Or you can rebadge theirs as your own and add 100 bucks to the price!

Hehe yeh, just gouge a big "VIC" in the top of it with my swiss army knife!

I have found today that my local Autobahn store sell an SS Induction snorkel doohickey for the EL for $299. They also sell the appropriate K&N filter for $169.
The claim on the SS Induction packaging is that "you can expect upto 7kW at the rear wheels.." after fitting just that. The bloke behind the counter said that with the K&N air filter, I might get upto 12kW with both installed.
Thing is, I don't have any other manufacturers gear to compare that against.

Yeap, the AU XR8/T- Series snorkle does exactly the same thing for $275 less.

Upto being the key word.

Auger make some HUGE intakes (havent seen the falcon ones yet), cost about 150 but. And i personally think i could improve on their designs.

Do a search, and make your own, save yourself at least $250!

Re: Brand names for CAI

dude dont bother with the brand name inductions. Im havin a full custom CAI set up done on my au (includes crome piping with a pod in a custom made stainless steel box with a 3inch intake pipe). Its costing me around 300bucks all up including labour. I dont have the time to do it myself for all those who think im lazy. I recon go and make up a custom CAI.
