from what everyone has said, the minimal difference in performance between the 2 is not justified by the huge price difference - i paid $22 for my intake from lynford, yet SS inductions are over $200 i think...

it just replaces the existing one! you'll see when you pull it off - it fits over the hole in the airbox

Try trimming it back too, makes it sit nicer and look better, and easier to drill, just cut a few mm of with a pair of tinsnips, thats all i used and it came up great
