looking more like a car everytime i check on it.
btw i'd try to find an iceman intake for a zx3 or something. that short ram just looks a little cheesy to me.

i get what you're saying but the original intake on the contour wasn't all that much longer.

there isn't much space to route something anyways but i'll look into it.

also if you read the backstory my cold air intake is what got me into this predicament in the first place.

nah ur fine i didn't mean to post it to discourage, ment it as more of a thing to encourage him since he is getting so freakin close, just wanna see it up and drive able you know what i mean! sorry i deffinatly didn't mean to post that to make any one mad, just wanted to offer some encourage ment since i'm giving up on it my self.

and mike reason i have kinda lost the motivation is that my svt can make the same power as the v6 with way less hassel, and what not. and will still have all of the creature comforts and what not. you know what i mean? i'm willing to sell ya what every you want off of it tho mike. pm me if ur interested in any of it.
