The stock box/filter isn't measurably restrictive. Even with the turbo maxed out, running full bolt-on mods at 360whp. All you would be doing is sucking in hot air which is the last thing you want to do in this application.

Just my 2c,
shiv

so ur say'n that add'n an intake to the N55 doesn't make
sense with a tune.
ur call'n 360whp the max that the N55 has to give.
so more air is not gonna matter.

when are u gonna have the MAF tune'd for the N55?
