V6 Air Box

  RenaultSport Clio 172 FF
Can you tell me what difference the V6 air box makes over the OEM 172 air box?

Also is there any difference between the Clio V6, Espace V6, and the Laguna V6 Air Boxes?

Does any one have any pics of these fitted?

Not sure if this is in the right place, sorry if its not.

I found that it felt like I had lost a bit of torque/power lower down but gained a bit higher up.
A few people on here have said the same, as above others have said it made no difference what so ever.

I've got the JMS kit which is a V6 box, with a pipercross cylindrical filter, silicone hose & oil breather.
In their tests a decatted 182 gained 10bhp, but i've never met anyone that said their car felt that much difference,
it does make one hell of a good noise compared to the OEM box though.
