Thanks, man. I have a tube running from the brake duct to the box.

I really like having the box in place. I may even wrap it to see how it helps my intake temps:

If I ever go with an intake that runs into the front bumper, I'd like to go with the Pipercross (like UUC used to sell).

If anyone wants to send me a Dinan or Cosmos, I'd be happy to bolt it up and go get it tested against mine.

I will say that when I had my custom cold air intake set up (long tube type) I felt a boost in torque as well. They say it's due to the resonance of the tube and intake pulse, and other psychics that are above my pay grade. Great job though, I respect your methods and the information that you provide to the community.
