Barry Batten Cold Intake Kit

Any comments regarding the BB kit - is it worth the money (ie any extra kw or just the sound, or should I just go for the larger T snorkel) and more importantly can it be istalled WITHOUT using an oil based filter (BMC/K&N) - I have read too many negatives about these filtes on overseas forums

Re: Barry Batten Cold Intake Kit

I have one on my XR8 and noticed a good gain in power as well as a better exhaust note. It can be used with the standard filter but adding a high flow filter will improve the performance.
