In the second pic the tubing further down really does look smooth. If the Intense FWI seems to work the best then I guess there is no other option until something else comes along that is proven, just wish it was a little better looking for $180.

if you can find another way to mount out IAT sensor, you dont really need the buy the entire kit, both the filter and tubing are available separate at www.intense-racing.com

i know dillcc drilled a hole in his filter and put the IAT in there, saved himself ~$50?

(I think my time slips also support the performance results as well)
Did you buy it on eBay? Is it red with Magnaflow and K&N decals on it? I sold my JMB intake on eBay to someone in the Chicago area last year. If it'* the one, then this is the intake that I had trouble with.

Got any pics of this setup? I may end up just trying to build one, any chance you can list where you got everything and price?

I'll get pics up tonight. It'* basicly 4" ZZP or Intense tubing from the TB (using a 3.75" to 4" rubber adapter) to the fender hole, then a 4" outer diameter PVC coupler from the hose to the 90 degree silicon coupler in the fender well. Use another PVC coupler to attach the filter to the silicon coupler.

Cost:

4" tubing from ZZP $40.38 shipped *I ordered four feet, you only three*
2- PVC couplers $6.00
2- SS 4" clamps $7.00
1- 9" filter $30.00

Total= $83.38

That'* the one-piece pictured. There'* an option for a 2-piece based on a fell-founded suggestion I made to him when he was developing it. I'd strongly encourage you to go with the 2-piece. There'* ample engine flex under heavy load/launches.

From just over a year ago:

From my standpoint as an outsider looking in, I see a pretty exlusive market for 3 model years. 2000-2003. Very few have the solid motor mount, and those are the only ones that could consider it. But with some flex in the middle, and a bushing in that hole, it would work for all 3 years regardless of mounts.

The INTENSE FWI is 3.5", but that'* due (perhaps) to the fact that the tubing isn't perfectly smooth inside. Close, but not as smooth as what you have. There'* some potential here, but still a pretty exclusive market.

Again, not a problem at all for me, Im willing to make changes or add options to accomodate and broaden the market. Thanks for your help,

Now we're talking. The L36 outnumbers the L67 by 10:1 for each year. I like the idea of adding it as an option rather than jacking the price for all, but I still think the 'hump' (I like the term) should be a recommended option for L36 and L67 without the solid motor mount.

Keep in mind these pics of Rod Rounds' intake are evidence in a criminal trial. Rod sucked 4 small children, 2 cats and a pygmy goat into his engine last summer.
