They look quite good, have a read of one of the questions asked, there is a reply about how the airbox is made and works.
If these are a good air intake/box? they are a lot cheaper then performance shops charge.

for 240...i don't think it's even worth. Do a custom 2nd intake and it just might do the same effect.

phong =P~

lol, Why yessss I do have a performace air box made specifically for the Ford Falcon. Just let me find it, this pocket is quite large you know ;) :roll:

Bet it was someone on FM that asked that Q.

$240 could be better spend elsewhere IMO. But I'm sure that they would be better then any CAI except for 1 or 2, that Fairmont with the grill scoop comes to mind, might be FordFairmont's?

Yay for Ford.

I don't get what you 2 are on about.
Yes $240 is a fair bit but other places charge around double for similar things for BA's etc.
Do you think it would work well though? Intake is pretty much the only thing standard on my car.

You are better to modify the one you've got yourself... its cheaper.
If your willing to spend $240 then im sure it would do a good job. 1-3KW difference... is it worth it??

Says you dont need the Original Snorkle........ hmmmmmmm

SS inductions sell the Big Mouth which is nearly $300 or something and Aunger Sell One the same for $200 IIRC

Quote:
Thanks for your positive thoughts! The Air Box is made big enough to allow extra air flow & a larger filter to fit inside the air box. It is fully open behind the head light to collect air coming around the head light & through the grill, which has found to be very efficent for air flow & better fuel economy & extra power gain. It can have the original snorkel as well, but we have found there is no need for it. It will fit a large POD filter - 3.5 inch or 3 inch outlet whatever you prefer. The cost is high because of the development involved, laser cutting, dye making etc Cheers, Brian


I have seen E-Series Guys remove the HeadLight to get more Air Flow in at the Drags - This Air Box Suits that application very well
