You may be overthinking this. Eldon is perfectly correct.
I have this intake; it sounds really good.
Trust the Force, and Phil.
Of course I trust Phil and I like what he is doing. I know BOE are the only way to go.
Since 2015 I wanted their Torque300 tune and I finally had the monney to go ahead and place my order a couple weeks ago.
I'm now wondering if I should spend another 460$ intake over my already 1300$ order but only if required.
It is just not clear if a bigger 3'' intake is needed for cars under a certains amount of power.
They have tune for Stock or Cup airbox and their ITG Kit.
Myself what I understand if I read between the lines of the power receipe is that the intake of the exige do not necessary need to be changed for car under 275WHP. Why paying to change something if I wont get any noticable benefit out of it for my own usage.
Here are some text of the power receipe :
For the Exige that are making best power it will max out the stock MAF housing found in those two air boxes. While this modification will not typically add a lot of power, it does make the throttle and power delivery smoother and safer on the bigger horsepower cars (275+ wheel horsepower).
My goal is to be around 265-275whp ; so very close to that critical point.
I am not planning in a near future to add a 1800$ headers, a fuel pump ( to much pain to install ) or a 850$ surge tank ( easier to install but much more expensive) to reach the final step toward 290-300WHP level.
