Review Dinan CF intake kit

Just picked up a second hand Dinan CF intake elbow and filter kit,

I went from stock filter and elbow to the Dinan kit, the most noticeable difference is the new music coming from under the hood now.
Of course the S65 sounds incredible to begin with, this just amplifies and sweetens that sound

I have no idea if this makes any more power (8hp claimed) but the sound it makes is addictive. I have only put 40 miles on it since i installed,
initial butt dyno says yes more power, and more of a snap to the throttle response

Build quality is extremely high, it fits perfectly, installation took 20 mins.

Cant say it warrants Dinan asking $895 for it, but i'm extremely happy with it for just over half of retail!
