Wow, $280.00???? What a rip=off! $280 to replace a plastic tube with a chrome one and put a cone filter on the end of it? Personally, I think I'll pass. Thanks for the pics though, I can definitely make my own now. One 90 elbo, one 45 elbow, one straight section, 3 couplings and a silicone bend at the TB.

Way over priced!!! Just pull out the airbox and pop on a $35 cone filter to the MAF and your done. Plus RSM's stuff isn't CARB legal.

I have to agree. A hot air intake would probably not work too well. The more length and bends in the intake tubing the more air velocity slows down. I would prefer someone to develop a way to relocate the battery to the other side of the car where it belongs and put a cold air box right next to the TB.

"carb" is C.A.R.B - California Air Resource Board. They certify aftermarket parts for adherence to California emissions standards, or rather that parts don't negatively affect a vehicle's emissions.

All the big boys seek CARB approval on parts. Anything else is technically "for offroad use only".

Correct, I bought the Injen because it's carb legal. NY now does emissions testing and I needed a carb legal intake plus if you have a warranty issue that the dealer might be able to blame is in direct relationship to the intake, having a carb legal one won't void your warranty.

By the way, where are the hard mounting points for the RMS intake? I don't see any on there. Does it just sit in there?

Pics of two mounting points on my Injen to compare to the RSM.

Just pointing out incorrect info. The intake must be proved to be the cause of the problem under the magnuson act. Carb legal is mainly needed in california where they have extremely strict emission laws. Granted being carb legal does help in the grand scheme of things, but it can still be the cause of a voided warranty if the dealer trys hard enough

As of 2004, New York now has air emissions testing on all OBDII vehicles, as does almost all other north eastern states now. If the inspector pops the hood and you don't have a CARB legal intake on, you fail emissions on the spot. As for warranty issues with intakes, the dealer will try to pin any emissions or air/fuel related engine issue on the intake if its installed when you take the car in. I've had it happen to me back in '99 with a '96 Beretta Z26. Back then, the engines were notorious for getting clogged EGR valves. I had an RSM intake on at the time and two dealers wouldn't touch the car at all. i had to put the stock intake back on and take it to a third dealer to have the problem fixed.

Dang, carb is moving along then. I was just pointing out that even with the carb legal intake, if they want a dealer could void your warranty. Now under a lawsuit they might get their butt handed to them

I had to do what you did above a couple of times, its pretty ludacris but it just saves frustration. Ive also been told plenty that so & so voided the warranty, but if I didnt want to replace the stuff I just used the good ole magnuson moss act / lawyer and got what I needed done. They hate when people know about that act
