That appears to be a very nice setup with the possible exception that the tubing is the same accordian style as stock. By virtue of not having the downturn that a FWI uses, I would think it would be less restrictive than a FWI(no flaming please). However, rather than stating that it "should be good for 10-15 hp", they should do a comparison on a dyno where the only variable is the intake. That way, they can make a fact based claim.

Is it safe to assume that the 2000+ is because of the heat shield? Would it work on the 92+'*?

Probably too short for the series 1s, the bays in s2 cars are more cramped. If you are looking for an intake solution, go with a FWI, super easy on a s1.

Nothing is less restrictive than a properly built FWI.

I like my Thrasher CAI a lot. To each his own, and everyone will debate FWI vs. CAI and IAT temp differences down to the degree, but this thing is effective enough to make a nice difference.
