It was missing the two main filters and the breather filter, but that was fine with me (old filters are usually beat to hell and I wanted red ones anyway). Paid about $100 for it and purchased new 7" filters and a crankcase breather filter from K&N (another $100).

    It looks sweet! I don't believe it's a performance improvement over a lid and filter, but it's better than stock. Oh... and did I mention it looks sweet! Particularly in my red WS6 engine bay!!

    BTW, the thin rubber seal around the box was designed to seal against a non-ramair hood. The thin rubber seal probably won't seal (or at least won't seal well) with a WS6 hood. I did the chewing gum test on mine and I had a couple of spots that had gaps. I ran down to Lowe's and picked up some brass pipe foam insulation for about $3 (it's gray and looks like those foam tubes kids beat the crap outta each other with). Measure off however much you need and since the foam is slit, it forms over the stock rubber seal great (looks like it came with the kit). It even has adhesive strips to hold it in place. My hood definitely seals to the box now.

    Very happy with the mod!

    Let me snap a few pics and I'll get them to you. I haven't got off my lazy ass and started my webpage, so I don't have any way of hosting them. I'll e-mail them to you. Is your e-mail address current? Actually, if someone has a way of hosting them and wouldn't mind...???

    No... don't know him. I'd give a couple days and see what happens. I eBay a lot and sometimes people just aren't great at communicating, but still get the stuff to you. Keep track of all correspondence and after you've reached your point of reason, contact PayPal and see what they do. They've treated me pretty good in the past.

    Also, I noticed he (zo6) only had one post (meaning his FS ad). Ya gotta be careful with people who come on a car forum and try to sell something as soon as they get there. That makes them highly suspect at best. That's why so many days went by with no one wanting anything from him.

    Best of luck,
    Marc

    I sent another e-mail to zo6, My son told me he has to go to Canada for business this week and he said if he is close to Canada he might stop by, maybe he can pick the intake up.

    Nice change in your Avatar looks good, no responses at all, no returned e-mails, no pm's, the only thing I noticed is he added SOLD to his for sale ad on the intake, All I could think was that with the holidays maybe they had a trip, plus slow shipping from the holidays. I sent a e-mail to him telling him my son will pick it up while he is in the area, maybe he should stop in anyway?

    It would be quite the surprise. I really hope he's legit and not tryin to rip you off, but I hope he also knows that he WILL get caught. You might even be able to get paypal involved, report him. Good luck man.

    Thanks by the way (avatar), I didn't mean to rub it in.
