I got a new intake pipe
from ebay yesterday. dsmtuners.com tells you that it's the first step you should take (along with a conical air filter) when modding your car. However, I'm finding out that most intake pipes don't really do anything for a turbo 2g DSM. The Injen intake (which is very similar to the intake I got) is dyno proven to not increase horsepower. The only thing that it does is look cool and make the turbo/BOV sound cooler.
There were also a lot of things wrong with this product from importblowoutsales. First I noticed that the inside is very very rough
, but I guess this makes no difference. Even the Injen intakes look this way. Then I noticed that this might not seal very well
. Also, only 1 of the hose clamps fits over the larger end... even though I need 2. The hose that connects the bottom of the intake to the turbo is also much too large
. Stupid ebay. I'll need to go out and buy new hose and clamps just to get this to fit. Even though importblowoutsales claims that this "FITS ONTO ALL ECLIPSE 1995 - 1999 TURBO GST / GSX TURBO MODELS", "EASY TO INSTALL!", and "CNC Machined SOLID Aluminum. Guaranteed to produce up to 5-7 Horse Power!"
