You guys are going to drop $600 on 1/2 an air cleaner the maybe maxes at 10 advertised horsepower & don't even read the instructions?
Only need to drill (into the plastic lower filter box) when equipped with the "snow valve." My car doesn't have this.
Snow valve? Can you explain? I was going to do this myself, but if there's drilling then I'll have to rethink. I took my intake apart with the instructions prior to ordering and missed this!
