Hey guys.
I'm looking on the net for a Growler Cold Air Induction for my ute and i got onto the SSinductions website and they have them for $600. Has anyone gotten one? Are they worth looking into? Any answers will be muchly appreciated.
Cheers boys.

$600 is way too pricey, as mentioned above you can get one off ebay for $250 and MACE Engineering also make one, find it at maceengineering.com.au, i just checked the site and they sell for $270

You will not notice any power gains really, SSInductions CAI states 11kw increase where MACE says 5kw, either way it's jack #### and unnoticeable if it's the only engine mod you've got.
if you're after purely performance i'd be investing in something bigger, but it does have a nice roar at high revs

Ok, sweet as.
I already have a 2.5" system with pacemaker extractors, it already sounds nice but will the growler make it sound deeper? I don't want the growler to make it sound bad, that's all.

I bought one new, paid the $600 for it. Nice induction sound, however I found it actually made the car sluggish mid-range over the past year of having it.....

I believe you need to make tuning changes to the MAF calibration take full advantage of it.

Worth the money for the sound, but I doubt it adds any performance, maybe up top if anything and a minor improvement for throttle response......

Two hole mod is cheaper, just doesn't give you the induction sound.

$600 for sound??

Drill some holes in the air box and get the same thing.
Its borderline scam.

I got the SS Growler, I did find it was abit quicker (not breakneck speeds). It has quite a nice growl at higher revs and as a few have said a squeel around the 2000 mark...
