Had to hack the heat shield
This was my wife's 09 G8 GT's first mod. The intake itself is nice. Performs like you would expect. Louder engine tone and pulls stronger. The problem is the heat shield wouldn't fit properly. It caused the hood to bulge. I had to cut the heat shield to get it to fit. I kind of hacked it up a little because where I first thought the problem spot was, wasn't it. I decided to just trim along the top. You can put the rubber back on and not notice it to much.
