Advancements in Cold Air Intake Technology

Looks like drying machine hosing is the new way to go

This is a smarter solution than some of you spending 200 dollars on an 'airscoop' that costs 5 dollars to make.

that's the 240 life for you. you thrash it while drifting and give close to zero fucks about how it looks or what happens to it (although he must've spent good money on the kouki front). no true 240 owner drives without zipties in his car - fact. but i must say this is one of the more poorly executed ones i've seen. i'm buying an s13 vert shell for drifting that i'll cage and whatnot and after a few events will have zipties here and there (but not as shitty as this one)

Back in 1988 nobody made shit for my 1985 Supra so i had to make everything. I've had a similar cold air intake on my car. Home made adjustable sway bar links. Custom exhaust. Made my own splitter as well. Those were the days. Funny enough, TRD sold full header for that car. But no other aftermarket stuff was available. Had to get custom offset 17x9.5 rear wheels cause no one made anything bigger than 16x8s for it.

Now you can buy all that crap anywhere.

I see no problem with it.
Grassroots Motorsports FTW.

Don't need a $500 intake system to have it function well guys.
Zip ties FTW also. Who cares when you're drifting anyway.
