do you happen to have any pics of it and also do you feel a difference in the car or is it not worth it

My pic's were taken down by 3rd party host .It is a mod that is well worth it, I'm in Texas so with the crazy heat here it is paramount to do anything to bring thermals in check .Yes it works, I data logged and am glad I made a true CAI system. titan2782 and andbudzi still have pic's up .

Here is exactly what you want to do, just take away the turbo> The piping for your intake runs the same route to your TB.

Video was for IC explanation and intake routing.. In this vid the air filter element is not installed yet but you can see where it goes clearly. As long as you shield your intake piping with gold wrap etc you will have ambient intake temps at minimum.

Enjoy:

This is what my fog replacements look like. They are carbon fiber, made by Enthuspec and can be purchased from Genracer. Im am a boosted 3.8 but as mentioned, just need to fabricate custom aluminum tubing and be good with welding aluminum.

I added the screening to passenger side as that is where my trans cooler is located.

EDIT - it is not letting me post the pictures due to image size.

My car has foglights - 8" diameter intake filter fits snug, fully fills up space between foglight and fender liner. Filter is large because it fits over velocity stack.

Fresh air come from front grill opening, so filter does not get soaked with water (if I were to open up fog light area).

I cut the fake mesh out of the fog light assy and with the fog light assy bezel screws I screwed some gutter screening in place (from Home Depot) to make the CAI truly function at speeds.My CAI is similar to andbudzi but I'm using 4 inch O.D. aluminum piping from Spectre .also used 1... 40 degree rubber elbow ,1... 40 degree aluminum elbow and made a pivot bracket mounted to the fender well for support .Also I am using a 4 to 6 inch bell velocity stack to which my over sized K&N filter is attached to.My Data log showed on a hot 101 degree day moving at 45 mph air intake temps of 88 degrees .CAI with water being sprayed during spirited runs (2,500 through 6,650 rpm's) from my AEM water/ methanol system drops inlet manifold temps such that after a hard run I can open the hood and touch the upper intake manifold which is cool to the touch .I have 2 tanks for my water/meth system ,1 gallon for w/m during nitrous runs and 3 gallons for distilled water during NA runs .

I advise not running the CAI pictured in the rain.... hydrolocking the engine is a very bad thing

You can get a sock for it. I left the gill slits alone on that side. Plenty of ambient air behind the bumper there as is. I did put in a plastic panel between the filter and the frame rail to block off the engine area.

Even though my GC is not my daily driver ,I keep a small screw driver in the glove box so I can disconnect the inlet tube from the throttle body if I do by chance get caught in the rain .But yeah, you must be aware of road and pending weather conditions .
