Macht Schnell Stage II Intake Review

It was finally time to replace my Technocraft intake for something more durable and didn't involve me wrapping electrical tape around the intake manifold (hated this)

It was very eye appealing but other than that just a pain in the butt.

So when it came time finding a replacement I had the following criteria:
1. nothing to outrageously expensive
2. fit well and needed no other modifications (like the technocraft)
3. Looked good
4. overall a good reviews on the unit.

So after reading about the many different intake setups I finally decided to go with the Macht Schnell setup.

Here is why I went with it:
1. Price
2. Overall look of it matches up with stock so it looks like it just belongs there
3. Great reviews on the unit

So I called up Tom@EAS and he was able to help me place my order. It took a few days to get (Big ups to the EAS crew, they sent me tracking info minutes after I had placed the order)

Here is what the kit looked like (stole this picture from VS Motorsports)

The install was very easy, very straight forward.
The only issue I had was removing the spring, but once I figured it out the whole unit went in without a problem.

I know many of you guys might be like why would you buy it? and what about the issues that some have had?

Well, my install went fine, yes there was points where I thought fitment was off, but it was me not pushing piece together, and once I did install went perfect. If your looking for a good priced kit, Macht Schnell is the way to go!
