a bit cheaper than the Intense W-body intakes when its all said and done, 154 dollars was the final price...ill probably fab up some sort of a heat shield as well once i get it.

yeah we discussed it, he actually wanted to do a FWI, but the auroras fenderwell is apparently pretty well sealed off and inaccessible, which to my understanding is why he made his go behind the headlight...we took some measurements and whatnot and figured out the Intrigue setup wouldnt work on the aurora.

To bad, FWI isnt really my choice intake system, and his for a CAI was pretty damn good. I figured with a few modifications and innovation it could work in the Intrigue.

Oh well, good luck with the purchase!

Looking at this..it looks like they do get the filter into the fender.

Now is it just me or does it look like they cut the sheet metal to get it in there?
