Brady wouldn't you say a custom dyno tune will make more hp than shark? So why spend 350 bucks for no reason when I'm doing research on custom tuners?

Plus shark has no resale value so if I'm planning on custom it's just a fat waste of money IMHO

I find myself correcting your mis-information once again: the K&N kit has a heat shield isolating it from the engine bay and won't heat soak any more than any other intake.

Sorry to dirty up your thread aggie, it really was just a joke, but then he has to go post some nonsense again.
Trust me a lot of heat is surrounding it . I would say my Dinan long tube pulls in a lot more air that's a lot colder

Yes, custom would be better. But you said a Shark wasn't any better than what you had.

By all means, go custom! Can't wait to see.

Hmmm...4 cylinder?? Boost is obvious, My guess is a Lancer Evo VIII MR.

EDIT: Damn, Tx beat me to it.

VIII. Not an MR, though.

Really excited about it. Hoping to be able to drive it to C&C on 12/1. Just depends on how quickly I'm able to get it back in fighting shape. I'll let you know.

Alas, a sunroof. And a screwy sunroof at that.

No RS for me I need all the "luxuries" an EVO can offer.

Not going to liter op's thread arguing with ethugs like you. No one holds my hand. You just care to much about insignificant things in life

On another note if I could find a shark I would test it out but from what I've heard it's not optimum for my mods and there's ponies left on the table

Damn my guess was wrx or evo and I went with wrx :p
Being a German who loves German cars, they don't hold the mystique or my passion like a BMW or Porsche does, but they are damn respectable machines and dollar for dollar, the best performance options out there.

A 911 was the first car I fell in love with. I'll own one some day, it's just not practical for trying to put 2 kids in the back. Plus they're too pricey for me right now. I hope to find a 996 C4S some day.

I hear ya, not in my budget or lifestyle any time soon, but some day.

A 996 C4S is quite the machine. I love the thrill of two wheel drive and track my cars pretty heavily. So for me, it'd be more like a 996 C2.

Honestly, as I'm sure you know. You can build an Evo to be ridiculously fast for unbelievably affordable prices.
