that does not look quite like what I got...no it will not fit if it is for t5....

besides, that thing looks SPENT. I might be selling mine... going back to airbox, still deciding... let me know if you might be interested. I would be asking a "bit more" than 15 bucks, since it is brand new, used only about 1000 miles...

The cranky old Swedes at Saabnet maintain that the stock airbox supplies cooler air than the open filter intakes.

or time for new plugs....

but anyways my tuner advised me against the cone filter if I follow through with my plan for stage 3... it is safer to make the 270 Hp on (just for example) 16 psi and colder air than to make the same power on 20 psi and hot air. that is how I understand it anyways... because higher temp means higher boost and more chance to do damage. I know other tuners feel differently about the open air filter thing, but then again they also have a more aggressive tuning philosophy, maybe their focus is on the HP numbers and not reliability? I do not know for sure, I am still trying to figure out the whole T7 thing as I get all sorts of contradicting info from various sources....

I'll put my stock airbox back on soon as I can convince myself to live without the sound ... and find that darned rubber bushing for the MAF sensor!

When I do I'll get you some temperature data.
Once the engine-bay heat-soaks the problem seems to be something more sinister as if you shut off the engine the temps rise considerably. Presumably this is because the supply of cooler-air has been cut-off. But we'll see how this works out.

I should have some airmass data from a viggen and a 9-5 aero soon with ff-filter compared to std paper. I will also look into the response affect of these filters.
