That tubing looks like it would provide more intake burble than my Airaid, and the Airaid was a pain to wedge in there which may be an issue some point down the road.

Stupid question though; why use metal tubing in a (very) hot engine bay when plastic is a much worse thermal conductor?
the ait's while running are the same. air charge cools the intake down to on average 1 degree below ambient (so with margin for error ambient), within a minute or so.

lets be honest, more than anything else, over the stock intake they are noisemakers. and to my ears, my car sounds better with the metal tube vs the roto molded tube I tried when I put an airraid on my car.
