i think its going to be a similar sound and performance upgrade as taking the lid off your stock air box and a high flow filter.

im sure the same crowd that chimes in on the taking your lid off your air box will ruin your MAF sensor will be chiming in here anytime...
just a side note ive been running my air box without the lid for a couple weeks now rain and snow, i drive about 70km a day (43 miles for you american types) and have had no issues on check engine lights, im getting around the same mileage as i was before.

Right there with ya, I drove with the airbox lid removed for a long time, logged a couple thousand miles that way, just pop on a K&N and it worked good. But now with Intakes coming out , such as Steeda's, Injen, and soon the Fswerks we have better options. But they may not be as cheap lol

It retains the factory "ram air". The ram air piece is under the bumper behind the grill. I can't wait to get one of these. I'm going to wait till SCT comes out with their tuner.

i realize its shielding the heat but is it not still sucking air from all over the engine bay since there is minimal air coming in through the front to feed it.
redfox if you are able to ask them to explain how this design is getting its air that would be much appreciated.

It utilize's the stock intake tubes coming from the front of the car. Ford did a very good design with getting cole air to the stock air box, steeda keeps that with this intake.
