Performance, Brainstorming & Tuning Talk about modifications, or anything else associated with performance enhancements. Have a new idea for performance/reliability? Post it here. No idea is stupid! (please use Detailing and Appearance for cosmetic ideas)

High KR with just an intake? Enough to hear pinging/rattling?? I'm sorry, but it sounds like something else is up. You should be able to run with only the MAF screen without a drastic difference like that.

At any rate, my main issue is how ugly that hose is.

A FWI is by far the best performance solution for our 3800'*.

The INTENSE FWI was not designed to be a show piece, it ws designed to perform and it does it with aplomb. The material of the hose has a "fabric" feel which does not heat soak, is super rigid yet flexible, with great flow characteristics on the inside. It allows for motor torque and travel (unlike rigid metal tube types) and comes with custom hand made silicon TB adapter and top quality clamps, connectors and K&N Air Filter. It will not bang around in the engine bay causing unwanted noise, it will not rust, pit, corrode etc... and in my opinion is a fair price for the quality and performance of the kit.

As always, I just try to give the facts and let those who have them speak for the quality and performance of our products. I realize that there are those who feel this site is biased towards us and that it seems we are the only vendor but I believe the reason for that is that once the "vendor hatred" is removed from the buying process people see the quality and performance of the various available options and gravitate towards the best ones.

I believe that the noise was the injector relays resonating through the metal intake.

Probably closer to $90 actually. It sounds like dbeast420 might be doing something similar as well.

Nice velocity stack.
Is that a 3.5" outlet? If so where was it purchased?

Tubing is being delivered by UPS tomorrow and will be on before I head to Raleigh this weekend.

I've already extended the IAT cable and have the sensor in the filter
I'm think I'm going to cut the 45* off of my rice pipe and use that as the coupler between the filter and the tubing

And if that doesn't work, just do what I did I had NOTHING to go with though - still works fine. I should note that 2' is all you need to order for anyone else reading. I ordered 3' and still had at least 14" left over.

yes it is a 3 1/2" to 6" velocity stack
try

http://www.turbohoses.com/

and

http://www.intakehoses.com/

ya, i said it was big. its a 3 1/2" o.d. pipe from the t/b to the velocity stack, my velocity stack goes from 3 1/2" o.d. to 6" o.d. then the 6" i.d. 90 Degree Elbow to my air filter. i have a vacuum gauge on the elbow to tell me when the air filter gets dirty(vacuum goes up on WOT) takes the guess work out of "is my filter dirty". and the inside of the whole thing(intake) is as smooth as a baby'* butt.
