I haven't made the jump yet. Been looking at the Violant but really wondering what makes spending the big bucks for any aftermarket intake worthwhile. They all draw air from the same place as the stock system which is in fact a cold-air intake it would seem. True, you might realize a bit of a hp gain with an aftermarket less restrictive filter and possibly some from a smooth intake runner instead of the stock item but it would seem that the little hp gain doesn't really justify the bucks so what's it all about, the cool look? The louder intake sound? Not putting anyone down here and not looking for somebody to justify their chosen unit as opposed to some other brand, just looking for facts. Have I overlooked something here?
