i might sell mine if i ever get around to changign it. I need to get a new one first. I think im going to start with a fresh new one again and paint it up silver like the flapless one then swap em out. I like how it looks just not how it performs.

I put alot of time into the flapless one.

I just switched it back yesterday (July 9 2013) the bottom end got a little better and there is no hesitation now from idle to the pickup.

I drove the flapless intake for a little over a year only had Tom adjust it a few times then left it.

I did notice when i had some nice cool days it ran alot better for some reason.

Maybe if i had Tom adjust it more it would of got better. Its hard with an auto transmission you cant play around with the RPMs like a manual.

The flapless intake was still better above 3K once i got to 3K it pulled better then the stock one. The only problem is the auto trans likes to shift around 3K and under it seems like. Only when i really step into the throttle will it run the RPMS up and i just dont drive like that enough to justify the sluggienss of daily driving with it.

It was fun to do though, i had fun building it and playing around with it.

Ill get some pictures of the intake and post them in the F/S section later. I kept all the stuff i used and bought all new stock stuff for the new intake.
