    I think they are still in the process of designing it.

    They're offering a dual cone intake in the short term but are designing a full turbo inlet replacement that will be a cold air intake all the way to the turbos. It'll be a $#@! to install but preliminary testing indicates huge improvements over the stock turbo inlet pipes that wrap around the hot ass engine and smash down to about an inch in thickness.

    ASR did some flow tests on the stock piping. i dont have exact data, but anyone can call to find out if they're very curious. although it does go around the hot block, the air is moving at such a high speed, at high rpm, that its not as affected as you'd think. and the pancake is better than the vw piping for instance (couple of my friends have gtis) because when it pancakes the actual volume of air that can pass through that space doesn't change. if i remember right abid told me bmw did their homework on the flow of the stock pipes.

    I'm sure gains will be made over the stock intake with cp-e's design. even dci's make gains. also i would like to add a request to cp-e if they can do some flow tests too. the piping part, not the intake. it would be nice to have info from two companies.
