bI've seen this video of how to install Mugen intake on CL9
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehzJRL2jrGM

And please notice the parts they have installed at min: 2:42 , (step 12, block off plate install ) and min 3:44 (step 15 , install Intake Duct) .

I'm wondering what is the reason for installing the Block-Off Plate (step 12 ) ?
Does it create a chamber along with the Intake Duct ?
Interesting they have chosen to have indirect air feed there , using that Intake Duct (step 16) instead of taking air from the front grille near the fog light ? I'm wondering why ? Is it more friendly with dust and other unwanted objects not to be sucked in the filter ?

I'm wondering if we can add something like these to our Icebox intake ?

Very nice mate, and very informative with pictures , thank you !
I'm not sure I've understood where from will the hot air be sucked from engine bay, without that block-off plate.
By the way is that a custom block-off plate I see in the first picture ?

Oh I see, thanks mate, so J's Racig and Mugen thought it will be a good idea to have a shield block there and an intake duct (very similar design), interesting stuff . I might made one of those, just in case :)

The tough part will be to have an intake duct like the one used in the video by Mugen (step 16) .

Hi ******

Do you recall the aproximate sizes for that heat shield block you have used ?
I have these 2 pices of metal sheets https://www.dropbox.com/s/jkhihsg50nqpnni/IMAG0276.jpg their sizes are 28x20 (cm) and 24x23 (cm) ... I would like to know if any of them will be enough to cover that area, before attempting to remove the front bumper.

Which little thing for the crash sensor?

Do you have the front scoop (intake duct) also?

I need some opinions in cutting the bumper vent (next to the fog light), like @****** did.
But I was thinking to add some metal wire-gauze with the smallest holes possible over those openings, too.

But I'm concern about water mostly ... what do you think , is it safe to drive in bad weather with that open thing down there ? (by the way I have an Icebox) ?

Hi guys,

I've managed to get a Mugen block of heat which I intend to install , but I do not have the parts to hold it in place.
Especially the one marked with yellow in the bellow pictures
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4iw1f5iwpr10jkj/C-PC63qPLX

I still don't understand how exactly is it that "U shape" (if I can call it like that), holds the heat shield in place. I mention the heat shiled does not have any holes there .
Can someone explain me how exactly is it working ?

PS> ****** I've sent you a PM some time ago

Ok but it needs two points to fix it, otherwise it might move and rattle.
Are there any holes disc there as it looks like that piece of "U shape " is holded by two screws?

Can you describe how is it fixed down there and describe that piece that holds it down there, as I is not clear for me from the pictures how exactly is it made... ?

ok I'll try :) but if you can give me some hints please do :)

Did you have to drill anything down there ? Again, do you remember how did you fit that small "U shape" piece down there , it seem to have two screws on it (that's why I've asked about drilling)

Man your words are expensive :)
I just want to be prepared to have everything before attempting to remove the front bumper, I don't want to do it twice.
Can you PLEASE explain how that little piece is made to hold the plate down there.
Do you have to make any holes?
