    Professional Products Typhoon REVIEW READ!!

    I have purchased a Professional Products Typhoon 85mm intake and Throttle body combo about 2 weeks ago and started the install last night. The fitment on this intake is horrible. The gasket are even worse...I have had this intake off 2x's thinking I was missing something or doing something wrong....or there was something wrong with my car. I installed the factory intake back on and car runs perfect. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY AT ALL!

    My review on this setup:

    --HEAVY
    --HOT
    --BAD FITMENT
    --HORRIBLE GASKETS

    Im in the process of trying to return my setup that I purchased from Maryland Speedworks and getting a FAST setup. I am not bashing Maryland Speedworks at all! They have great customer service and hopefuly this will understand my problem and work with me to get it solved.

    ....all in all a huge waste of time...but I can swap intakes in about 30min now...

    Thanks,
    Evan

    Seen the issues firsthand.

    Friend decided not to even bother putting it on after a test install.
