A hell of a lot more noise.. A negligable gain in torque at low rpm.

plus if using a standard airbox I swear it amplifies it!!  Need to work on my intake system, got something in mind, will post details as and when it happens.

it used to be the thing to do more the general consensus these days is that you'll make the same power with a single inlet and you'll have more under-bonnet space for other things.  Space is the main reason I ditched my twin inlets.

I've got a few ideas on a custom manifold for the charger, incorporating both intakes on the charger fed from one filter tucked down behind the bumper in front of wheel arch, it may have already been done??

Planning a single inlet manifold splitting onto both side of the charger, was toying with cutting the inlet housing of the charger off to make a larger rectangle'ish  for easier fabrication, but worried about integrety of charger, and once its been cut up there now going back(though I do have a spare to play with first)??
