Rather than sacrifice your mileage by going with a replacement intake, why not get the replacement airbox that fixes the turbo dusting issue those square-head screws cause? The replacement airbox has steel screws with slots in them, and hold the lid more tightly to the filter, eliminating the potential ingress of unfiltered dirt.
Contrast that to the increased intake engine heat, increased EGTs and decreased mileage recorded nearly across the board when users switch to an unchambered, heat-soaked open filter element... the choice is yours.
