Default Possible air scoop in place of Eventuri?

So I'm running an Eventuri intake without a air scoop (bought it that way) and I recently ran into one of these on eBay. What do you guys think? Worth the investment? Or should I just keep running the stock ducting.

If cost isn't a concern, you can buy the eventuri scoop on it's own from ECS or IND

Id like to hear input as I also bought one without the scoop. And $280 IIRC is a little ridiculous for me

I think the eventuri scoop is what makes the intake work so well. If you want the most out of the intake I will advise you to get the scoop.

Joe if you're going to buy one, get it straight from Evolve or a distributor for $170 (discount price right now).

I wouldn't waste $50 on that ebay one.

Be aware, adding a scoop will not do anything you'll feel whatsoever. It'll drop temps by a degree or two.

Do it for looks/just because, but don't do it expecting the eventuri to get louder or get more air - it's sucking in plenty of air where it sits AND there's stock ducting bringing in air

If that is the case then why did evolve develop the scoop!? The scoop makes a big difference. Check out their video on the development of the e9X m3 intakes. All the facts you will need is right there.

What has improved?

The engine can only "suck" air at a certain rate through a certain sized "straw"

Adding a air scoop doesn't make it breath any better.

Cold air is already being fed to that area so the scoop isn't going to lower temps much.

Please explain how the car will be "better" with the scoop?

Or is this like how your car runs better after an oil change or a car wash?

Tempted by the lower price, and then again you also discouraged me due to the fact it won’t do anything for me. Hmmm

It's more responsive compared to the the stock nonexistent scoop(was the even a scoop? I don't remember) obviously at speed with air flowing up the scoop into the air box.
