Hi guys, iv posted a video on my YouTube channel "ICE Mach 1" showing how you can make a lid for your air box including using ram air from the front of the car like the S650 has. 👍🏼

I liked the video and it got me to thinking about the out-of-place looking "fog light pods". Maybe by replacing those pod plates with honeycomb screen material (you choose the color), the pods would look more functional than an afterthought.

Hi, I agree with you about the "air vent / fog light pods" they are not one thing or the other. As Ford never pre installed mounting points or wiring for fog lights we have to assume that once the back plates are removed they can only be for air flow. As the air box intake is directly behind one of them I don't know why Ford did not just make them with grille mesh so they would be functional? Thanks for watching my video

Someone definitely needs to sell a mesh replacement for the drivers fake fog light backing. I didn't realize it just popped out like that.

I did this for track days only. For looks only. I do like the screen or mesh idea.

Does anyone know the part number for those removable air intake covers in the front grille?

I do not think you can purchase them separately from the main grill.

Based on what I saw in the video, I was thinking one could use the current "foglight" coverplate as a template and purchase some of this material , using the coverplate as a template.

Of course that may be a little simplistic, but there are a lot of creative folks who will come up with something and I'm guessing in the next 3 months will post their build on this forum.

Have you seen any instances where the clear cover might become unseated due to the positive pressure created by the now unobstructed ram air entering the air box? Based on the apparent separation between the seal and the inside of the hood (bonnet) it seems likely…
