Default intake tube

I was wondering. Before I spend $80 on pipes to make a new intake tube. I was wondering. Does replacing the stock intake tube on the PT GTs really make that much of a difference. I know the pipe has a silencer that takes the pipe down a bit. I've already put in a K&N filter and I'm routing a tube to the front of the car later in the morning and taking the proper precautions to keep out water and whatever else. But are there enough gains to justify purchasing the pipes?

Not really.. i put a new intake on the car because the stock air box was broken.. the only gain i noticed was the sound of the intake opening up is alot louder..

No difference as tested many times on a Chassis Dyno.

Personally, I like the looks and the sound!
I would not go to the trouble of routing any Intake piping with attempting to get a cooler IAC . It wont work. The PT Cruiser intake system is to lengthy.
I did a lot of experimenting and Data Logging IAT's at different operating parameters and various primary intake charge locations.
