Dont know if i was seeing things or not, maybe someone could help.. i believe it was a 2012 sierra denali hd. On the upper left corner of the passenger side front fender was a small rectangular shaped air intake grille, similar to those seen on many modern vehicles. I always wanted to do a mod like this, to get more air into the engine. So, is this a mod or is it stock...?:think: thanks..

Considering the air boxes are in the front of the engine bay...I don't see them having any effects on performance. Pretty sure that looks like the stick on ones you can get from Stylin Concepts too...

In theory they help release warm air produced by the engine, but I can't see it dissipating enough to consider that ugly shit.

This,
The amount of heat they get rid of is minimal, not enough to effect stock performance.

If you want something similar to that style of intake then look into the Volant CAI, I've seen them have some sort of duct that goes behind the lower grill or something like that.

Im sure that's good at sucking up water, if you ever went of road air intake tube right by the tow hook.

Especialluy considering the Sheetmetal of the outer fender doesnt connect to the engine bay at all, so good luck getting heat through the structural Frame and Fenderwell that seperates the skin from the Engine bay.

DO people even think about the questions they ask, before asking them?

Here's the Volant setup that I had mentioned. In theory it would be better than a regular style CAI, but not that much better than the stock airbox to justify the price tag.

I like my volant, I own 2...never a drop of water in the airbox, even after a ton of rain and accidentally slamming into a pool of water about 50mph. checked, but I was good haha.

Yeah the only way I see water getting way up in there is if the entire duct is submerged in water. Other than that, they're cool IMO if you have the extra $$
