Has anyone used the fog light tint vinyl yet or the tail light ones?

Oh and if you put them in and they dont work...u have them the wrong way..I found that out haha...theres a specific way to put them in. All u have to do is. open the trunk, take off the black carpet thing on the trunk lid and they pop right out of the socket where they are...

I made it myself, you take off the top of the airbox, take the filter out, get a 6-8"piece of intake tubing (I used 3") and a cone filter and put it on the intake tubing. than put that into the stock tubing lol..the cheapest intake ever haha, and it doesn't throw any codes due to the sensors being on the throttle body.

What are the measurements of the intake cone? I'm gonna go to autozone to look for one myself.
It just any one that you want really, i got the cheapest one which is like 1999...but if you really want to go good, get a k&n intake cone. Mine was an adjustible one, it went from like 4" down to 2.5" in the clamping area...if you get what I mean..I think mine is the APC one they have..

So I basically just set my own cone up like yours SX...and I do notice some gain, but especially the kickass sound!! Theres definitely more kick in the pants gain...and the sound growl definitely sounds mean.
