Dude...that'* a pos.

There isn't an intake made that will fit an L27, L36, and L67. The angle of the TB coming off the intake/sc is different between the SC and NA drivetrains. That'* a generic 'fits all' cheapo.

I think it would work. Its just a short air intake. It wouldn't lead all the way up to behind your headlight like deathrats would, but I don't see anything wrong with it. You could also go get a piece of 3" steel and take it to a muffler shop...it wouldn't matter if it was manderal bent or not because of it only needing to be bent slightly and the length of the pipe.

lol I have bought one of everything..Realy I have. I have bought their unit though and it was another intake that had been butcher into the shape needed. The filter was lame, and the hole for the air intake sensor was in the wrong place. Yup all around bad. I did fix it and in the end it can be made to work so if you are willing to mess around its not a horrible deal. You do get what you pay for.

Oh one other thing it still had the residue from the other car it was on before it was salvaged from some yard to then be cut and sold to me.

Tuned Ported Injection,
Personaly I dont **** with electronics. They win by proving you right by not working!!. then you have to tow it to a deal so they can tell you inperson, Dont **** with electronics. and slam you with a 50 dollar (because we can tax) bill for giving you that info, and if you want the dealer to fix it they will tell you that the part is discontiuned. (lol I screwed with the driverside window in my car) it "sorta" works now,

More air is better than less cold air, to an extent. Read the article in Techinfo on Air Density, and the article on Intake mods.

Your tires are probably why you can't break loose.
