Go with TPR (but I dunno when you would get it) or go with a cheapo eBay Intake.

if you have only 200, then go TPR. it'll cost you EXACTLY 200 shipped. you'll have to wait a while, but it's the best and cheapest good CAI

holy crap easy, do you guys have your own magazine? cause i swear i saw a tpr magazine but i didnt think it was you guys. the only reason i looked at it was cause it was advertising an Intake that supposedly added maybe 7hp rofl i dont remember what it was exactly but the Intake was called "weapon r"

i prolly asked this already somewhere, but are all the tpr stuff legal? oh and i checked out the website, how come the CAI and Short Ram are different categories, i thought you guys made an Intake that was convertable to both?

lol The CAI is convertable to SRI. but some people only want the SRI. I might just eliminate that all together for production costs.

The TPR stuff will pass emissions but isnt CARB legal. But that only applies to CALI anyway.

the exhaust is. the dB level is legal.

CARB is a stupid sticker that cali requires to not get a ticket. It doesnt seem to affect my customers tho. My Intake will pass emissions inspection.
