Well I was cruising around on the web for yet another intake and look what I come across... Worth $1200? Hell no... I would however like to see what a non carbon fiber unit would cost though... And I think that this is on the right track for something that I am looking for...

Thoughts??

quoted from posted site:
"This is the perfect intake system if you are looking to add style to your engine bay or match your carbon fiber hood!"
Not speculating that it doesnt cause an bump in HP, but thats stupid expensive. It's kind of like those folks that get ARC stuff just for the heck of showing how deep their bank account goes. And the CF intake scoop thing, the OE one is very light already, how much weigh can you save? Probably none that would improve the car's performance. Probably better off vacuuming and removing some coins from the car.

yeah I still think this thing is a ripoff. even Subaru says the CAI is useless on the 08 -- it gives you maybe 1 hp if you tune it right.

if this motor truelly is the same or very similar to the LGT motor, there are gains to be had with a CAI. However, over at LGT, there is a dislike for the SPT intake.
