    Whats the best way to cut the fake vents on the front bumper?

    I installed a PRL cold air intake on Monday and I noticed that there isn't really any openings near the driver side fender for air to come in. I know some people take out the fog light but I was thinking cutting the fake vents would be better.

    Dremel probably. Seems like a bad idea though. Makes it easier for the filter to get wet I would think.

    Yeah you can dremel or drill out the holes. Removed the fog light and cover together and youll be able to see what holes you can open up without effecting the fog loght but like tenzen said easier to get wet so be careful

    I was only going to cut a couple of holes not the whole thing. I don’t know if it will do anything, it just seems like there isn’t really any air flow near the fender where my intake is.
