Rotofab intake installed today!!!!!

I installed my Rotofab intake from Apex today, so far I haven't noticed a difference in power but the noise it produces is amazing!!! It sounds so much more aggressive now! I've had permagrin all day!

The noise comes from the engine bay I think its just the filter sucking air it sounds much louder then it used to.

The TB would be a good next mod, as far as installing the scoop and washer bottle they aren't hard to install at all.....
