    I like the OEM look of the carb intake. Even though I want the forge one more.

    IF I had the forge DV + Carb intake I'm guessing it would make the same kind of noise.

    I've got the carbonio in take on mine, and as mentioned, it's pretty much a cosmetic add on (I got mine at a bargain price though!).
    It does seem to improve response slightly, but nothing significant - I'd be surprised if it demonstrated any increase in power at the wheels.
    I also upgrade the panel filter to a BMC at the same time.
    The Carbonio does increase intake noise, I'm thinking of getting the forge DV (hopefully I'll be catching up with jonnyc at the weekend to have a look over some of his mods) and getting this added to my car and then getting the GIAC MC Hammer map the next time there is a show on and it's going for 40% off!!!

    Car is in for it's service soon so just toying with putting it all back to OEM for that... decsions!
