    A buddy just emailed me and asked if I was interested in his P-51 intake. He swapped to a 4v setup and doesn't need the intake. He said it would give between 20-25 hp and you could really feel it in the mid range. I can get it for $400. I am in the process of getting a saleen blower setup so I would only be using this intake for 4 or 5 months. Would it be worth buying for that short period of time since I wouldn't be able to use it with the Saleen setup?

    Those intakes really require some heavy modding (ie. heads/cams/FI) for them to shine. They are overkill on a nearly stock car and might hurt performance, not increase it.

    That is good to know. If I was using something besides the Saleen setup I would get it.

    If he's willing to give it to you for a decent price, take it.....then turn around and sell it for a good heavy price ;)

    I don't think that fits under a stock hood either. May want to double check that.
