my dads got one on his AU. Definatly does make a difference. The whole pipe is bigger, not just the mouth.

Only people who don't have them say thay are s**t. For $280 thay are expensive. People mainly go for ELGT ones and the like becuase thay are better value at only $40

get one :)

lol he speaks some truth.. but what i think his the difference between and el gt snorkel and the ss inductions, is very minor power gain.. But a heap more cost... so i dont think the price is real justified unless u need that extra air intake, cos maybe u have alot of mods etc..

i agree with you 100% it is hard to justify the extra cost of the SS for 3 kw, but he is looking for as much power as he can get. Which is why i think he should get the SS

a friend of mine recently fitted one to his BA, at first he said there was no difference but after a few hunderd K's he says it revs smoother up top (manual XR6) and has more torque and is very happy with it now. A fair bit of $$$ but he's happy and likes the look of it also.

I have one and love it.
I think every car will repond a little differently. I saw my economy increase slightly and have better response. I think it was worth it, but everyone has there own opinion.

if what you say is true about the improved economy, then eventually its going to pay for itself.

for less than $280 though you could probably make you own air intake pipe leading from the bottom brake vent in your bumper up the the air box. ive seen a few others that have done this, they also claim noticeable improvements.
