    Cold air intake alternatives

    Hey guys, just need some help, I just fitted a new 56mm Adrad radiator into my vz Clubby. But now because the A/C condenser sits further forward my Duspeed OTR CAI wont fit now. So any suggestion on an alternative that actually fits with this size radiator would be awesome :)

    just experimenting with the air intake on a vy commodore. would this setup work to my advantage? ive seen this on another car before. ive cut the bottom of the snorkel to let air in through the grill and into the air intake rather than trying to cram it all under the closed hood.
