Well that's nice for the guys at the TI meet

Why bother participating in an Internet forum if you aren't going to share your opinion with people that can't make it there.

Are you sure you want them to see it - they might have negative opinions!

Grow a set!

Hey 1001, I tried to PM you but your PM box appears full. Thought that would be a respectful way to get your feedback on the Dinan intake. Maybe you can shoot me a PM when you have a moment to share your thoughts?

1001 why are you acting so childish and sensitive? we are just rambling because everything is idle and maybe brainstorming on how we can replicate one ourselves...

yea, pretty expensive. and the way it looks, is disappointing. but if it really makes 5-7 hp as dinan claims, that's a lot better than anything that's out there. the "fajita" and clone intakes robbed hp. simota made 1 hp. i believe the gruppe m was around 5 hp.

Man, if my arms were that hairy, I'd laser them (the hairs).

William, I just realized today that the GruppeM intake is completely open to the bottom portion that surrounds the brake duct. If you look at the top view, the edge of the intake covers the car's frame, but from that point to the fender well, it's open to the bottom. See photo:

I'm not completely sure I follow, but remember you ARE getting cold air already from the ram air scoops on the intake that reach over the radiator to get cold air at the front of the car. My intuition tells me that increasing the distance of the intake piping to the air filter might create problems with air velocity, resistance and ultimately, the MAF sensor readings.

do you think if the gruppe m cf intake box was completely closed off, it would be more efficient and yield better #s?

If you choose to bail on us, that's fine. But it does seem odd that you'd continue to post in the thread about how you're going to get it installed ... during the negative comments ... and then come back and post a naa naa boo boo on us for posting negative stuff.

Therefore I call and say you ended up listening to the negativity and ditched the intake at the last second.
maybe the product doesn't look that good or doesn't look like it worth the money, but the owner of that intake have right not to tell anyone how it feels. For those who want to know the performance and doesn't want to pay, one word "cheap"
