I cut out the headlight mounting panel to match the intake opening.
Be prepared to clean your filter a lot more though.......

I did the same, and modified my Airaid intake. I dropped a temp Gauge in there before and after, and it was 60+ degrees difference. Don't know how much more air is going in, if any, but it was a cooler start.

See my pictures for the mod!

Wasn't bad. Lexan from Home Depot, dremel to cut it, and a drill. When you drill the holes. start small and work up to the larger size hole.
