This^, even the filter inclosure and box snorkel is an unknown after thought. Just like the entire intake has been.
It's as if, SXTH is reluctant to even build the; filter inclosure and box snorkel from the original design. Let the customer determine and decide what they'll spend, just make it available. It can be built as the orders are received. Just make sure they build in a lead time for production. Main thing here is; "Either crap or get off the pot."
They're never going to know or realize, until the unit is produced and ready to purchase. Making excuses and pessimistic comments about their own design, is not they way to promote or offer the product. It's best not to say anything, then what they've alluded to above in their own IG comments.
I'm not going to hold my breath in anticipation.

I think you mean heat box.. they clearly stated in this post they don’t believe a heat shield is effective but will have the closed unit available for “noise reduction at a higher cost”.
Not holding my breath.. I would gladly purchase their other products that they’ve obviously put the time and money into developing. But as stated above this whole intake seems like an after thought and unless his price severely cuts the competition and the power gains can be replicated I’ll most likely be taking my money else where.
