    So it cracks me up whenever I see a cone filter stuck on the end of the MAF in the engine compartment of a Fox. That would be a HAI (Hot Air Intake.) Looks cool. But why do people want their engines to ingest air that could easily be 50-100 degrees warmer than when it is being pulled from the fenderwell? Discuss.

    I have a stock airbox, with the silencer removed and a K&N panel filter. All i've ever needed.

    Ohhhh, the butthurt you can produce with this one. Dyno-racers never think about real world conditions, they only think of the 0.25 hp they get

    ....with the hood open and a 15,000 CFM fan blowing on the engine bay.

    I have a hard time believing the chrome costs more power than heat absorbing, turbulence causing, bellowed, black rubber and plastic. :)
    And chrome looks nicer with a polished intake.
