Thats a bit harsh Tupperware lol? Put them on bf you talk the smack. I was very impressed with my scoops and the performace gains I made. RPI makes the best products in the game hence the reason why my car i all RPI. I have only had good experiences with RPI and all they care about is performance and proven results!

I cant say whether or not they offer a performance gain but It would definitely not be worth 200 dollars! You are better off cutting apart a tupperware container and glueing it together in this shape! please don't waste your money on rpi scoops!!!!!

just to let you guys know I am aware that this is my fault more than anything else! However, i contacted **********s and they claimed that they were unaware of rpi's price reduction. So, they are giving me a 100$ store credit to make up the difference!I am happy with this and am ok with the company now!

They probably only really do something at 80 mph +, so why waste money?

I personally would have asked for a $100 refund and not a store credit for a mistake on there part, unless you going to buy something else from them later down the road.

Intake scoops are meant to produce gains with higher speed. Normally the air would hit the grills and you're limited to how much air the intake pulls in from the surroundings. With the scoop the air flow will be "caught" and forced into the intake
channel increasing the amount of air the intake can take in. The faster you're going the more air will be pushed in. A good test of it's function would
be 6th gear pulls on the freeway. I noticed an improvement over stock on my
Z and saw it on the dyno

On a side note kind of sad mod bargains didn't change their pricing once their "error" was pointed out to them..lol
