Im wanting yalls opinion on how my bumpers shud look, so heres the options
I drilled holes in the bumper for the CAI to get air and left the other side blank


to me it makes it look out of place,but to some they like the difference in the 2 sides

this is what Im wanting to do on both sides to even it out


so instead of the holes on 1 side you would have the slots on both sides of the bumper or shud I just let it be?

A LOT of that depends on the CAI . . .
If the TRD, none whatsoever.

The reason . . .
The "cup" of the TRD one is actually ABOVE the intake opening. What the intake does is create a high pressure area that serves as a ram-air. I was surprised when I installed it at the brilliance of the design.
The heavy rain drops will hit the SIDE of the plastic shell and go around the intake and fall out the gaps in the bottom of the fender well.
To get significant water into the intake, the water level must be ABOVE the top of the grill/bumper inlet. So, unless one is driving through a flood, the "cup" should stay well above the water and out of the way of the rain.

I wish I had taken shots of the design. From a engineering and practical standpoint, it is VERY impressive! I was SHOCKED at the simple elegance and genius of the design.

I'm agreeing with TJ, too...I like the slots. I want to have all four "grills" match, so I'm waiting until I can afford billet for the upper and sides. I like the lower stock grill and want that same thing on all of them.
