Hi Jerry.. why not continue to use the stock straps? I don't think they'll obstruct the air flow..and they might like look fine..
Just a thought..

Funny...I'm working on a CAI that will mount to the existing SC airbox as well...with a price range of $100-150, and should be good for some HP gains.

Also...for the arrows, try Adobe Illustrator, not Photoshop. You should be able to d/l a demo from adobe.com.

Hi Emptyo.. Do you have any pics of your Air box cover? I'd like to see it as I'm sure others would too..

Jorge (Targa Dude)

Edit: If not, what materials did you make it from?

No offence to any of the designers, but I can't recall so much effort spent on such a useless accessory. It's like tits on a boar hog.

Mark, I'm sure you have offended none.. but tell me what is the difference from this accessory and lets lets say.. a duck tail on a street car that has never seen any track time? or spending the time or money to have FUCHS polished out.. its pretty obvious that others on the board have shown plenty of interest in this for these two "Designers" to have taken the steps to have their products and ideas manufactured.
I have no doubt that plenty of Porsche owners on this board will gladly sport their wares.

Great point Jorge!! I don't see any of my upgrades sucking water down the intake though. Again, not trying to bust any chops, JMO.

Mark, It's just a design charette. Some of us just want something a little more attractive in the engine compartment besides the perfectly engineered but asthetically challenged stock box cover. Let us have our fun and some of us can have their laughs. How many of us polish, plate and refinish our fans, shrouds etc.

Here's my new prototype. It has the advantage of being able to close off it's nostrils in a downpour. The downside is that your car will leave huge piles of poo everywhere you go.

Ah! . . whiskers and mounting-ears. . . I knew it needed something.

Will I need a turbo-tail for that design?

Mark,
Nice red fan! I've heard that adds 3-5 horsepower. Does that and your induction system make you a "hippo" crite.

Mark what's that little addition weigh? I am thinking she might need a diet before I allow her on my car

I like Al's comment but sadly Mark's car only looks good on the outside...no foo, foo, coffee table, painted fans for them Texas boys. Does Mark do track days in cowboy boots !

The lower jaw and tusk must serve as airjacks for the rear end

The problem with my design is that the hippo ass sits squarely in the driver's seat. My friends concur.

Oh, and Dane, the boots make heel-toe an adventure.

I like both designs.

JMPRO are you thinking of adding screens to the openings? If you mentioned that already and I missed it sorry, I just think it would finish the look off.

Also has anyone seen the pic of the painted airbox cover in this post?

Show me your fan's.. please..

What kind of paint is needed to paint the airbox cover?

Shawn

No screens, i to thought that might look good but it is just too expensive to have them manufactured and then there is the added labor to install them. I have changed my mind on the o-ring hold downs, i have another idea i worked on today and will fill you in later.
As for the paint any rattle can paint will work, i perfer Krylon.
