i think it would restrict your air flow , and considering the design i would mount it facing toward the back of the bike



put these topics together please post only in one spot

maybe drill a few more holes on the side that would face the engine , but no matter what you do with that slit opening it will change the air flow pattern and not for the good

Maybe if like Wrecker said you installed it towards the rear of the bike, you could remove the entire "face" on the side facing the bike, allowing it to function similar to a normal Filter.

Goal here is not only to get more air but to get cold air. Suckling up a bunch of hot air from near the engine reduces your HP quite a lot.
