That makes sense and yeah, thinking about it I can see what you mean about the Newmission not working as expected. What I'm hearing here is that the more versatile approach would be delete, SRI, and maybe a velocity stack to better direct the airflow?
EDIT: I guess that would make sense since that's what most everyone ends up doing, lol.

I think he was wanting it to carry his name, which I would assume his last name is Griffin, but people latched-on to Newmission instead.
I don't see any reason that doing both would be bad, it really wouldn't be any different than doing the snorkel delete with a SRI. It wouldn't exactly work the way you're thinking without some way to block the Newmission opening while in town though.

|diamond_jigsaw||Okay, I get that. Since the Newmission mod (how's that guy feel about having his own mod named after him?) relies on air moving over the entry point, I could see how it would tank city economy. As Jburks said with doing both, is there any downside to doing it that way? I can't imagine so since you would be freeing the restriction for city driving and then the ram air mod would come in to play once at speed. It makes since in theory at least....|

Well, they are still two very different mods which is why they each have separate threads. Generally speaking, the snorkel delete seems to give better fuel economy in town while the Newmission mod seems to give better economy for those that do a lot of highway travel. I tried the Newmission mod on my car with a custom fiberglass scoop but it tanked my fuel mileage so I ended up having to buy another air filter box.
Ymmv, quite literally.

Oh, fair enough! I was thinking that would make sense but most all of the comments I've seen have at least appeared to be an either/or scenario. I guess over the years, the naming convention has just changed to "Snorkel Delete". Thanks!

|Jburks||well people who do the newmission generally do both that and the snorkel delete.|

|diamond_jigsaw||Hi everyone, I'm sure this has been asked before but this is an incredibly long thread so I haven't looked through it's entirety. I was wondering what the difference b/w this and Newmission's home-made ram-air kit is. I've read through that thread and it seems like a very solid theory for increasing power (marginally, w/o tune) and they did have a pretty consistent claim of increased mileage. From what I've read through here, I'm noticing that people feel that it generates more power, but they see a decrease in mileage. Has it simply been decided that the ram air kit maybe wasn't as efficient as this mod for deriving power? With a daily commute of 25 miles, the ram air mod appeals to me for it's increase in mileage that people have reported but it seems that the snorkel delete is now the more commonplace recommendation. Thoughts?|

Wow! It took me a week to read thru this thread! But I finally made it! I want to thank "jburks" sending me the link to this thread. And a thanks to "dyno85" for creating it. And a thank you to all who added useful information to it.
I just bought a new (32 miles) 2014 SE Hatchback DCT, appearance package, etc. I CAN'T WAIT TO REMOVE THAT SNORKEL NOW!!!!! I'm just bummed that the weather is too cold to do it.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to adding more mods. RSB, RMM, Closed drop-in, Exhaust, Tune, and weight reduction.
PS - after what I have read, and seen on youtube- having the DCT scares me... to the point of needing soft, reassuring words!
