One-off intake.

When I went out and bought the New-Era intake, I was very disappointed with the quality. So I bought the Lingenefelter intake, I was very happy with the quality and set-up and performance. The one draw back was it used the stock tube, which had the flex ribbing in it.

I went to TurboHoses in Dublin California and bet with the owner. He hand made an intake for me that utilizes the Lingenefelter heat shield. The new intake tube is approx. 4 inches in diameter (polished), he repositioned the MAF sensor, added a velocity stack (which goes from 6 inches to 4 inches) and a new air filter that has a cone center. The results...a freakin sweet intake...with a very noticeable increase in throttle response and all around power.

It set me back almost $500...mostly because of the chrome plating. I did not have to get it done, but it just looks much better. One person asked me about the heat soak...its not bad at all. I Just put it in today and drove it around alot. I live in Pleasanton, it gets pretty hot here. When at a stand still, ya it gets warm. But once i start going, the difference is huge. All in All, the heat soak is about the same as the Lingenfelter, but the performance is better throughout the power band.

The velocity stack is what does it, huge difference. 6 inches of air, funneled down to 4 inches. then a straight shot to the TB. He knows his stuff... WWW.TurboHoses.COM
