nite shades. carries some

as far as the ractive intake, the metal tube can kill power when the car is running at normal temps, the tube gets a good bit hotter and warms the air charge which means less dense air. also, which filter is on there? is it the one with the chrome heat shield? if it is u will see a bit more airflow going to an exposed cone filter, the filter inside that chrome shell is tiny! crack it open and look. i had a ractive on my zetec as my first intake, it was OK in the winter but during the hotter days it really got kind of bad
