HIA Intakes are here

OK gang, after several different trials on the short ram intakes, I have finally found one that works for me.
And hopefully for you to!
Here are the pics:





Slightly larger diameter than the Steeda, also relocated the oil vent connection to under the curve of the tube for better asthetics as well as placing the vented gas in the main section of the flow. This is a cotton mesh filter, non oiled, so no maf contamination worries.
The setup comes with all the boots, clamps and filter, and will utilize the stock or aftermarket maf. Also please notice that the filter extends a bit farther into the opening where the stock airbox used to be. It is actually TIGHT in there, thus the rattle and flex from other short rams have been eliminated. Retail is going to be $150 shipped.

As for now, I can get the polished, black powdercoated, and red powdercoated. I am working with them to see if they can match the sonic blue, screamin yellow and comp orange as well.

Oh, filter question too. When that becomes dirty, replace or can it be cleaned and reused?

Replacable filter. I havent put the cost on them yet, but it will be very cost effective vs the higher priced oiled version.

These seem kinda rediculous to me....i mean 150$ for a 90degree pipe...and yeah i know that this is how much they all go for, but it seems like something this simple wouldnt cost much to manufacture. The cold air system seems much more complex, but i still dont belive its worth 300 dollars, not trying to bash or anything because im still about to call you for a tune but it seems like if this was sold for half the price it would take the place of everyother short ram, along with changing the minds of potential CAI buyers ??

looks good - any chance you could fit a K&N filter on the end of those?

Then get a business license, and front the money to cover the cost of having these made, or you can try and resell them, but the end cost to the consumer is going to be the same. Wayne has spent his time trying to engineer a product that is specific for the SVTF enthusiest. If it seems rediculous to you, then don't buy it. But don't come here knocking a product that someone has spent their own time working on in the hopes that they help out the community.

In other words, and as your parents probably told you as a kid, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all.

oh and wayne didn't just toss an elbow and paper filter on, this has been in the works for months for something called SVT specific R&D

kudos to him, it just replaced the K&N typhoon on my list of toys, although like i said i hate paper filters and will try to find a universal to fit on there

hopefully he gives me the dimensions i'd need so i can find the closest fit on K&N's site.

I am sure you can get a replacement K&N if you wanted, but if the filter IS in fact that cheap to replace then there is no need for it. I also can vouch for him having worked his *ss off in the design of it. He has engineered something and spent LOTS of money through R&D. IT WILL WORK, lol. He doesn't just through something out there that HE himself wouldn't buy. I already have one of these on the way, and I will tell you how I like it. I am sure i will, but just look at the other short rams, they either have that unsightful Breather tube on the side, and have the rattle issues at idle and with the engine torque. Also it IS a little bigger than the steeda intake which means more airflow, I am sure he didn't just decide to make it bigger there must have been a little more to gain out of a bigger tube. I also thinkg the biggest reason he is going with a cotton filter, is because the filter is located SO close to the MAF sensor and if you had a K&N filter the oil would be HORRIBLE and cause u to clean the MAF almost daily probably. just my thoughts. Congrats Wayne on gettin it out. Buy on peeps.
