drop in k&n will give you the same "power" increase. The cone filter will sound alot cooler i think. it makes the turbo loud!

There were no gains on a +400hp Viggen so I would not bother.
The stock paper unit in the stock air box (or maybe with a 3" inlet) is more than capable of handling the power of a stage 4.

On the other hand there are a lot of people here whos accurate butt dynos have measured exactly a 2hp increase when using an open air filter so maybe it's worth it :lol:

Now, if vigge would just put the part about stock headers being good for 400 horsepower in his signature, we could have an anti-fun wet blanket party!

:)


I did not see any gains from my GS intake, but it did sound great, I'm not gonna lie.

just for you, a MAF with screen and without test is comming up as the weather allows after which I can add that results to my signature as well. Delipipe is also under works to study the "myths" behind it.:cheesy:
But as a side not is this anti-fun or for pro-fun when people dont waste money on no-go parts and put them to parts which give the wanted go?;)

The gains will be very minimal, dont expect a big power increase. I have the GS intake but I've modified the set up a bit as well to keep heat out of it. I like the sound, the look, and the fact that I know my engine has less trouble getting air through it. Is it worth the $130 something? Thats something you need to ask yourself.
