I have the BTG model on my '05 GT. Certainly gives alot more air intake versus the stock box.

The basic difference is the cold air is better for horsepower, the short ram is better for mileage.
Horsepower takes gas to "feed".
Both give improve throttle response ove the stock - and sound nice.

Ok,

Im thinking of doing thos box mod., But:

I was wondering if I need to even run a pipe from the box to the fender? Or can I just leave it as an open hole in the bottom of the airbox? Maybe even put some mesh over the hole to keep stuff out of the airbox... what you think?

You should have an oval pipe from the right side of the air box going to the fender. Don't you?

Yes there is an oval pipe that goes from the middle of the airbox to the fender, I took it off for cleaning (OCD moment). Do I really need to install it back? is it going to change the way my car performs? Help, Hurt? Ill post pics in about 30 minutes if needed.
