I picked up mine on ebay for $280- bargain, thats the only reason why I have one atm.

They are really easy to install. Bang for buck you cannot go past the Typhoon airbox and lower snorkel.

I think that it would be so easy to make something like that for $50 bucks or less out of Fiberglass
And yes, it could look as good as these $450 dollar jobs if you take your time.
I'm gunna give it a go.
IMO many of these aftermarket Mods look cool & probably work well but they are an absolute rip off.

Itlooks alright.. but how it sits i dont like... the growler kit sits better i seen em up close...
an would prefer to keep parts from same company as i have throttle body from ss inductions too...
but not a bad substitute for 50bucks...
always good option...

Hey mate did you find much of an improvement from the bigger throttle body? its only 5mm bigger and costs like 700bux so wondering if its really worth it?

Edit - this was the cheapest site i could find, used to be $450 but they put the price up to $475 now but i got an email from the guy saying he would sell it to me for the $450

Yer man, even though it only little increasem but i got a 80mm for it instead 75mm..
they fit on from the xr8..
You def feel difference.. better repsonse in throttle..
i get a lil better fuel economy... i would say 750 is a bit steep for em..
but it up to urself...
yer the kit is expensive... will keep hunting around for cheaper one an keep yall posted..
