    So...I got my BMC air filter today, I was about to go install it when I look in my engine bay and realized this:

    The cold air inlet, the hose which connects the air box to the inlet is missing and it turns out the box is broken at the end...It turns out the guys that fixed my car after it wrecked neglected to fix that part as well.

    So my car has been running on much more restricted air flow and hot air from the engine more or less for the past two years and no wonder it's been running a little rougher than I remember, mixed with the dirty air filter.

    I'm gonna head over to the shop and see if they can fix this mistake.

    Failing that and if you can't get OEM from a scrapper/dealer, you can add an Ebay intake.
