Can you be more specific? The problem is now gone with the intake. Breathing in a constant 75-80 in to the intake vs 180+. Adding hot air to any motor will rob power

I'm suspicious of your conclusions because those with the stock air box don't seem to have the power loss you describe. I didn't when I had one. If this were the case, there might be an legitimate performance argument for why we switched to cowl induction. Also, what are your intake temps on a 90* day? On a 100* day?
