It needs another stack on the other side. Oh and move one of the filters onto the other guard.

Sick!

so 'functional' is an excuse for 'looks like arse'

Would have been less work AND more functional to keep the exhaust and aircleaner inside the body.

i totaly dissagree with the air cleaner bit, a turboed motor of that size needs a crap load of air, trying to fit an aircleaner inside the engine bay that would flow enough would take a big effort, and being able to change air filters easily is another thing to consider

the only other option he would have had would have been to move the battery to the rear of the car and then use the battery space for the 2nd filter, but it would then be a pain in the arse to check and change filters, i doubt that you would be able to fit a single air filter in there that would flow enough with out going to great expense or risk useing an inferior air filter

i too would have tried to keep everything inside the engine bay but it definatley wouldnt be less work and it would be a pain in the arse to change filters
