I've been running the intermediate tube (between the airbox & turbo elbows) without the internal baffles but it doesn't seem like a very elegant way to do it. I'm wondering about the Airaid replacement
or the DPP Cool Hose
. I can appreciate the smooth air flow of the 'Cool Hose' but using the Airaid would keep the guide vanes in the stock turbo elbow.
I'm kinda leaning to the Airaid to keep my system looking somewhat stock (I still have a warranty if that means anything anymore) plus it's a little less $$$. I'd rather not fashion a 'Willies Whistler' at this time.
I'm otherwise happy with the Amsoil air filter in the stock box so I don't wanna replace the whole system but I'd be interested to know people's thoughts about the tube. TIA.
