    my JDM EG6 intake.. look at the difference in the tube size and the insulation in the JDM box....

    it will go well with my BLOX manifold and bored TB.. and the Hondata intake gasket to keep it nice and cool..

    I'd be careful with it...if it's that thin, it's VERY possible for it to crack and fall off where your intake tube is bolted on. I've seen it happen more than once...

    yeah...


    happened on a buddy of mine's turbo mirage. had his 52mm TB bored out to 60mm, tightened the T-clamp too much and a piece of the TB dropped into the motor ultimately fucking a valve hardcore. luckily nothing else was damaged!

    Haha, Danny's mirage...Me and Ryan helped him put the head back on, and diagnose a fucked valve.

    yeah and then idiot gave me the wrong timing mark and ultimately fucking up the valves again!

    then we blamed the machine shop and they fixed everything for free minus parts :)
