Default CAI pipes - What'* up with that?

Ok, I'm looking to do a CAI setup on my Bonne.... I've been pricing the pipe out and whoa that got expensive! Autozone is getting $40 for it.... EBay is about the same. The ones on EBay are being sold as a twin pipe kit for the Civic for about $15 but there getting another $25 for shipping! Wha happened?

I think others will be able to chime in and add to this.. But a seller might jack up the *&H since they don't have to pay anything to ebay on that. When they would have to pay a percentage of what their item is listed at to ebay.

Usually ebay will punish people who jack the shipping up to sell the item at a lower price. You could report them to ebay as well. I try to never do business with people like that myself. Those guys are almost as bad as the ones who claim big hp gains from the boat bilge motor they claim is an electric supercharger.

that and you get it the same day. I am among many members that have used it and can say its good for what it does. Make sure you have a hacksaw, as it will need some cutting to fit.

That'* the one I bought. You just buy it, send them your car'* year, model, and engine # and they send you one that should fit perfectly. I know mine does.
