Default What do you guys think about these I found

I was just looking for some inexpensive mods to do for now.

This intake from ebay has a k+n filter and in very cheap thought I'd ask. I would also build a barrier for it. There were some other nice AEM and K+N intake systems but none specifically for a bonneville.

This is a link I found through another forum Just thought I'd ask some opinions. I read the "what it is" link and seems prety legit to gain 15-20 hp. Can't afford *.C. or turbo for a while.

Thanks for looking

Check the Mythbusting area for more information behind the turbonator, fuel magnets etc etc.

It seems hard to believe they can sell that setup with a genuine K&N filter for that price. A genuine K&N filter of that type would cost that much by itself. Ask the seller if the coupler is rubber or silicone. Silicone is preferred. Also, is there an opening in either the filter or the tube for your IAC? Other than that, I can't comment on the quality of the set-up except to say he is ripping you on the shipping cost. Others will certainly chime in.

You mean IAT, not IAC. Most members here who buy intakes have to drill that hole and use a rubber grommet. You will have a hard time finding an online pipe that has the hole, or if it does, it'* rarely the right size.

If it really comes with a filter, it looks like a good deal in spite of the inflated shipping costs. But it won't gain you what it COULD until you fully shield it from engine bay heat.

The turbonator will be a restriction in your intake.

The bend on the aluminum pipe looks a little tighter than ideal, and the filter isn't the "filter of choice", but aside from that, it looks alright.

And, what everyone else said about the turbonator.
