Injen SUCK!
After my Intake cracked after 2 months of use i was pretty pissed at Injen. But now i have contacted them numerous times by email and a few times by phone with no response. Sure they may have a lifettime warranty but it does no good if you cant even contact them. I will never do business with them again and encourage everyone to buy from AEM or Blitz. I wasted 200 dollars on a piece of scrap metal and a License Plate holder that i was ashamed of and took off.

"lifetime warranty" almost always means lifetime of the product, not yours which can vary from one company to another. happywink

I have Injen SRI also, only 1 month. Looks like yours broke on the vibra-mount weld. Possible it wasn't installed on the rubber vibration mount correctly causing it to metal fatigue and break around the weld? I'm going to check my vibra-mount tomorrow to make sure it's right. Maybe it would be a good idea

Yes i have heard many things about Injen. I wasnt even so mad when the actual product broke but after trying to reach them many times and nothing is when i really got pissed. Now after weeks of trying to contact them and no response i have givin up. I am just trying to help others not to have to go throught the same thing i did.


**The Intake was installed correctly i had a friend who is a licensed mechanic come supervise me as a did it.

Sorry Spyder, don't think I was ripping on your install, just thought metal fatigue could be a possibility.

its cool man

Maybe i was a little out of line putting this thread up all together. I really meant it just to make others aware of my stand on the thing. But kinda turned out into an all out bash of Injen.

Yeah, good luck man. IMO, Injen should fix this because they are a good company. And since most people either say to get Injen or AEM, they must be good.

how is over reving going to make a hole on the Intake confused

No one is saying that Injen makes bad products, but it looks like it's a factory defect, so Injen should step up with their life time warranty & help a brother out. What's the point of having a warranty if you're not gonna follow through?

Nate had a hole on his CAI & I'm sure he installed it right, he's not that dumb to install it wrong grin

I also had a hole in my CAI after only 3 months and my bracket busted right off. Mine was also installed correctly.
