interesting.. intakes are just bent pipe with a filter on them.. really if the fitment is good, then the filter would be questionable, but could easily be repleced

I would honestly stay away from anything non branded from ebay. If you want to do an intake for as inexpensive as you can go I would recommend the JWT popcharger. Its a great first mod.

I have seen a lot worse than that on some of these ebay stores. I saw a shorty antenna that cost $10 to ship. No way in **** that costs more than $5 to ship if that

remember if it sounds too good to be true, it is. that looks like a home depot/pep boys intake kit.

It's basically a short ram intake made by Jim Wolf Technology. You can buy it from most aftermarket stores for under $120 shipped. I have it, and it sounds and feels great. Just be warned that your gas mileage will decrease because you'll always want to be at WOT to hear that awesome sound and feel the little kick in the butt.

I think the old saying that you only get what you pay for applies here :doh: I agree it must be junk parts from somewhere...out behind the garage.

JWT only makes parts for Nissan, so thats why you never heard of it when you were shopping for your ford.

Like Josh said: if it's put together well it could be a good intake, but since there's no brand label on it, there's also no person losing face if it's a POS. Don't trust anyone you can't go after later if you need to.
