I have them. You'll need to retune it and I would suggest a Power Commander to get the best tune you can.

Is it worth it? Gains all the way across the tach. At 3400 rpm it picked up 11 HP and 17 ft-lbs. At peak it only gained 2 HP and 8 ft/lbs (on a 104" Lloydz engine)

I've been tossing the idea of buying a set of those too but the $500 price tag seems a bit high.

Looking at how they are made and being that I'm a fabricator myself, I might just whittle up a set of my own when I get a chance. I am going to buy their VFC3 and IAC.

As for installing theirs, they have a downloadable install guide on their website. Hardest part is ripping out the old air box as far as I can tell.

If I'm not mistaken, the $525 includes dyno tuning. Ask Lloyd.

$525 is the price for the part alone.

If you like the look and and don't mind spending the money they are great! Usually though I see much more gain for the money on a built motor like half_crazy was mentioning. If you're never going to go into the motor the S&S is a great intake for the money. Big motors that I build I try and recommend the TTi.
