    I wonder what kind of restriction it creates.

    I doubt you would get any restriction. The car can only suck in so much air. It may be better to have it on to potentially lessen the amount of heat the intake sucks in from the engine bay.

    Lol. I know I know. I'll just leave it at that.
    This intake is one of the best looking ones on the market. Really sharp looking.

    I think you misunderstood what I was saying about the shield. I thought the intake had an inner shield, not just a top shield. Most of the time, intakes that do have a shield, are created to help keep any engine bay heat away from the actual filter itself. I guess this shield is more like a deflector, from water falling on the filter.

    I just took mine off, found it was rattling as it doesn't secure very tight with just the one fastening point. Only need it if you drive in the rain.

    Both work in conjunction with each other and is better than just one, but as a stand alone they work as well.

    Remember, even with the rain shield in place, water can still get in through the front headlight inlet.
