Front mount intake will get you the same power increase as a regular CAI. It's for show mostly (for those guys who want people to THINK it's an Intercooler, but really it's just an Intake).

They are both Cold Air Intakes..they both suck air up in practically the same place. Only the front mount intake has a freakishly huge filter compared to a regular CAI..which wont help in performance.

the intake can only pull so much air in by itself... it doesnt need such a massive opening... the front mount is more or less just too look like an intercooler, as thunderbird said...

It has a shield you put over it to protect it from rain/puddles...at the track you are supposed take off the shield and run it w/o it
