I had bought a used PFlow which I used in conjunction with the little piece I had left from the USP intake. I was not running a PCV though and was just routing vapor through a catch can and back to...

So the air filter sits in front of the driver side wheel. If you don't have anything under it, or it's very open, it will get filthy especially if it rains. I have everything enclosed very well and...

I have already worked on this with IE. I am running a stage 2 that Peter at IE helped out with and is the same as stage 1 on the low end. ...

Length. This adds about 8" to the intake. I was having horrible throttle response off idle. Starting off in first was a bitch as the rpm's jump all over the place. I think with the Intake so short...

That's a nice setup. I always thought CAI's were way more expensive than they should be so it's nice to see a relatively inexpensive alternative that works well and looks good.

For those of us...

Not designed to create power but reduce "parasitic engine drag" essentially freeing up power, which I think is a stretch at best. I think "gains" was a poor choice of words on my part, I was meaning...

If I was in Florida and it started leaking it would be outa there never to return. I think I put a video in the other thread for replacing it and I recall it was kind of a pain in the ass.

I'll get to try it out in a year or so when I have to put the stock IM back on for the smog check. I'm not planning on changing tunes as stage 2 should pass emissions no problem.

Ya adding the short shifter made it really hard to get a clean shift the way the intake was setup. Lengthening the pipe toned down the throttle so it's not so jumpy.

Gonna use both the 1/8 and 1/4.. I found a funky adapter for a coke machine to plumb 2 lines into a single 3/8 that looks like a tuning fork. I figure 1/8 + 1/4 = 3/8. Too bad where flow is...
