I dont have it yet, waiting for other companies to offer their model to see which is best. The one thing you will notice for sure is the wastegate sound when it releases pressure. Its probably the only reason I will be buying it - it sounds godly.

yeah, optimus performance from what i know is the only other company that has an intake for the red sports. They have it on their site with limited info about gains and etc.

The intake will only provide an audible upgrade as our VR motor sounds soo sad. I ended purchasing the Stillen intakes, they are shipping tomorrow so I'll get them in about a week. I didn't know Optimus made an intake.

How did you get them so soon? Last I heard they have a 60+ order backlog.

For the record, I paid $500 free ship. But $600 is better than waiting 3-4 weeks from stillen, in my opinion.

Yeah I've seen it on their website 500$.

There has to be a hp increase, not just a sound change. That's a lot more air into the motor then what the stock filters bring. Stillen claims 15-20hp gains.
