I paid around 60 dollars Canadian. I had a bidding war on ebay and won. So it was quite a great deal. It sounds really nice when driving.

I also like the fact that not many people own this type of intake. But I'm always happy to share what I own.

I don't have any numbers of gained hp but I do notice a quicker response on acceleration. I will try to have a video of what it sounds like. But if you don't mind a deep tone on acceleration you'll love this intake.

I see that the system is just a filter/CF pipe/angle? Also added the crankcase filter. Are there any other pipes/sensors that need readjusting? I have been thinking of making my own CF box, since I have a 3" K&N cone already. Just haven't explored taking out the entire stock system yet.

edit: ah, I see the MAF(?) connection on the angle tube now. Is that it?

there is no MAF, just an IAT sensor which you only need a small rubber gromet to mount into a tube..
