      i've heard they dont do very good on 4 bangers. wel just depends on where they were made too.. some are imported and some were made here. but MANN is my favorite

      and also heard they got crappy pretty recently, i dont know if they had a bad rep 10 years ago

      there was a bunch of them on ebay last summer that went for cheap. I tried to get one but got outbid.

      I'd love to try one out if i could get my hands on one.

      Yes, the hood is slightly lifted so it clears just enough to close. I'm running it w out the cover but might change it up a bit.

      Mine is raised a bit to give it clearance. Not sure if you can see the little gap.

      we talked about that in an old thread. someone verified that you don't need to modify the hood for the MK4 intake to fit
