Save your money.

What is it supposed to do? If it is one of those electric fans, it's a big pile of steaming bullshit. As far as I'm concerned, anything in the intake, other than a supercharger or turbo, is going to restrict air flow and decrease power.

bottom line is they are gonna take $75 bucks of your hard earned green and you'll have nothing but a goofy looking paper weight to play with. save your money for something that will make a difference. its basically the same as a throttle body spacer...........big waste of $$$$!!!
