Yes from behind the headlight, below the bumper and there is a "duct" that comes from the kidney grills.

Haha yeah this reminds me of the person who told me to wrap it with heat reflective tape and that I shouldn't of painted it black.
It's just a heatsheild, it has a rather simple job and if I had made it go all the way to the rad support, it wouldn't make a difference. .01 hp maybe?
Not even my $350 Active intake goes that far. I think the reason is to keep the air flowing through the kidneys like it's designed from the factory.
Plus, when you're actually driving, there is a MASSIVE amount a fresh cold air blowing through the front end right in there.
