Default Nothin' ya'll haven't seen before...(intake)

Well, my RX-4750 came and....well, I finally used that intake pipe that has been in my trunk for a few months. 4 cuts with a hack saw, several minutes with a soldering iron (IAT hole), and a bit of pushing and shoving later, we have our selves a short ram.

(don't mind the fact that the IAT isn't plugged in...it was by the time I started it up...

First impressions:
1) Sounds sweet at cold idle.
2) I friggen hate it. Why? The roads are really icy and I have an even harder time getting traction while accelerating....isn't torque grand

In all seriousness though, it feels torquier, better throttle response, and I can't wait for dry roads.

WTG Logan...

Not sure how you held it down..or supported it..but the metal they give you will snap for the bracket...

I used a piece of extra long vacuum hose for flexing.
