    if the hood closes and doesn't rattle, then you don't need to

    also, you can bend the IC brackets a bit for a better angle/fit

    dont think this will work with the 2011 stock IC, I just went and checked and while I do see kinda what you mean about spacing the rear of it upward at an angle so that more air directly hits it, the IC seems to have black plastic clamps fully around it holding it down, maybe I misunderstood something but it looks like even after taking the bolts out the "clips" so to say fully hold the IC down, how would one get around that?

    here's a picture of it next to my dog. A German Shepherd. WOW!!! It does look like a very solid piece though....bar and plate design looks much sturdier than the OEM one. I put a screen mesh in my scoop to protect the OEM IC, but I think this one would take a bullet and be fine. The whole thing is made of 1/4" Aluminum stock!
    Might i ask what brand and/or what store u bought this I/C from on ebay? i just ordered one from Speed Daddy and its a 4" core bar an plate design. kind of wondering if its gonna be that huge as well...

    I don't understand why this works, amount of air is fixed thru air scoop, angle of TMIC should not have an effect.
