The copies are rough, but not terrible. They have a better coating, better hardware and gaskets however the casting both inside and outside is rough. Few hours with a dermel and all will be good.

U don't know shit about my old car. LMAOO

1turbofocus What people done understand is the Cosi intake that you can buy was designed for the 2.3 not the 2.0 , Cosworth did make a 2.0 design but they never sold them , I have 2 of the10 finished prototypes and sold 2 of them years ago

They were never designed to be used on a stock engine , for best results , 11.5+ compression , cams , header , bigger Exh , the more mods you have the larger the gain from the Cosi Intake

I like the Cosi knock off Intake , it takes a little labor but most have more time then money

sailor Actually made for higher RPM gains N/A, works as a turbo manifold for higher boost than the plastic one can handle - not primarily for the purpose.

Knock offs aren't as well made, takes some work to make them functional.
