I knew someone would grab it up and you got it a great price. Who knows how few more are going to be made, even though its a high quality, really necessary mod "IF" you're to the point of making big horsepower and need that last finishing touch. Plus it has no moving parts, so its basically unbreakable. Simply put, a cooler air charge and more of that cooler air is "NICE". Makes me feel all warm & fuzzy just thinking about it.

If I had a turbo PT I wouldn't wait til way down on the list to do this mod.

Yeah i got a lot of stuff sitting in the house waiting to go on the 5speed. Looking for around 350-400hp when im done. I got that quaif lsd tha was for sell on here too

Should be a good matchup for the spec3+ clutch kit that was all ready here. Now i just got to keep how much i have spent over the last few months a secret from my wife

You can always add W/I and a DSP to cool your charge and pick up way more HP than an IC...Cheaper too...

Good info!!!

Some members do not know the shorts?
W/I = water injection.
DSP= digital signal processor

True with meth and tune you can gain more power but without a safety net, car can go boom and with a safety net, you loose that power until you refill.

With a larger/better intercooler its always safe and power is always there.

Yes that is also true but vipergts was talking about Water Injection which has no cons. Even if you run out of water you should still be within operating perimeters. And if you aren't then you did not set up you engine properly to begin with.
