    Thank you! I will be ordering very soon. What length of alum tubing is needed? I assume you will take pics when it's done?

    Thank you kindly.

    I wonder if a ported TB would help our cars breathe a little better? Saw this ad on craigslist. $75 to port, 2 day turn-around.

    The intake tube I got here.

    So all total out the door and shipped I spent 75 bucks per "homemade version" of the Stealth V intake.
    It might not seem like it would make a difference, but it does.

    Get headers, ported TB, and a high flow air filter (like an LPE CAI), for best results.

    My wife said she didn't like the color of my stealth grey V when we looked at it online, but when I brought it home she said she liked it much better in person.

    I didn't like your wife at the beginning of your post, but now after reading the rest of it, I like her much better.
