The series III intake is a direct bolt on... I'm not sure about the throttle body plate tho...

Thats all we need...

Some of the GP guys have found that the old plastic manifold actually flowed better, and they found that the series III upper intake took some power away... But I'm not sure on that so it all still up in the air...

Still, one has to admit that the money they received from all those repairs pales in comparison to the faith they lost in the customer'* eyes after so many people had problems with this, and the market share they probably lost due to customer disenchantment. Unfortunately, and this actually goes for things even outside of this argument, people in general have an unbecoming habit of coming to the conclusion that, if something can't be measured on a scale or experimented on in a laboratory, than it "obviously" does not exist. Nothing could be further from the truth, though

There are guys on Clubgp.com that have their setups for sale. Pretty reasonable too. I thought about getting one, but just too cheap to do it right now...
