There is a thread about how the runners don't line up on the inside, that is a cheap copy from what I remember and it took a lot of work to make it right. But its a cool looking piece, I was considering it until I saw the inside of it.

They claim 20hp over stock. I guess they are selling wolf tickets.

Good luck. Just a cheap chinese copy of the PMC intakes. Never seen one with flat flanges, good welding, or quality materials.

499$ I'm gone run 175 shot through and see if it holds. Lifetime warranty I've wasted 500$ on lesser stuff if it don't workout.

That is cheap. Does the stock 90mm throttle body fits? ...I guess it doesnt fit under stock hood?

Looks very Nice. I would buy it if both answer to my Q are yes.

Gee I wonder why they don't show the curve below 5500 rpm. It will be a turd on an overweight car with no low end.

That last text reply raises red flags. Flow test on what compared to what? What is a lifetime fitment warranty. Free replacement if it all of the sudden stops fitting after 5 years?

I have know idea he just gave me the dyno info when I was drilling him on the intake.
My car only made 458rwhp with cam and heads but I trapped 93mph. So I don't get caught up into dyno numbers

I dont either but torque and hp cross at 5252rpm on all dynos because of the constant in the equation and torque is whats measured and hp is figured off the equation. In return the torque is pretty consistent from dyno to dyno just not the amount alot of times. Thats why I ask.

Very true Bo I just liked how it looked and it was cheap so I through it out there to see if anybody ever heard of or tried this intake. I have no stock in company. Lol If it's garbage it's garbage.

Hey I dig it too lol. If i bought one Id modify the rear so it would clear the cowl like the one Lethal did. It looked great under the hood.

No aluminum intake will perform as good as a composite no matter what the flow #'s. The heat soak will negate any flow gains. Just like my old Viper.....on the dyno it would pick up nearly 30 RWHP when iced down between runs, but quickly heat up and it would disappear.

Now, with FI and Meth Inj it would probably show gains if kept cool.
