Expensive pigeons you got there.

I think the inner diameter of the intake elbow is slightly larger than OEM. Either way, I don't believe in it, especially not for $900. Besides, my exhaust setup would overpower the sound of the intake anyway.

Having said that, if you can justify it, then good for you
