yeah, speak to fuzion, that or go along to exhaust shops around your area, tell 'em what you want, and they should be able to make it up for you! AFAIK, all exhaust shops *should* be able to do them for you reasonabley cheap...

Just be careful with the local exhaust shops, I had one make up some piping for my intercooler, Ran the car for about 10-15 K's then a stange banging noise came from the engine, it ended up been a lump of slag, he didnt clean out the pipes. Bent valves, scored pistons and head was the Result. $700 and a stack load of work, and I'm back to where I should of been 2 weeks ago...

Cheers

I'm extremely happy with the setup from JMM. Alot will argue that its too expensive, but it is dyno proven (allbeit on the JMM dyno). I noticed a massive jump in fuel consumption - so it must do its job :D

Its finished in the beatiful High Lustre Ceramic finish, nicely matches up with ceramic coated extractors. They also include a pod filter and adapter to use in your standard airbox. They claim the comination of the Intake, Filter and Race Series extractors are worth ~15-20RWKW on a Dev5 engine.

Screamer, just a note, what other mods have you done? I had a 3" stainlless intake on my EF Fairmont for a while as I bought it in a group buy with some other friends. It made no difference to my car. I had it running a pod filter in factory air box with AU XR8 snorkel, and as I only had cat back exhaust no extractors, I noticed no difference.

Just food for thought

I agree. I've been messing with the inlet for months, and whilst some small gains can be made, it's the cam/head that's really limiting the flow in. Also without an equally flowing exhaust, there's going to be a backpressure problem. It is cheaper and easier than lifting the head though.......and you do convince yourself the car is absolutely hammering after half an hour with the dremel......

It would matter when the head and cam were no longer the limiting factor.

JMHO. :roll:
