On the dyno I've seen 1hp gain just by taking it off. Only time you would need to worry about it is maybe when it rains.

I have it off my 07. It may be wishful thinking, but it feels like it breathing easier at high rpms and revs a little easier. It's louder, that's for sure.

But it plays havoc with my camera when I mount it to the tank at the track! lol

Plus I have an M4 full exhaust on it too. It's all quiet at idle but touch that throttle and all bets are off!

I always pulled that snorkel off any SV I've owned. Any little bit of performance helps especially when you're workin with 70hp!
