Default Pic of new intake

I got the new intake off ebay, 31 plus 12 for shipping. The pipe was precut for the air flow sensor and had a rubber grommet on it. It came with all the metal fasteners also. The filter is a midnight blue and is chrome on the top and bottom. It was so easy to install and makes such a louder growl. I took the picture at night thats why it sucks.

The best place for that filter is right behind your headlight, or build a helluva CAI/heat shield. That looks like the intake from a W body, which has a smaller engine compartment. The longer intake will also give you more laminar flow.

Not trying to bash you, I gaurantee you had a performance boost, but I'm saying there'* alot more to be had.

Now all you need is a longer pipe. The filter looks a bit small, but should be ok.
