    Is this for real ?

    I came across this while surfing on Ebay....claims 1-2 mph gains by simply swapping the old one out and putting this one in place.

    2 mph is not for real. Beware of ebay sellers and their false claims!!!

    R&D only claims 1 mph and even then that is a stretch

    So how does this work exactly, just by increasing the length of the nozzle it's supposed to give you some more top end mph....what is a realistic gain by installing something like this, 0.5-1.0 mph tops ? Hell 1mph is worth $135...lol

    honestly, consider it a handling modification. If you gain a couple of tenths from it then great. I have never seen even 1 mph gain from using that nozzle.

    While we're on the subject, what Intake Grate do you like best out of these for a 09' SHO ? Which one has a performance edge over the other ? I would assume this is money better spent than on the nozzle.
    RIVA FX-SHO Top-Loader Intake Grate
    R&D SHO Aquavein Intake Grate

    On a side note this doesnt fit on a VXR as RD lists and your store lists. I bought one and it doesnt even come close to fitting. Just an FYI
