I bought a camaro with a volant cold air induction on it, but everyone I see has some type of lid on there car, are these just not popular because they cost like 200 bucks:barf:, or are they no good with out ram air?http://static.zoovy.com/img/stage3motorsports/W640-H480-Bffffff/V/volant_15958c_1998_2002_camaro_installed.jpg

Mix of both. Gains are around the same as a lid generally but they look cool

Thought about cutting the bottom out for more air, like you do in the stock lid
I like mine. I combo'd it with the ultra Z hood. Also I got the 1 for a fire bird, very e z to make it fit. Possibly the only down side. You can really hear it sucking air.

I would say u need the Ultra-Z Hood for the intake to work also.
I have this on my ws6 (on it when I bought it). I can't figure out if it's better than a lid or not. There is VERY little data on it. I'm assuming because it's $300 or you can buy a lid for $100. The general consensus is that it's almost identical from a power stand point to a lid.
If it were me and someone wanted to switch, I probably would take $50 and a lid setup. I like the way the lids look better.

I just sold my 85mm FTP lid and ssra to buy this intake because I wanted to make my ultra z hood functional. Nice looking piece and gains are supposed to be the same. Your buying more pieces hence the price.

I think it all boils down to the $ free air mod plus lid $70 compared to the cost of those set ups but I too like the exposed filter look!!

IMO, there's nothing wrong with them it's just that most people don't want to spend over $100 more then a lid and get the same power gains. I would keep using it since you already have it.
FYI, if you take out some of the Styrofoam behind the two openings in the nose of the car, you can then direct that fresh outside air up towards the air filter.
