For $150 a year it better be pretty cool.

I love it, plus from the info Im getting with that model I will hopefully determine the best intake design. So far 4" is doing well, but I think a smaller tube might actually perform slightly better.

I know they're worthless, but I'm curious to see your "official" results.
