As seen in this thread, Patent Pending Generation 4 BIG MOUTH now allows you to change your flare color and shape! Flares are now removable and shapes can be had in any color. Get the custom look you really want, aggressive, subtle, or straight bonkers (Asymmetric Hexagonal anyone?).

>>GENERATION 4 IS HERE<<












Black friday special on these puppies, don't forget, PRICE FOR BIG MOUTHs never changed. We love you guys!!

And holy sh-- yes you would have owned every single generation of big mouth from 1 to 4... wow... i wonder if you could take a picture of them side by side to see the evolution, we've come a long way!

I dont know if the edge ST big mouth fits the sport, i looked at a few pictures and its hard to tell unless someone removes the cowl cover and takes more pics.

Well i have gen 2 or 3 that i bought for my 18 ST not a month or so after i got it. Its held up great, doesnt have any cracking, its faded some and that may be the color itself doesnt do well in sun, and plastic degrades too. But besides that it helds its looks for at least 2 years, its not even so much that its not blue anymore it just isnt the dark blue glossy luster anymore, now it looks like a milky blue...lol. Age, what are you gonna do? But I really like the assymetrical hexagonal, that looks awesome...just gotts decide on another color, not sure if I wanna do blue again or something else....hmmm

Sweet! Looks like I'll just buy one of these new ones instead of a gen 3 to replace mine.
I'm thinking trapezoidal would look spicy with the shape of the ST's grill.
Thanks for the continued improvements and support of this platform!
@VelossaTech

Edit: would we be able to buy the flare separately so we could try 2 different shapes to decide which we like better?

I like that new shape. My wife would slap me silly if I bought one just because it is newer and different and cool!

Better to ask for forgiveness than permission. (Note: She handles the finances or I would have lots of toys plus lots of debt.)

Have to ask, are they worth it for performance benefits or is this more cosmetic? I've read around a bit, but seems everyone's configuration is the factor.
I've definitely noticed cooler intake temps with my snorkel. It's pulling air directly from the front instead of having to work its way around and through the warm radiator. There's also something to be said for having the air forced into the intake at highway speeds but im no expert on this.

Stock air box^^

Glad you asked, for our specific snorkel. Yes there is a performance benefit with respect to vehicle speed. At higher speeds, youll see more airflow as the air pressure is proportional to the velocity squared. It's a ram air device so we dont dyno test, we do airflow logs and pull data. See 3rd and 4th gear plots below.

We also see a reduction in WGDC because the turbo doesnt need to spin as fast to attain target boost or load.

Yes you can buy flares separately. Right here.

So I posted a WTB Gen 3 and so far only got what appears to be scammer PMs...

Not to take away from this thread, but to hopefully help anyone on the fence getting the new really cool-looking Gen 4,... OR just to keep an old unit from gathering dust in your garage...
Let me know, please
TIA :)
