I have done tests that show that a K&N drop in filter with a modifyed ram air unit does more than any other aftermarket filter system does.

Yea, it most certainly does. I just removed my short ram and replaced it with the stock intake and a new K&n and the difference is increadible. Throttle response is much better and top end power also. My car didn't like the short ram for some reason, even with cool temperatures.

...yep. I think it's great. I don't exactly feel a huge differerence, but I'm much happier, knowing that my car breathes much more freely (plus, I went FI).

Oscar Jackson ran some extensive tests for which intake system works best with his blower. SVT Box, snorkle, and K&N came out on top! I am sure the ITG filter works just as good.
