Here's the tube installed. Nice low growl at WOT and a little more turbo spool

Mine has blue lettering. Look in the gallery. Paint the entire mani cover in whatever color you want, let dry thoroughly and sand off the top. Voila, new recessed color scheme and nice detail. :)

Looks cool, not sure if it's worth $35 or whatever, though.

Wow, you need to either dirty that large intake pipe or clean your engine?

Intake looks impressive! :)

yep I like it. It seriously added a nice growl and a tad more turbo spool. But if your partly deaf your not going to know. Thanks for the comments guys

Is that an FIPK on the front of it? So the pipe itself isn't very long then..... And what are you using for the bend going to the MAF, just the stock rubber hose?

Yeah that's the FIPK with the stock elbow connecting to the MAF. 3" diameter and 8"s long.

lol i noticed that one too. why buy a fancy hoop prop when golf clubs work just as well................and some are even c/f! JDM YO! any who, so what you did was just a cone filter and what looks to be a 3in. pipe? what is it suppost to do? smooth out the air flow alittle? i just cant see the addition of a 3 in. pipe doing anything.........but then, i dont have a turbo :thumbup:

Theres a silencer box where the red piping is now, and where the FIPK is was where the filter box used to reside. Both are pretty restrictive for inlet to a turbo spooling pretty much double factory boost...... I've heard stories of unmodified turbo inlet pipes collapsing due to the increased airflow and massive restrictions. Trust me, it's much better this way..... :thumbup:

ahh i see. i just didnt know what was there to begine with (i really should learn more about these cars :thumbup: ) but it all makes sence, wow, for na cars all we have to worry about is our intake bottle necking our flow but like you said if you really get on it and its stoped up or just no enuff air flow the intake will create a vacum..........that cant be good.

If you look in the gallery, my car has a somewhat similar setup, except I'm using 3" exhaust pipe and a ricer air filter that cost me $24. Total cost was about $30 for my setup. I hate wasting money on bling........ :thumbdwn: ( No offense to SKD, of course...;) )

None taken... I had my neighbor change out my fan belt today. (he offered and I was at school and didn't have time) so that's one less thing to squeak lol.

You've obviously never actually taken a look at the stock silencer box. It's a restrictiveless tube with a box surrounding it and two small holes allowing air to pass from the pipe into the box. There is no restriction whatsoever from the silencer. The actual intake box is quite good flowing. But the problem comes from where it gathers air and how it funnels it from the engine bay. Simply remove the restrictive funnel and it's quite free flowing. The air filter surface area is actually larger than many cone air filters in use.

i was looking at my intake (yes zbum i actaully spent time on this bout 20-30 minutes) neways i was looking at where it gathers air and i was unable to see where it actaully draws the air in, i saw where it goes over by the right headlgiht but that was as much as i could see (i didn't look underneath, was unsure if i would see nething different), but wheres the funnel at?
