What sort of car is it going on. On most e-series falcons, all you need to do is use a K&N high flow panel air filter and a EL XR8 or AU XR8 snorkle available from ford for about $30.

My Eb has the cold air snorkle, I just have to get the K&N panel air filter. Did you find much of a difference?

The air filter seemed to allow it to rev a bit quicker. I think a realistic gain would only be 1-2kw, but it is much better for your engine, and it will last forever.
