If you like the look of the carbon fiber better, then yeah. The BWoody is taking air in from a slightly cooler place though. The material of the tube doesn't make a huge difference when you're talking about an intake; the air stays in the tube for such a short amount of time it is barely effected by the tube material. The area that the air is coming from makes a much bigger difference. On the same token, as 'Maryland' said, BWoody, Volant, Arrington, aFe are all comparable. Little noticeable difference between them. I've had a modified stock air box, Volant, BWoody, and LMI. I went back and have stuck with BWoody. Just a preference thing.
