Look into getting a euro box it's around the same price and its a great intake
Teeeg, you must be confusing this intake with the bigger Simota. See the pic below for reference. I guess it's enclosed, or semi-enclosed, but where does it take the air in...? The CBII intake is $120, while the Euro box is ~$800. I'm very familiar with modding our cars/engines, but am unfamiliar with this item new to the market.
