ive tried a typhoon with K&N, pod filter (enclosed and not enclosed), and growler in that order. ive now gone back to the typhoon with K&N. ive found theirs no difference between them when the only other significant mod on the car is exhaust, if your car was a V8, turbo/supercharged, or had significant head work; id imagine a growler would give a difference.
reason why i went back to typhoon was i didn't like the BURR of the growler (THEIR BLOODY LOUD :lol: ) as it was drowning out my beautiful exhaust note!!! and being on my P's a engine bay that looks closer to stock is ideal if the cops pull you over, not that ive been pulled over and asked to open the bonnet.

I do have a 3" Mild Steel intake pipe, I guess that changes the note a fair bite.
