Be willing to let us take your intake out of the car

We anticipate the pricing for this intake to be substantially lower than $600.

When the intake arrives we'll take better photos of it.

We plan to also have a non-CF version as well for a little less money.

ElSupremo asked me to ask you if it's actually a Simota, or just some cheap generic copy that is labeled as a Simota, like you guys have done with some of your other products.

I'm just a messenger, Grintsaig.

pardon my ignorance, but I dind't know Simota was that famous to warrant such a claim

I see a point in making ACS, Hamann, MGruppe replicas, but Simo who? (have I lived under a rock for too long?)

oh yeah, ditto on ksfrogman's remarks.

Some people also told me to tell you that you can never escape Einhander's tiny vagin0r, but that you already know that.

No refunds, of course.

Of course at that point Habbie will have joined under another name to defend him, and call the customer a retarded, lying shitbag.
Par for the course.

Those are just a few. Not sure if there's any repeats. A search on any of those forums should tell enough, and that's not counting lord knows how many deleted threads. There has to be multiple dozens deleted on bfc alone.

if you honestly believe that you can expect 20HP out of ANY intake, you are either high or really high

you'd be lucky to get 5hp, and that's wishful thinking, people buy intake mostly for the sound. To expect any significant gains in HP is just not realistic and setting yourself up for a major disappointment
