It sounds better and may get you 1 mpg but it puts the air filter out in the open suseptable to water and a lot more dust. So it is probably personal prference. On my old four banger not a good idea.

Mostly a waste. Very little positive for what it's worth.

I like mine.. I put a throttle body spacer on with it. got me 2 more mpg. for the 180 bucks investment its worth it to me seeing how my jeep isn't going anywhere. if you get a good one it has the air cleaner boxed away from the elements.

What is it then that gives it that cool sound then? Is it the filter or is it the thinner walled tube? In all honesty the only reason that i would get one is for the sound.
