Do you have a programmer on your car because then it will make a difference, because it’s one of the questions the program ask youI have one and there was an. Improvment in fuel efficiency by about 1-2mpg. supposedly slight increase in hp. It definitely wasnt worse. The intake ends in the same spot witha heat shield but the original probably produces the same temp of air tbh. I would recommend it because of the slight improved engine sound and fuel efficiency. But if none of that is important to you, it probably isn't worth it.
