That is a AU intake, as it is squareish.

Not sure if it is the XR one or not though.

Yes it makes it a little more snappy but dont expect to much. You wont get a much cheaper price than what he's advertising for aswell, i got mine for $33 from some wholesaler.

Also change filter to high flow & it has made a bit of difference to response!
