how air flow restriction could work?
It speeds up as the air flows through and then pushes more air when not needed... in short - pointless.

Looks nice, maybe adds some sound, but technically - no use.

Yes it works. It adds about 3 HP for every engine liter.

Most important thing to first do to a car is the stepping stones. Usually the air intake/breathing systems, (Exhaust, headers, intake) that will leave you open for future upgrades if you wish.

I know that K&N makes a universal cold air intake, might want to look at that. K&N Apollo Universal Closed Air Intake Systems

You die for your country, I'll live for mine.
