    vitviper has said that the prl intake is the only one that has shown any gains over stock after tuning

    lol yeah bro. Aside from the PRL, everything else pretty much just makes a really nice noise.
    There was a thead that Vit posted that shows intakes other than PRL loosing power over stock or staying relatively close to stock.

    Does the PRL CAI also sounds nice? When I had my Injen CAI the Vtec crossover war really loud and sex in my ears. On the first day when I installed my CAI my mileage dropped to 20 mpg.:driving:

    That's one interpretation of what I said... Webby quoted exactly what I said:

    "only intake I have seen to date that gained power is the PRL". To be fair to Skunk, I have not personally tested their intake on a car, so I can't say one way or another about it, but the typical 'hit the market first' intakes like Takeda, K&N, Injen, etc, are not very good.

    Hell the PRL only got us 4 hp... I can't imagine any intake making power on this car. The power is had with the exhaust side and a tune.

    Hmm...interesting. The reason I say is because before my skunk 2 cai I would get beat by this turbo charged Saab constantly lol and after the install I pull a car and half on him everytime lol so there has to be some gain

    You beat a turbo just by adding the Skunk2 CAI? Or you got exhaust and FP with tune?

    It's a stock turbo Saab but whenever he pulls you can hear that turbo spool. Sounds sick.
