Why not, anything to help breath better. It's noticeable the improvement. I have also upgrade the injectors

Nothing wrong with them.

Been running one for years and never had an issue.

Loads of BS and myth about paper element vs K&N vs Foam etc. Bottom line is, too many idiots who don't know how to follow manufacturers instructions for cleaning and applying spray, and too-frequent / infrequent applications or too much.

Induction noise is a bonus.

Like the stripped cam cover. No doubt you've experienced the For King and country black crap like everyone else.

I went the mod-route and non-standard colouring. Lots of hate from the originality police. :bom: :violent3:

I have a spare one so I don't give a rats left testicle what others believe 'should' be on there. :occasion5:

The argument for preservation is often met by the excessive price gouging on 16v-specific parts.

last time I checked it was over $1300 for a replacement cam cover.
