This is a discussion on Did anyone buy the air intake from FTP within the Parts Review forums, part of the Sponsors Group Pricing and Parts Review category; I have a lid and I just ordered the air dam I guess I would call it the metal piece ...

    I have a lid and I just ordered the air dam I guess I would call it the metal piece that brings the air in from outside

    It was cheap enough 79 shipped is it crap or ok product. I guess it's to late now I already ordered it but how is it????

    I had one on my car for years. I added a screen mesh under the car to keep leaves and stuff from sucking up into the filter.

    If anyone is interested I still have the FTRA / Stealth Lid / RA attachment.
    Of course for a price.

    I doubt I'll need it ever again. My new ram air set up is supercharged

    any air intake system that pulls air from the engine bay will actually REDUCE your horse power. It has been demonstarted time and again with the dyno. You get a slight increase with the hood up but once you close the hood you get a significant drop in HP due to pulling in all the superheated engine bay air. Since you drive with the hood down......well you see the problem.

    Email me and I'll give you a good price. Rather give it to a bud that uses the nice set up than it sitting in a storage bid. I loved it until I got a SC. I'd say $100 for the $350 set up.... All the sheetmetal foam and picture to build it included.
