Yessir. Two pipes from vibrant and you're set

I called this design months back and they called me out and said it was going to be something way different than the modern intakes

I like HR but I am not sold on this intake considered the fact this particular design has been done many times. The R&D that goes into HR products is top notch and I am sure something about the intake brings something to the table; besides the velocity stack filter kit over Skunk2's filter.

Be honest though... how many more "outside the box" intake designs do you think can come out for this car given the size of the engine bay? The only real option is a cheaper alternative to Gruppe M's cowl induction (which was done here years ago), and that really only benefits N/A bolt on builds. Anything more needs a 3.5"+ intake & corresponding mods to suck in enough air for cams, etc.

What I like about the HR design is that it doesn't seem as long as the Go Power or Rick's, which is nice considering how everybody's always paranoid about hydrolocking. I've already go a Go Power intake though, so no need to shop for another one with money I don't have.

That is true. Can't do much with a design that is proven already to work very well on this chassis. Just have to tweak little things here and there. It does look like it will sit higher up for the paranoid folks. I was kinda hoping they would use previous ideas from different chassis's and make a full reinforced silicone intake.

That would have been ideal to keep temps down.

The whole piece, no. I don't think so. Just after the maf adapter.

Edit: looking at it again, I think you might be onto something Alex.

Yes it does look 100% silicone, except for the MAF adapter. We get enough heatsoak from the IM. Thank you HR.

This means it will pass the burn your hand test. Any metal CAI or SRI, if it's unwrapped on a 80+ degree day, and you have just finished some spirited driving, pull over and let the car idle for about 30 seconds, then pop open the hood just grab a hold of the intake pipe.

Of course not all cars will be at stoplights...still though. My plethora of metal intakes have all registered about +35 to +50 degree IAT's over ambient temperature at idle and about +10 to +20 while driving on 75 to 90 degree days, lower IAT's only comming on slow, and at faster speeds...which can't be maintained for a daily driver. To put it in perspective...on a 85 degree day the engine is taking in about 140 degree furnace like air.

This intake will put the IAT's as close to ambient temps as the OEM airbox/icebox systems, with the bonus of the breathability of a 3.5" open filter element that has a shorter resonance point of most other CAI's, meaning more consistant power and response. 100% silicone is even better than wrapping an intake, which many of the best track cars do. My HPS hose never get's much warmer to the touch even on the hottest days in traffic. To have a performance intake all like this...spectacular.

If there is one intake worth a retune or to scrap an icebox intake this is it.
