Anyone try this intake?

I saw this on ebay and was wondering if anyone has tried this out and if it good or not.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=2458732903

i dunno if its even for an svt for sure, as it looks just like his Zx3 kit.

if it is infact for an svt is it worth the money?

The bends in the tubing look like they would fit an SVT, but you better email him. I haven't used this intake, but I'd consider carefully. It's roughly $100 now and shipping is $22. So, you would have $122+ into an intake you've never seen up close before. It may work great, like an AEM or whatever, but it may also be terribly constructed. IMO, I'd save the money and get a better intake...or keep watching ebay for some good used stuff.

I ordered this intake

on the 17th of January. I still have not recieved it. I finally got a tracking number yesterday, so at least it's on the way. I should get it tuesday. I will put it on and let you know what I think after I've driven it. I will be installing a bypass valve so the engine doesn't flood in the rain.
ANYONE know where I can buy one? Or do I have to make one?

AEM makes the bypass valves in a few different diameters. Check their website to see what they have and where you can buy one. Anyone who carries AEM will be able to get a bypass valve. Let us know about the quality of the intake and what kind of gains you get.

looks like the svt equivalent of the bomz intake, with a k&n filter. we definitly do not get a k&n filter.

I see everyone talking be carefull with the CAI and rain,Las Vegas has been hit with alot of rain in the last month. I was worried at first but I have had no problems whats o ever with water locking on my AEM system.It is almost impossible unless the whole intake is completely submerged, I wouldn't sweat it.

Exactly. Unless you go fording streams and rivers, you shouldn't have any problems. I haven't known anyone local to hydrolock their engine with a CAI under normal street driving.
