    FAST question

    ok so i have a quick question. for those of you who dont know my engine just hydro locked. now i just pulled my intake off and noticed that the bottom of it looks alittle warped. i guess i shouldnt say warped, its just up a little higher in the back. are they supposed to be like this or did my intake get effed? its not that bad but is it suppose to be %100 flat? Thanks

    How would that happen? Did the engine overheat extremly bad prior to it ceasing up? I know its plastic and all but I dont think it would warp unless it got extremly hot. I googled images but could not find a good pic of the back or bottom. I have one but its been a few years since I have seen it uninstalled. Sorry.

    no not any amount of high heat. and like i said it might not be "warped". its just that close to the back it has like a curve just on the bottom. i dont think that its anything structural and i dont remember what it was like beofre i installed it even though it was only a month ago so i guess ill just put it back together after i finish painting it and give it a try. who knows. thanks for the input

    But after only 100 miles of use? and i would have though that if it was caused by the hydro lock it would have pushed it out not sucked it in. I think ill just call them today. Thanks for the help though

    Those intakes can take upwards of 500* before they even show signs of warping. I know for a fact that a stock intake wont start to cave in until 550* All in the name of experimentation of course.
