Only worth getting if you like the sound of intakes, other than that any engine mod to our NA cars seem kind of useless which is why i'm not modding anything in my engine

don't think so~the cost would be not worth for the power you gain from intake~

Yes, if you are after the sound.
No, if you are aiming for power.

But acceleration does feel smoother, but I think it just me. I have the simota v2. I did wrote a review for it and there are sound clips.

Well I have a Fujita and I love the sound of it, I put a k&n filter on it, and idk people bash of Fujita and all that shit but I never had a problem with it. But how much power are you losing with the intake? Like if its like a little bit I could honestly not care cause I'm just trying to make my car look nicer in the end.

Open intakes sound the best but at the same time loses power due to sucking in engine bay heat.
However, it's not that much and normal people may not even notice it unless they put the car on dyno or doing drag races.
In the end, it's all about the sound and the look if you are not into performance.
