I dont like it. Regular intakes are designed, engineered, and built with factors in mind such as intake resonance, cooler air induction, etc. The intake resonance can act just like a header in regards that it scavenges air with the harmonics that it creates. I know its left-field to say this, but think of a 2-strokes air chamber in the exhaust system. The harmonics are what make it so affective. Same goes for intake air.
If it floats your boat...great. But not my bag o' beans
nice. I heard the throttle body spacers are good for paperweights only! i've only heard from one person that they are any good and that was the guy who kept trying and trying to get my to buy one of his.
..I tried that way years ago..altho initially it will help performance because of the higher flow...the heat will hurt it...the pcm will pull timing and other characteristics...that's why the really good cai's route as close to outside air as possible...
