Anyone interested in a cold air for N/A? Perhaps S40 too. <p>I have a shop in CT eternal power who said he would do it, but it wouldn't be worth it to build one. <p>Let me know interest or thoughts.

If you really wanted a cold air intake you could just make one yourself with a cone filter. It wouldn't really be worth it for you to buy one since it wouldn't really improve performance, it would only make a cool sound.

Yea like cmurph said, you can just put a cone air filter on the MAF, this would technically only be a "short ram intake" setup, but again it wont really give you any performance gains. Also you can check out my thread on the custom intake I made... <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117151" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117151</A><br>and here is a semi-update photo of it, but I changed the insulation strip on the top to black foam instead of the greyish.<br><IMG SRC="http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/ww49/bpray9223_photos/110_0395.jpg" BORDER="0">

i know they has been debated, but just want to point out one point. the s60 with a short ram WILL produce more HP than the stock, but only minimal, not the 10 they claim, more like 4-7 range.<p>it has been on a dyno, and had a control reading first with stock setup. mainly because of the colder air to the turbo those, in an NA i bet no diff.
