not worth the $$ IMO either

get a Bluepower or G&D airbox if you are really serious, otherwise just cut a hole in the front of your stock airbox...you've just saved yourself $275 :P

LOL cut a hole in the front of the airbox to pickup engine bay heated air, man that would have to be a performance increase :P

I got 1 a couple of months ago and I must say they could be cheaper for what they are but I'm happy with it. I've noticed better throttle response and a signifigant fuel saving, about 30 - 40 k's per tank. :?: I hpoe this helps.

Don't know how it'l work but i'm toying with the idea of cutting a hole in the front of the air box of my ef and covering the gap on the side between the box and the engine side so that extra air can be drawn from behind the light assembly without extra heat from the engine.

Just get the tickford snorkel and also at the front of the air box drill a hole so it can suck air from behind the headlight and run some PVC pipe. Like the typhoon one just cheaper.
