Its almost common sense, the DCI are hidden and tucked into a hot engine bay with no ambient air coming to them... Even before IAt testing of any sort, bringing and forcing ambient air (cooler air) into the DCI area, and more air in general is only gonna help.

Using my in dash IAT via JB4, my IATs are def staying cooler esp on the highway! So there def doing there job...

Around town i def dont feel any increase in power, on the highway they feel nice, and its nice knowing my intakes are getting more and cooler air, and the IAT's are staying a bit cooler. Its around 40* at night around my area, when i put my hand on the engine the heat aroudn there is 100*F+ easily, so when that 40*F is hitting the DCI its so much better

Any problems with small debris or water from having the car washed?

Nope non, i have driven in heavy rain and nothing even gets in the snorkel.. The slits in the back end of the scoops, drop off the heavy stuff like water and debri.

Question How do I order the Cyba air scoops?

I assumed I just have to transfer $41 from my paypal account to the one they provide ( sales@dvisionwerks.com). I just don't want to send my money and never get anything.

Thanks

Sorry to bump a 2 year old thread, but the OP said he made a hanger type bracket to keep the stock snorkel pointed at the DCI, however, since the thread is 2 years old, his pictures no longer work. I was wondering if anyone else has made some sort of bracket to redirect the stock snorkel. I was looking in my engine bay the other day and I (like the OP) noticed that my stock snorkel points at the engine, instead of the DCI filters. So I searched for a solution on here, but this is the only thread that came up. Hence the 2 year bump. Anyone make a bracket to point the snorkel more towards the DCI filters instead of the engine itself?
