XDi Air Intake??

I saw this on eBay and was wondering what you guys think on it. Price seems good but I have never herd or seen of this company before. I know your all going to say stay stock until 500+rwhp but it really looks bad *** under the hood.

Heres a video about it:

I am pretty sure that they are selling a discontinued item there because I thought they didnt make these anymore. I would say if you are going to go aftermarket look at S&B or AFE.

I put a airraid filter PB and didn't get anything from it. Not sure if it was worth the money.

It may look "bad @$$" under the hood, but you take a good chance of dusting the turbo, which leads to destroying the blades on the compressor wheel.$$$$$!

I actually ran a XDI intake for a little while, it was given to me to do some testing on. The XDI does not fit on the truck very well, the piping makes some awkward bends and is pretty difficult to line up properly. I only ran it for five months so I can't comment on its ability to stop dirt and dust over the long run. During the time I did test it, I did not notice any dust had made it past the filter. One thing I found pretty interesting, I did keep a close eye on the intake air temperature (IAT) to compare it to other intakes. I'm sure its due to the metal cylinder but the IAT was consistently 20-30 degrees hotter than ambient air, even when running down the freeway. Comparability AFE and Airaid systems I have tried have IAT close to ambient air, within 2-4 degrees. So really the XDI is like a hot air intake, haha. I would stay away, get an AFE or S&B closed system.
