So I searched on here and didn't really find too much on this topic. I also read that adding a filter to one of these supposedly adds a few more HP? For the people that did add this did you notice a difference after 70 MPH? Thanks

Not worth the price in my opinion . You can run over to the hardware store pic up a piece of tin and make one.. For about 10 bucks or so .

I will probably get one of these... well because a fool and his money are soon parted

Realistically, I believe you can see 5HP at speeds of 70mph or above. I don't think you could even measure a performance difference BUT, 5hp should be enough to run the ac. Maybe you can make up 1MPG.
