    I bought and have that kit on my car.
    1.5 years of use and no leaks or problems anywhere; I wouldn't have done it any other way.

    Did you notice a good gain with this kit? $500 is alot, but i like to do it w/o the risk of leaks. Which is the reason i got a nonpi intake when my stock broke.

    after you buy it, you will be happy...alot more poor than the same guy who used the thumbnail size spot of rtv, but happy none the less.

    you hardly have to use any rtv at all. like scarface said, just about a thumbnail size dab. had mine on for six months and everything is perfect. but it is completely up to you. youll love it either way. good luck

    I made 177/245 with some bolt-ons before the swap. I made 194/250 after the swap and had the car tuned at the same time. I put on an offroad-x about a month ago and had it dyno'd again, 199.5/262. A 5 speed is going in as we speak and I'm hoping to be in the 215-220/275 range.

    Thats the kit I bought and am completely happy that I am broke because of the kit. No worries, just throw it on! I picked up 30rwhp with that kit.

    Sounds about right, I'm at 229/280 through a 5 speed with the mods in my sig. The car screams all the way to redline now.

    Thanks guys. you guys own :thumb: 1 more question. This intake is modified with the second sensor pre-drilled right? We need this to be easy as possible and going to a machine shop is out of the question.

    It's been a while since it was installed, but I don't remember having any problems with senders.

    I thought the same thing and after paying someone to do it (I watched the entire process) it wasn't complicated at all.

    well, i personally tried it before when swapping my nonpi cracked to a new nonpi intake. Got halfway and had to let someone else do it :'( Thats old news though. The only work i do on my car is oil/midpipe. I can do the catback also, but never installed one personally.

    I understand.
    At the time I felt more comfortable paying someone to do it that mad more experience/knowledge than I; plus I needed it for DD purposes and couldn't afford to have it down for days on end.
