Sound is objective, some like it and some don't. I am in the latter category, though I don't have anything against the former. Sounded awesome at wot but i xan't drive like that everywhere
That being said, the main drawback is that the filter is exposed to engine-bay heat. Thia can lead to heat soak in stop-and-go driving, which will make the car sluggish. I am curious as to how well it would perform for someone who has 90% highway commute, though, because warm air burns more readily than cold which would theoretically lead to better mpg's in that state.
