    No, i smoothed the interior ridges and on the rear of the LS6tb its reduced for an odd reason. I have a DBW tb on my vehicle so messing with the blade even a simple butterfly grind on it is more often then not found to cause idle issues. If i had a cable drive system i would of gone more port with a new blade and more mods on it. In this car it was a mild port job though but worth it.

    It will be a cold day in hell before I spend more than $100 on a piece of pipe and an air filter.

    At $307 it better come with a ******* and a reach around.

    you do not want to use that after the filter. i have one of thoes coming out in the center of the filter in this short ram. its to help get cooler air to a short ram setup.
    the plastic is very, very thin and tears very easily.

    this is the only pic but you can see the adapter plugged into the center of the filter, didnt really seem to do much though imo.
