I'll look, but I think that your car is correct. I will post when I get home.

it just seems weird and they didn't put back the scoop that sends air into the airbox from the grilles so im not too confident.

yes you are missing that scoop and ducting-probably would not keep that car and sell it because who knows what other more major work they missed.

Alternatively you totally do not need it as there is more than enough air paths without it and it may actually serve to better cool the engine with air shooting right to engine bay.

ya thanks munit

I know its not essential to operation but i just want to get these guys for everything since they are a really bad shop that tried to steel aftermarket parts from me that were on the car like i wouldn't notice they did not put them back.

I know more about the car than they do its just ridiculous how bad these guys are after they gave me a speech about why it took so long because they wanted to get it back to me in 100% perfect condition. I nailed them on 15 other things at there shop.

The hose is correct, but like everybody said, you are missing the scoop box that connects from your grills to the airbox. Other than that, it looks correct. I would let them know and make sure that they put your car back the way they found it.

Took awhile for me to see it - The picture was a bit close.

But yeah, like others have said, they left off a pretty big piece.
