From intake options:

What would I need to do to have the intake on the turbo? Would it be worth it?

You can make your own or buy one from a company like Genuine Saab or Speedparts....

The Intake makes a lot of noise but I cant imagine it does much for serious power gains unless you are running a serious tune. (looking at HP/$$)

But I'm not going to lie, I picked one up for the cost and I wanted the cool turbo sucking noise that comes with it.

Takes a whole 10 minutes to install as well.

In the Intake Options thread, it says Cone on turbo. I was wondering if its worth it to have the intake on the turbo? Im confusing myself.

well a cone filter ont he turbo, would just be putting a filter off the intake side of your turbo. You have no need to do that on a stock turbo. If you had some giant gt40 monster in there, with no room for intake plumbing, you would put a filter right on the turbo.

yeah, puting a cone on the intake would be wayyyy too much trouble. Plus, have you ever looked at the intake side of your turbo? No room for a cone there

And you'd be sucking in some nice hot air if you did that on the stock turbo in the stock location.

Plus, you have a MAF sensor, and its not possible to run without that.

So, for those reason, and more...itaintgonnahappen. :lendostar:
