There isn't really much of anything as far as tuning for the v8tt unfortunately. Should be a very easy platform to get decent power out of but no tuners are making any effort there. Just a lot of "we will have something soon" crap for over a year.

dinan will have something shortly BUT it will be hooked into new intercoolers and $$$$. Hopefully, they will come up with a stand-alone air intake that adds significant power and is not priced too steeply. I really do not care about carbon fiber bling--just good solid performance gains.

So far no real intakes only drop in K&N filters and scoops ( which i make)
We have a few people including me working on a few intake designs but the prices will be steep due to production cost.

Ya after some searching online and the forums that's what I've concluded. Do the scoops make a difference alone without changing to kn filters or does the combo of both go together like peanut butter and jelly.

I pointed out for you with red arrow...Scoops help to force more air inside the intake.



They usually come as a set with high flow filters:

I think your angle is off, though without a filter it should flow pretty awesome. No balls that you make your next 1/4 mile pass with two of those hanging out of the hood...scratch that, no hood.
