there is a lot of controversy over this product and i just wanted to know.... the fake J`s racing intake is 80bux from a place online and i had a few ?`s about it.......

1)is this intake between a CAI and a SRI, because of the fact it is short, but it has a larger chamber so more intake velocity and air can build???

2)does anyone have it that has ABS, cause i heard u cant use it if u have ABS?????

P.S.- thnx in advance.....

you have to be a moron to hydro lock your motor.

its a sham(no one beleives me) look at who sells these bypass things tho... the intake companies..

at any rate the fake j's vs j's pipe is like comparing an apple to an award winning show apple.

it will do the same job of alowing the air to slow and gain back some of its pressure at the throttle plate where its most desireable.

J's or fake J's make the basis for a decent pipe.

the filter still sucks like all "intake kits" however.

I have the fake J's intake and I love it.

I had an AEM Cold air before and the AEM was a piece of crap.

However you're right, I heard it won't fit with ABS.

And I kinda think the air is colder than most CAI''s because it's made of ABS plastic and it takes air from the very corner of the engine bay, right behind the pass. headlight

I got one of the ugly colored ones from sportcompactonline.com

I just can't bring myself to spend more than about 60-80 bucks on an intake....
