I fitted one..more cosmetic than functional

Yes I’ve used them the quality isn’t good there a bit flimsy there not even tig just 4 rivets on each side folded Aliminium painted black I’m going to make some but tig weld mine in stainless steel I guess it helps a bit on my technocraft the two scoops are built together these are a bit bigger but not much. afe do one that could be better but it’s also twice the price and Mach snell do a plastic version.
I was guessing the quality wouldnt be the best but they look very similat to the afe ones/should do a similar job for a third of the price, did they fit ok on yours? I wonder why eventuri didnt develop a scoop for that part of the intake with the rest of the kit.
Yes the quality isn’t best then fitment was same but what do you expect for that price. The captive nut twisted the plate as it was flimsy and fin.so I binned mine lol,Maybe eventuri thought there’s no gains to be had as the front entrance to airbox was adequate enough and these scoops only help very little in air supply?
Check this link out. Most of the airflow comes from the lower duct. The duct behind the kidney grills narrow and goes through two 90 degree turns, so not nearly as much airflow.
