this mod with the bigger xh snorkel i have being very impressed ,it has helped with fuel usage seems to rev harder & quicker, also very smooth and effortless performance,i think i have picked up rwkw not many maybe 5/9 rwkw also i :D had disconnected battery to reset ecu , the eb took a while to adjust to this mod , but now all apples . u can really feel the intake sucking seems to like lots of air flow to it to wrap up this mod i ll give it a 10/10 :twisted:

now that you say something about it and i found that the grill looks wrong bent up a bit on the bottom ,not sitting flat . and as goes the rubber. my rubber starts and stops :wink: where it fits as if it was made 4 it from factory :idea:

well i went down to dyno day 4, to test the cold air intake, so stripped all the mods which where easy to remove :( so i had basic stock car except exhust system.i picked up about 6 rwkw funny i thought that ,even when they opened up the air box to improve air flow bypassings my xh snorkel the rwkw dropped about 5 rwkw where everybody else increased about 6 rwkw ,so my finding is that the way i set it up is spot on.now time for the next mod . :D
