Methods Automotive, have fitted in my bro's RS, it rocks !

Thats what I heard of. 8bhp to 10bhp is more realistic.

@ Rgu88. he quoted it at 14k, do read the posts. I know of another company(CArbonium or so) with 19k setup.

Hmm... this might sound dumb but here goes.

The kit comprises of bent pipes, right? How does it differ from other bent pipes of the same dimensions & quality? How is such a difference in price justified?

The price is justified by the brand, the quality, the guarantee cuz they're specalists in the field!!! It is a high quality upgrage afterall!!!

One question though, can we [Sankar, me and everybody else running carb setups] have an inhouse typhoon intake kit designed to relocate a conical somewhere by the battery behind the left headlight so as to feed on cold air????
As a carb mounted 360 degree K&N will purely suck in hot air that rises from the engine towards the roof of the bay where it is located!!!

I wanted to know what would be the alternative fixture to turn the pipe into the mouth of the carb, as seen in the picture below on the fiero!!!

Ed i agree they're the specialists but what's so high tech about mandrel bend steel pipes?! Can't a local pipe specialists with the right tools (mandrel) make a pipe kit just like that of the K&N from stainless steel pipe (ST is tough to bend i hear) or from mild steel and plate or paint it. The dimensions can be taken from an original K&N though. Wouldn't that be cheaper.

It's not easy to route the pipe to the battery side, coz the dizzy would foul up. Otherwise if it's designed to clear the dizzy the pipe would too long or it'll have to come over the cyl head. The pipe being metal would absorb the heat from the head.

Another option is to go to the right side, if the windshield washer tank can be relocated to the left side (it can be done) then it's possible to make a nice intake kit ending behind the right headlight. Even if you don't relocate the tank it is still possible to get a nice one done. In my opinion to the left it'll be too long.

The fact is a long intake kit boosts the low end performance and a short one is better for the high end peformance.

A circular under hood kit imho is a waste coz as you said it'll suck in hot air (i'm currently running a setup like that but with paper filter), otherwise you'll have to cut your hood and fit a scoop. But who would want to cut the beautiful irreplaceable hood?!!
