New air intake.....

Hey guys/gals:
Is it really worth the money to get the newer upgraded air intake with the single pipe with a cone airfilter as oppose to the boxy MB stock one?
thanks

Not if you're going to suck in hot engine bay air.......

The cooler the intake air the better the engine likes it. Often even with a low restriction air filter you end up with an overall loss because the intake charge is less dense due to warmer intake air.
