash, she said - "Nope its his body that looks swollen!" :eek:

Well, it lets a little more intake and induction noise out as well as that damned loud "phutiiiiiissssshhhhhh" :p

So I reckon an extra 5 bhp easy ;)

Good idea, is the intake sound noticably louder? IMHO it would look better if the angle of the vent matched the wheel arch angle, still nice though.

Looks great Chris! Great idea! :cool:

How'd you think of that anyway?

(Soon he's going to cut out his roof to have one of those huge sunroofs that seem to be in style now... :eek: )

That looks great. I have to say if I ever find an 04 Aero in Laser Red I'm going to steal that idea. How large are the openings in the vent because they look very small.

I was walking by an Impreza today and noticed it was missing its right side vent. Chriiiiis, where'd you get that? :nono;

I personally wouldn't do it, but i think it's a pretty clean, and clever idea to help air flow to the intake... not very many other options to do this that look 1/2 as decent IMO.

looks very good. did a good job on that. it takes some guts to be cutting on a nice car like that! it looks like it flows very well with the car though. thumbs up!

I think they work either way, but you'll probably have more air going in due to the open edge, in the air flow.
Looks cool!

I'm sorry Chris, but i think they look silly, or "boy ricer" as i believe you guys across the pond call it.

You mean "boy racer"? I don't like or dislike them. To be honest unless Chris had pointed it out i probably wouldn't have even noticed the black vent on black bodywork. ;oops:
