the one bad thing about that intake, when you have to clean the filters.... gotta take the bumper off

Well everybody I purchased the car everything is perfect for the price only thing wrong with it the I have found is that it could use front struts but ima lower so wasn't a big deal to me an it sounds like a front right wheel bearing is going out other than that this car look like new
I don't really like how the antenna sticks out so bad looks goofy I think but the inside looks gorgeous to seats ain't scratching or ripped I think I have got a wonderful deal so far for 8 when they run no cheaper than 10k with over 100k miles around me

Congrats.

I have the Acura RDX antenna on my Z. It looks stock and is MUCH smaller.

ahhhh...you bought (and overpaid) on a salvaged car with high miles? previous/suspect engine damage? Please tell me you paid cash for this car? No banker would lend someone like you $8k for a salvaged titled vehicle, right? ... right? Someone out there has to have some sense?

if freshkick is making 300whp with bolt-ons and a tune I would think that tune is really pushing the timing and for how hard he is running his engine it's only a matter of time

OP, I took my 4" angle grinder to the top narrow section of the antenna as I agree with you that they look goofy...

and create a build page on what work you do and the gains you recognized.

$8000 for a car that was previously totaled, and has a replacement motor.

Thats a risky purchase.

You have not clearly read the thread, it was hydrolocked, never totaled at all just the motor sucked up water through the intakes

Thus making it a total loss on insurance, why it has a salvage title.

Correct, it could of been something simple that made it hydrolocked but mine was supposedly by the intakes, but you can also do it other ways like water in your gas or washing your engine an got water into the intakes etc
