Hey Adam, glad to hear that you are enjoying your product! Looks great BTW!
I really want to try it, but I am afraid I will hate the noise or feel just as much power with my current intake mod. What is your return policy like?

their air filter is bigger, so it should offer more than your mod by itself, but your mod should make better numbers than their intake and stock inlets

Bigger yes, but not by much IMO. The stock filter has a larger diameter (by about 1 CM) and the length is within the same variance. The S&B filter, the one on the Steeda kit, has a taper away from the MAF housing as well as an opening on the opposite side with a conical inlet. With guestimation from this you gain AT MOST 4 IN^2 of filter surface area.

I am thinking of adding he new mission mod to mine. Wish here was dyno around here...

Truly the best thing about the Steeda kit is the MAF housing. Without it, it may not make much difference over others or some stock air intake mods, but a good tuner could take advantage of its design to get power no one else can. I am sure Steeda had this in mind when they decided to use this design. They do have the advantage of a technology exchange with Ford.
