in2focus: an intake isnt a big deal, real simple mod u wont need to change fuel, the type of driving u do doesnt matter, the only thing that really does matter is if u live in a wet climate dont get a long tube intake. ivek known two people that had to replace their motors from sucking up water thru a long tube intake. u definately notice a power increase so get it and love it! ice man is a good choice. its the quietest of the intakes.

illini: the volant has a bigger dia tubing than stock, the box is bigger, the filter is wayyyy less restrictive, it has a second runner off the side of the box not dependent on just the snorkel, the box blocks more engine heat, and can be fully functional with a fc ram air hood. it is a big improvement from stock, dyno proven to gain hp and more importantly torque, and once its insatlled u will love the increase in overall performance of the car including sound. my 2 cents, dont get the fc intake, poor build quality! get the volant if ur looking at the 2 of them. it is definately worth the 250... in response to ur second post, the fc isnt better because of the svt snorkel, its not a very signifigant difference, and u can upgrade the svt snorkel to the volant if u want to
