This intake features a smooth aluminum pipe with mandrel bends that minimize the air turbulence under acceleration. This pipe will come powder-coated a nice black finish to provide the engine with clean looks, and to have extra protection against rust and corrosion. The pipe leads to the filter which can be serviced throughout your regular maintenance routines. The filter is then encased with a pretty slick box which shields the intake from harmful engine bay temps, and from other debris that could possibly enter the engine bay. Yet, it is properly vented to get the air the intake needs. The box also has a plexiglass window to allow users to visually inspect the condition of the filter throughout time.
