Ebay Intake Pics

I decided to be the guinea pig for this..this is pretty much for experimental purposes..but i do like it

I love it..looks good and is well made..only thing it doesnt do is connect directly to the TB..but i bont see how that is such a bad thing..It was a pretty simple install..Im 17 so if i can do it you can too..i enjoy it..and it is a kick in the pants..

Well. looks are one thing but function is another.

1. If it does not replace the connector at the Throttle body, its pretty much worthless.(thats where most of the restriction in the stock intake is, remove it and look)

2. Its sitting right over the exhaust manifold, your going to heat soak real baddly (metal is useless in an intake due to its high rate of heat exchange) (wrap it with some insulating tape is your only option with that intake, but that would ruin its useless looks)

3. Air filter is sucking hot air from engine compartment.

4. Does it have any brackes other than connecting to the TB? if not your asking for trouble.

5. No band clamps on the blue connector, it will fall apart.

6. Its hitting the intake manifold , rattle and down the road, intake manifold failure.

7. Long clear plastic hose for the breather is not rated for engine compartment use and the fitting is on the wrong side. (if it falls off at that lenghth and touches the exhaust, which it will, its a fire hazard)

Im sorry, but it looks good but is probably going to slow your car down ove the stock setup. You think the car is faster because you hear the intake noise, but that design is a waste.

Im sorry, you should have got one designed for the car, not a generic fit. (that is generic)
There is a reason members of this board spent long hours designing a intake that fits our cars, and the intake you got is the reason why.

It is not a cold air intake at all, its at best a slightly less restrictve intake but heat soak will far outweigh any gains it may offer.

You should have listened to the senior members here before you bought that.

Nice work. It does look nice indeed and as for more power....well we all know that isn't the best mod. to do but it helps......with a heatshield (I need one too) anyways, nice job.

Last i checked, these were family cars, so no matter what looks will always prevail over true function

just bore it out, or buy a piece of PVC PIPE at home depot and replace it

as i remember the only difference a Good Intake makes is about 7HP, and this one might be 5hp... WOW, that 2 HP really makes a big deal.

when driving, the air will be cool anyway, not much covering the bottom of the engine compartment.

HOW? as long as your motor mounts are good, it shouldnt move that much

TRUE, they are about 2$ a piece at any hardware store

its too far onto the connector to fall off, and if it does, it will only melt, not burst into flames

i think we have a winner. just like when Tim bought his FIPK...oh...why not a J-intake? sometimes on here it seems like to be a member, you only have one choice of things to get...and the funny thing is that its not Joe who does it...its everyone else...Joe is cool as hell and understands what happens, but some people on here act like to be a member, you HAVE to get what is made by members.

IIII don't know about all that buddy. Reason being is that I think forescore and many moons ago when Mr Lister made and sold 2nd gen intakes (referred to as L-intakes) one of the members here who bought one actually went and got his car dynoed.

Hey Imadreadhead. that intake looks great!!! That's what matters right... to be a little different than eveyone else?
Damn your engine bay is clean! I just installed my "intake" today aswell... not the ebay one, but different than the main $200 ones, just like yourself.
Keep up with the modding!

1. Im not selling anything, just pointed out a few problems
2. Pic 2 its hitting the back corner of the intake manifold
3. "It will only melt" why should it even have a chance to "only melt"
4. Yes it is Mr. Lister that spent a lot of money to design, dyno test and come up with the most bang for the buck you can get. To help everone here out. I dynoed metal intakes, and as soon as the exhaust got up to operating temps it generated less HP and had higher intake temps (measured on drbIII) than the stock system, so its not a Cold air intake.
Joe does great work, and anyone here that slights him is not too sharp.
There are limited performance parts for our cars, if you just want bling, then that intake (apart from no mounts, clamps, and "melts hoses) is just fine.
You can buy anything you want, but if you want the most performance for the trep that you can get, the intake must be coated (as Joe's) or all plastic as K&N's.
I know 5-8 hp is not much, but it's better than less hp than stock.

Looks Good Dready!

Here are a couple things for your to-do-list:
1. Bore out the restriction in the connector to the TB. It's easy, and makes a real difference.
2. Finish your heatshield and get it in place.
3. Don't listen to the haters! I get a little critical at times, but man, some of these guys get a little too carried away!

I don't really buy that the heat shield does much of anything...when you are driving down the road there is so much air being circulated that I doubt the heatshield drops the temperature more than a degree or two.
