    For your sake, I hope that I am wrong on this one. In the past, it has been a problem for others. If you experience problems, I would recommend an aluminum shield around the filter and use some flex ducting to direct air from the fender well area to the filter. If you are good with metalwork, build your own airbox in a manner similar to the 2005-2013 V8 Mustangs using sheet aluminum. It polishes up nicely if you don't have many visible dings and scratches..

    I'm with JR on the aluminum heat shield. I think that would look kick ass! I'd like to do something like that for mine.
