Re: Carbon Intake System
I have one of these in my car. There is definitely some improvement, but I think it is more in throttle response than anything else. There is virtually no difference in sound.
However I was very disappointed in the quality of the product. After a year both the open ends of the pipe lost shape and did not seat properly into the throttle body or the airbox. Due to the resulting "leakage" of air, especially around the throttle body, my car was running very lean. I had to fabricate two steel cylinders from sheet metal (open at each end) which I slipped inside the ends of the pipe to ensure proper seating.
With the benefit of hindsight I would not pay the small fortune that Jano is asking for this product.
Hope that helps.
