nice, i would try to trim down whatever is in the way of the air duct, but cold air intake are good as well. I wanted to go with an afe dry air filter with the stock box, and use the aftermarket air scoop they sell for the air scoop.

right now i am running without the scoop, taking air intake into the air filter box without it. i am still thinking about whether to do a cold air intake instead of the filter box or maybe fix/cut the scoop to fit the higher fan.

you can avoid this issue by getting the Z4 fan which is the proper height.
