ebay SRi

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7951975411&category=38634

this Intake looks almost exactly like an Injen Short Ram. it also says it has 2.5in piping not 2.75 in pipe so it might have less bogging problems. anyone see anything wrong with this Intake?

Doesn't look like it comes with vacuume tubing. You'll need that or you'll throw a CEL. Also, ebay parts aren't assured to fit right, and aren't as high of quality. It's up to you, if your willing to risk it for 20 bucks then do it.

get it dude.. i dont want to repeat myself cause i wrote this 19 billion pargraph post on this subject about ebay Intakes.. but yeah, trust me, get it. SRI's have low chance of CEl anyways... more of bogging but it's not a 2.75" so it should be okay. Also, about the vacuum tubing... you dont NEED it. well it'd be nice if you get one in the package.. but there's a couple things you can do. go to pepboys, autozone, kragen, etc. and buy a pack of 40 for like 2 bucks. BTW, the vacuum tube is to cover up the hole for the butterfly valve tubing. OR, you can do what i did. Leave that tube on the opening, and find a small screw and jam it in the other end of that tube... SEALING it. there ya go. ZERO $. and no, i did not throw a misfire CEL. im running strong and no bogging at all. On a ebay Intake. (AEM replica)

I was reading some of the tutorials on installing other Intakes and just wanted to make sure since it comes with no insturctions. the butterfly tube is plugged. the pressure sensors are left attached to tubes and mounted somewhere? adn that last large tube on the top is attached to the Intake?

I wasn't trying to rag on people who have ebay Intakes, just saying that when it comes down to it, real Intakes ARE higher quality.

ebay Intakes are just about the same as an expensive Intake the only difference no brand name, same results/gain!

yup yup..u're buying the brand name when you get AEM or Injen..same bogging/cel problems..well TPR are an exception..proven to have no cel or bogging..so look into that..plus it's a SRI and CAI all in one..convertable..so if ya gonna spend 200+ bucks on AEM or Injen, y not just spend 200 on TPR..u get 2 in 1..whereas AEM and Injen are just 1 piece..contact Easy_C if you want to spend that much..

I would totally get a TPR if I knew I could get it in a timely fashion but he recently said there are more shop problems and I don't want to wait forever. if you get an Ebay CAI and do the Blue bomber mod to it and then cut it in half and add another coupler you can probably switch between CAI and SRI and not have bogging for a fraction of the price.
