even if you do notice a slight difference with cone filters, it's not enough to give your car the edge over another car with comprable performance. you should also be prepared to lose some hp in traffic

it does make a sound difference, but more at high RPM's, my friend has an ice cone intake system thing, and it sounds sweet.

If I didnt want to order something off of ebay, where should I go?

nope, I talked to fox and he pretty much told me that all u need is the adapter and the cone, no assembly required! Ebay is the only place to get it at that price i think.

those things are a rip off. Like i said a while back, the only thing you should do with modifying your intake is getting a K&N air filter. You will practically get the same gains as that of the cone filter you are talking about and the sound will be a little louder than stock. The other option is doing a MAF or AFM conversion. Other than those two options, you shouldn't go put your money anywhere else.

But hey, if you want to go for the looks and sound, then by all means go for it. I just dont think that 110 dollars will get u nowhere fast.

IMO, those cone filters don't look good in our engine bays to begin with. They belong more on Hondas and japanese imports.
