Good luck man... At the end of the day, it's 2 pieces of metal used to direct more air into the intake
Hope the fitment is fine. It was a b***h to install the RPi...

Just received the air scoops yesterday, it was quick...
Installed yesterday night, the fitment was perfect, just drop it in, there are hangers at 3 edges.

Hahahaha... got it... C hing. "Ching" is close to a derogatory term so I just wanted to clarify...

I didn't feel any significant gains after I installed the scoops but I wasn't expecting any huge changes to begin with.

As you have seen while installing it, the purpose of the scoops are to channel more air into the intake, thus promoting better airflow into the engine. Will it give huge gains? Maybe not but I do feel my mid range is a lot better, smoother after installing them.

If anything, it looks the part!

I got a pair from cyba - Mainly for better outlook. I cannot really feel any performance gain (maybe too little). However at price USD41 + shipped it can't go wrong.

I don't think there's any concrete evidence the scoops will increase power. But like I said before, it sure looks the business if anything.
