Weber air cleaner adapter

Just installed a new Weber over the weekend and bought the optional adapter that allows you to use the stock air cleaner assembly for cold air intake (bought it all from Carbs Unlimited--carbs.net). Have any of you guys used this setup? I tried it both ways today at speeds up to 80 mph and I really didn't see a difference--I think the added flow of the square weber air filter balances out the cold air of the stock setup. Anyway, I think I'm going to send the adapter back, but I was just wondering if anybody saw a real difference/advantage that might entice me to keep it (I don't think it's worth the extra $30).

I found it is good for cold weather. Helps with the warm-up process. However, living in Florida I would think it is not needed. I would just stay with the small base and K&N filter.

One advantage that comes to mind is that the stock assembly may help keep mud and water out of the carb a little better. I know that the square filter is oil coated and can be cleaned, but it's a little harder for mudd to travel up the inlet on the stock assembly.

Just a thought
