Supply versus demand my friend...supply versus demand.
Now I think of a way of doing business.....I pay 3000 to buy one, then bring it to china and have them copy it and sell for 750$ a piece.....about 10 pieces and i am starting to make money.
China solves every Expensive Labor there ever is existed.....China forever. China can even make Awesome products at Cheaper price when you give them the design......Dont believe me ? Ever wondered where does the Ipad Iphone Apples stuff Profit come from ?
I prefer to keep my parts costing less than my car LOL
This is the attitude of many on here and also why under your username it says driveway ornament.
As far as DR750's costing $3k....c'mon....more like $3600 with decent wastegates and turbos aren't any more of a piece of the puzzle than this intake, or intercoolers, or fuel system. Don't pretend that you can bolt on 750's and no other costs/mods involved and make 500+awhp. With the necessary modifications, you are still looking at $6-7k.
You can buy from China with a copied design for 1/2 the cost and hope that the materials hold together and they used spec aluminum and welded properly and have flat flanges and proper alignment. Most on here are willing to take that risk...especially if like above you only have a 3k dollar car. For those that have nice examples of 3s's, and want big numbers, you typically have to pay big dollars. Remember the old adage...cheap, fast, reliable...pick 2. Sorry, I'm off my soapbox now. We can return to talking about the intake.
