INTAKE'D!!! posted

I got a new intake pipe from ebay yesterday. 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!"
