So im torn. Here is a pic with both scoops. What should I keep? Seems like the RPI scoop would send a lot more air in and looks more aggressive but if I wont get the full benefit out of the Evolve intake without evolves scoops then i'd rather use the evolve scoops. What do you think?

I'm still using my RPi, but mainly since Black was shipped to me vs requested Red...Evolve is shipping me in red.

The scoop on the left is definitely not the correct RPI scoop for the M5. Not sure what that is

The solution is simple. Try both options and see which you like more and report back to us any noticeable differences :)

Oops, sorry about that. I assumed M5 since we're on the M5 side of the board :)

Make sure you put the lower scoops in as well.
I do think if Evolve had thought the RPI's would work better up top, they'd have designed 'em that way. Seems logical?

Where's Mike (Revo) at? He's the mechanical engineer. He took fluid dynamics and what not so he should be able to chime in here on his thoughts between the two different designs :p

Good move-i gave mine away to Jcolley along with some laser blinders for his invaluable help on the install, plus we got a some priceless camaraderie out of the whole deal. I hope you like the intakes!!!

Personally, I would install the Evolve scoops. From reading all the information regarding the Evolve intakes the scoops they designed are a supporting component of acheiving the power the intakes produce.

I stayed with my RPi scoops, simply because I'm sure they will do, saves some installation time. Plus they're red. Looks great.

Both "scoops" look stupid IMHO and do absolutely nothing for performance. But if you must waste your hard earned cash and choose between the 2, go with the RPI. The Evolves appear to block a lot of radiator space.

Flame suit on and zipped to the top. :1:
