    Can't help thinking that your going to suffer from heat soak from the engine.

    an intercooler will cope with some heat dispertion but if the charge is hot to start with then it will have more work to do. TBH with a set up like this and an air box will perform better (i know the sound is very adictive as i have been there) but will draw in cooler air from the off and will perform better.

    i loved the sound of my induction kit but got the ump with it after a while... horses for courses here i think. if you want to have a nice induction sound then this set up is great. if you want power on the road then i'd say a diesel airbox and performance filter all the way. you will still get induction sounds but just not as loud.

    i did a test on this and they both performed the same tbh

    i was worried about heat soak etc .... when i 1st put this on so i had a drive around got the car upto temperature then sat in my drive to see if the temp went higher (was around 20celsius outside) and didn't move .

    and the exact same with the airbox, also definatly no noticable difference in performance either so im happy

    Just done the 2.2 air box mod on mine with the Vec C scoop and can tell the difference, I bet your's sound really nice now!!

    Couldn't you have done away with the bottom of the box and put a stright piece on for the filter or a 45 degree then taken some ducting to it to feed it better?? Even if the ducting feeds to the side of the filter it'll be better than it is now...

    Also without the 90 degree bend it'll sound even louder

    I put a K&N cone onto my 2.6 V6 Vectra when I had it and just had 2" of straight silicone pipe from the MAF and it sounded like an Impreze on open throttle, the less bends the louder....
