    I decided a while back that I really wanted to hear the sound of the V8 intake a lot more than the stock setup allows, so I started looking at aftermarket kits. For some bizarre reason they're sitting at horrendous money, and tbh I saw no reason to shell out £500+ for something so very basic. A...
