We've seen this in the past. It might work but here is something to think about.

1) For $25 either this guy is taking a loss, using cheap parts, or gets one hell of a discount on good quality filters and such.

2) 92 - 03 don't all have the same TB size. This would make this kit a "one size fits all" type of kit.

3) In all three engine pics the CAI is not installed on a single one.

4) Read the seller reviews. Most is praise but there are a few others too. One states this item is just, and I quote, "Complaint : WHERE'* THE INLET IN THE PIPE?, ITEM IS "HAND MADE"!! I'M VERY DISSAPOINTED".

It may work for your car and it might be a great deal, especially if money is tight. I've been told before that if a deal seems too good to be true it probably is. Ofcoarse I didn't listen to them and learned the hard way.

Buyer beware. You get what you pay for, and I know the ADTR and DP products were actually tuned for performance. Length and diameter of the pipe are critical, as is the size of the filter. Gordo is right about the TB diameter, too. There are 3 different sizes through the years. Somebody is going to get a bad fit.

As a dealer of RSM items, I can tell you that their product is second to none! Ty (DP) sells their product to as he is the dealer for Cali! Also, as Will has already stated, you DO get what you pay for after all. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is!
