I bought them on a whim after going back to the stock air box. I don't notice any difference, but I like the idea of cold air going into the system.

The other night after driving the car for about an hour, popped the hood and touched a few areas near the dci, it was almost cold as the fender and front bumper. Then i touched the other side to see the difference, and I wasnt surprised at all when the other side was hot. I would say about 20 deg difference. Could be more, could be less.
Any more info on this?

First time I hear about it, but it sounds great and something I NEED!

there are 2 brake ducts which direct air to the front brakes, each brake duct has two plastic pieces locked together by tabs and 1 or 2 screws, basically i took the right piece on the driver side out, now with it out air flows to both brake and engine bay but more toward the dci, i think it helps cool down the engine bay a lil with cool/cold (depends on outside temp) air circulating
