That's what i heard.

Maybe lower boost, that's why ?
If true, then maybe this is why Shiv designed v3 Stage 1 map to increase boost and compensate for this potential boost reduction? I wish Shiv would chime in on all this. He sells his own "dual cone intake" for $195 and it too sits on top with just the oem stock intake snorkel just hanging in front of the Vishnu dual cone filters. It is a very similar setup as the aFe intake, except with no heat shield.

Shiv...please advise. Thanks.
