"Intake 14 inch for the larger kits, Brushed Aluminum Tube with Custom Rough Finish (for the big boys…NOT the polished sissy look)." That is what sold me! I am no sissy boy!

lol! here's a great quote that sums it up...

"Some people are born suckers, or "super consumers" as I like to call them. After a generation of padded playgrounds, child leashes, bicycle helmets, dolphin-safe tuna, warning labels, and other anti-natural selection initiatives, a new breed of super moron has come into being. They are a cash crop waiting to be harvested. Sell them your Tornado, your Electric Supercharger, your Miracle Octane Booster, Engine Rebuild in a Can, Deionized Holy Radiator Water or whatever. They'll buy anything. You can get a plastic baggie, fill it with air, and tell them that there's a ghost in it. They'll buy it. You can probably sell a used toothpick on Ebay for $25 to one of these fools."

"In short, they're selling it because somebody's buying it."

[sarcasm]yeah, but at least this one's so light that it doesn't rob your engine of power instead of using the gear drive[/sarcasm]

this one, instead, will block air from properly getting sucked into your intake, thus probably doing more bad than good

If u act now they will send you two so you can put one on your exhaust to "suck" the exhaust out of your engine. Just imagine that rear mount turbo sound.

All you would need now is the electric blow off valve sound.

Yeah they got a stock sentra to run 13's before the motor blew. But their product actually has thought to it. The only downside is that u have to carry extra batteries to power it but you do get around 30 seconds of boost.
