Unlike the competitions silicone intake tubes, there is no flexing, collapse under pressure, or issues with fitment. As well, this intake pipe was designed to use all your factory hoses. No additional hardware is needed. Agency Power supplies you with 2 options for coupler sizes. One is for the stock 2.5 inch turbo compressor inlets and one for upgraded 3 inch turbo compressor inlets. Each inlet tube kit includes hose clamps as well. This inlet pipe will fit to most short ram and cold air intake kits. It also fits the factory intake pipe. Turbo inlet pipes are available in wrinkle red or fully polished. Each intake pipe includes the black silicone couplers.
I bought this pipe as I was doing an engine build and already had my intake manifold off. I wanted a good inlet pipe that I wouldn't have to worry about collapsing. Let me just say, even with already having the manifold of this was a pain to install. Absolutely no instructions or any type of literature included with this (almost $300) part. Silicone coupler had to be trimmed and it still doesn't fit correctly. The one other review here should not be trusted, if you look at the picture the bracket on the pipe is not lined up and the power steering pump is not installed. Once it's time to install power steering pump is where most of my problems started. If I hadn't scratched it up trying to install I would return it and just go silicone. Because of this I will never buy another agency power product again. I will say that import image racing is great, customer support is unbeatable.
