I have some questions. First, is it really almost 3/8" thick aluminum, or did you mean .035"?
Also, what is the diameter of the little intake holes drilled in the top? If I go by my guess of 1/4" ( and my best attempt at counting the holes) that only gives you around 2.5 square inches of total opening for intake air (equivelant to 20% less cross sectional area than a 2" round tube). Any worry that is causing restriction?
How sturdy are the "dryer vent" tubes? Will it hold up where it is laying on the edge of the metal there? Maybe use something to protect it from that edge?
Speaking of metal edges, what are the blue and tan wires in the last two pictures? The tan one in particular seems stretched rather snug around two metal edges. Might want to protect them from chaffing.
Also, those under-hood lights along the front of the engine compartment. Don't those just blind the crap out of you if you try to work under the hood with them on?
