Where are the dyno sheets.

It's like this......just the Ingen filter alone in place of the air box was netting like 10-12 ponies, If the Ingen can do that, this CA has to be worth it.

But, alas, you are correct, without proof of gains, what's the point? Or even what's the cost?

Just called them. MSRP is 385.15. Let's get a group buy together. It has been dynoed, but the chart hasn't been uploaded yet. He doesn't know when that will happen but he said they dyno all the intakes.

you're telling me, but i just called them, and they're working on it. i should know today, hopefully. i don't know if they have a regular percentage markup, but i was looking into filters that run ~90 and got quoted a price of 60 or less for them, so hopefully we'll get a good price.

i'll start the new group buy thread once i know the price for 20 and 30 of them, and that'll be a start depending on how many we get, we were up to 30 easily before though, so the more we get, the cheaper it will be.

prices will be for the intake only, and i'll figure in shipping on an individual basis so as to not rip anyone off on shipping. hell, if you're in milwaukee, chicago, etc., we can arrange a meet up and do an install party too if you guys don't want to pay for shipping. stay tuned to the group buy section!

as soon as i know, you will too!!!! this is getting exciting. i'm starting to wish i waited for the header...

HOLY SHIAT! I can barley find my ass with both hands in the morning, let alone put this thing in. I might have to call in a couple of my buddies who actually know how to work on cars! :rolleyes:

When someone gets this in, I would like to know exactly how involved this is. I cannot wait to get one of these!!!!!!!!!

It dosen't look too bad, if anyone has changed the air filter or modded the intake box, this should look familiar to them. It is a pretty involved set-up, but alot of CAI's are, a guy here at work has a 350Z and bought the CAI for it 3 months ago, still sitting in the box, hes afraid to touch his car at all...

I'm a little skeptical of what performance might be gained, other than having a better flowing filter, stuffing it into the fender precludes any ram air effect. Opinions ????

It's not just the filter that flows better, look at the design of the setup, it provides a nice long path for the air to accelerate through, and I bet it's alot better at deflecting ambient temps from the air stream. It's not just the filter, is what I'm getting at. We all know that we need some charts before we start handing out $$$, AEM has a dyno up for theirs, and I would guess that K&Ns would be similar.

From the install pics, that airbox stays in, and the tube passes through it ? Correct ??? Spooner, I understand the concept of having smooth laminar air flow, but the stock system does that pretty well, other than having the box located right in the middle of the flow path. Definately curious to see some charts.

Sorry, I'm babbling a bit, nothing like a big frosty beer at lunch on Friday to make you speak before you think!

I wonder why the didn't bother to shitcan the airbox? Would make for a much nicer looking install, and could have perhaps used less pieces. Maybe they thought it would be to much work for people to remove. Opinions ???
