Still uses the factory snorkel. I'm sure the gain is the filter itself again. Second company to half way address the tubing to the turbo. The portion that's most restrictive is left alone.

See through... does that mean it's actually open to the engine compartment? Wonder how well that works in a blinding snow storm... would the filter pack full of snow? I worked with a fella that had that issue with an exposed filter element. He was near the Eisenhower Tunnel on I-70 and it was below zero.

And on the reverse side of that equation.... doesn't that also mean it's pulling hot engine bay heat into the filter when it's not freezing cold outside?

I doubt it’s open to the engine bay, likely clear plexi/plasti to allow you to view the filter

Agreed....I would love to see a real intake from turbo to filter with smooth transitional bends. I might have to wind up making my own to see power difference.

I agree with the above, doesn’t look like it addresses the more restrictive parts, but I would be lying if I said I still didn’t want it!

I keep asking companies to make just a replacement tube from the air box to the turbo. Then I'll wait for the Velossatech intake tube combined with a drop in filter.

I think it has to do with emissions altercations and they won’t touch it. Last time I looked it had some pressure venting tubes on that part of the intake.

I met with Velossatech Tuesday and they did the scanning to start the prototype piece. Can't wait to see it done.

Look at the tubes. Even the top one the 2 places that make them have fittings for tubes to plug in.

Awesome. I'm glad I brought this up to them and they see the market for it.
