Do you mean a drop-in replacement filter for your airbox? <p>You call it the "EVOLVE turbo intake" so I just want to make sure you understand that it's not an entire intake, it replaces the tube that connects the factory airbox to the turbo. The first picture at the bottom shows it best: <A HREF="http://www.evolvecars.com/site/index.php?id=220,663,0,0,1,0" TARGET="_blank">http://www.evolvecars.com/site...0,1,0</A>

Dude, if you went the way of the Evolve Pipe, keep the stock box. You'll need to deal with mounting the ECU and whatnot if you go for a cone filter, and the only thing you'll get is a different sound. I talked to Don (owner of Evolve) personally when I was at the shop and he assured me that the stock air box flows well enough to support any modifications we make. You can go to Eurosport Tuning if you don't want a K&N, but I'd recommend one of those two. Here are the links:<p>Eurosport Tuning high flow filter:<p><A HREF="http://www.eurosporttuning.ca/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=EST02&Product_Code=VLE-150-101&Category_Code=VL-S40-V50-en" TARGET="_blank">http://www.eurosporttuning.ca/...50-en</A><p>K&N drop in high flow filter:<p><A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com/version.asp?strPageHistory=category&numSearchStartRecord=0&strParents=135,439&P_ID=1105&CAT_ID=439&V_ID=10049" TARGET="_blank">http://www.ipdusa.com/version....10049</A><p>Either way, you should be happy.
