It's absurdly expensive and will not offer any real gains compared to AFE's intake.

So I would not hold your breath.

True. I'd rather to get intake, downpipe and jb1 for real gains.

They do get credit for bling. Has anybody isolated an intake on the dyno yet? I know that it's nearly impossible to replicate road conditions for an intake on the dyno, but it would give us an idea about potential restrictions at the airbox. Maybe I'll play with that.

Evolution Racewerks is the way to go! Affordable, simple, and big change in sound. They're finally officially released the product too -> http://evolutionracewerks.com/node/222

aFe also looks to have a nice intake system available as well.
