Will you buy one of these?

Check it out, PRL dropped a new version of their High Volume Intake

Although these provide marginal benefit at most, I think it looks aesthetically pleasing

Am I correct in the difference in the old vs new is it now gets air from outside of engine compartment (as stock does)? The old one (and what some have complained about) got (hot) air from inside engine compartment.

Not on the PRL. The only air inlet on the PRL airbox mates to the stock scoop. This new one molds it all together and replaces the stock scoop. Not a huge difference other than aesthetics.

Ahhhh... ok, now I see that. I was comparing the two on the website and not looking at after V1 was installed (using stock scoop). Thanks.

In hopes that at some point they would sell just the airbox, I reached out to PRL and they said it is a completely different redesign and wouldn't fit. I looked over the parts and everything looks exactly the same, including the 4" cone filter, MAF housing, and intake hose, so I'm not entirely sure what is the difference outside of the airbox.

"Thanks for reaching out to us! Sadly, we won't be offering the airbox for individual sale as the whole design of the intake is different compared to the V1. I'm terribly sorry for any inconvenience this may be!" - PRL

I just purchased the V2 PRL HVI yesterday and waiting for it to come in so I can install it this weekend. I currently am running the Mishimoto Intake which I like but I read after I purchased it that it gives the car a lag in acceleration and other cons. I am hoping the PRL will make things better

I'd buy it if they offer the option for just the airbox. I'd imagine quite a few people already own the V1, and the only difference is the airbox.
Not exactly true. I installed the v2 Thursday evening last week and the silicon tube is just long enough to be able to clamp to the Ti inlet pipe and the new airbox, but doesn't sit nearly as deep on both the inlet pipe and MAF housing. It works, but keeping my order placed for the new silicon tube that is supposed to be released end of May. I didn't compare the v1 stock silicon tube to the v2 silicon tube, but I would have to assume it is slightly longer on the v2. The MAF housing of course is the same between both. From a logistics perspective I understand why they sell it as a whole unit versus piecemeal. I could try to sell my v1 for pennies on the $, but if the v2 was sold piecemeal, wouldn't really be able to sell it as a working unit without the MAF housing. The MAF housing is the most expensive part of the intake.
