You are right. But also i may argue that my ranger has this like cylindrical air box, that when i look at the design, seems very constricting, not to mention the intake tube which is flattened and has ribbed sides. I just have a feeling that a smooth open tube and an open air intake filter would increase performance somewhat. Idk, it just looks like a really crappy intake in my opinion.

-Also i cant even find the tube opening that delivers the air to the air box.
