Sorry it took so long to get this posted...Kinetix SSV intake manifoldInstallation Difficulty = easy side of mediumInstall Time = 5 hrs. (ONLY because I took my time and this was the first mod I performed on the car)Cost = $900Advantages = Increase in HP (around 16) and increase in torque (around 15-ish); looks damn cool; a good intake to have if you plan on forced induction at some pointDisadvantages = might be price prohibitive for some
Did you have your car dynoed after install or are you going by what the website said? I'm just curious because I'm thinking about buying it myself and I've read a lot of back and forth on how much hp it really adds.
I have one. It made the power band more smooth up to the red line. I'm not sure if it is faster or stronger because I never dynod it either. My car still burns rubber. 5AT. I put wider tires on too. The construction on this "newer generation SSV" is not thin aluminum but stainless steel. It looks pretty cool. However, after I install the Vortec this winter, I'm sure it will perform better than now. I should take some pics of my car and post them. My wife thinks it's ridiculous, but what does she know...
