There are two types of the intakes that are available the 69(aka Typhoon) & the 57 intake. The Typhoon intake is the current model that you can purchase. The 57 intake is due out in a couple of wks - supposedly still in the the R&D stages.

You can find a slightly used Typhoon intake in the For Sale/Wanted section - since a few members are getting rid of it for personal reasons.

Check the attached link for dyno results of BOTH intakes and a very detailed write-up from a guy who had both intakes on his own car. Take it for what its worth - both intakes provide a very nice hp improvement...

well from what i know the K&N intakes give out the most horsepower and is the most reliable....in terms of an intake it's the best bang for the buck..... :beer:
