Whats the general consensus with the MACE CAI setup. From the pictures I've seen it seems like the airflow is restricted to only behind the headlight. What's peoples experience with it? Is it worth the $220?

Ino SircruzealotVS has one in his raptor blown vs, he was sayin he got a nice difference with his one, i would check over his posts to find the thread he was talkin about it in.

It sucks cold air in thru the headlight, no hot air from the bay can get in there, soo lower intake temp, more power, would be very benifecial for a SC car, but on a N/A i couldnt see it doin that much difference compared against a standard VS SC CAI

i think its an additional $40 for a lid on top also lol. it looks good but at the price its a hard decision over a $20 diy one with .6mm sheet metal and some pvc :p

i think that additional $40 is for a clear lid not just a lid, otherwise you get a black one

If you can make it yourself go for it, but i've heard positive reviews from someone who used it on an L67 (Supercharged V6)

Yeah the actual intake is what concerns me since there's no actual easy path for the air other than whatever air leaves the headlight. I guess as long as the air is cold in that region it's ok since there's a pod sucking it all in and it's a forced induction setup. I'm just not sure if it's worth the bucks.

Yeah, I'm seriously considering it since I'd like to get that louder whine. I'll probably also get the 10psi pulley, should be enough whine with the pod that comes with it.

The pod should be pretty loud. I am using the Yella Terra CAI (Big fat pipe) with a 10psi pulley and it whines much louder.
