I knew that you would. :D Well, I'm not selling them, but I am providing the links to a page where you can buy the adapter and filter used in the kit. Mainly cause I don't like people getting taken for $150 for soemthing you can get for $70. Anyway, here is the link:

(you'll want the 4.5" inlet filter and Mitsubishi adapter)

Surely that wasn't directed toward me now was it?

Nope. Just I know I had to pay ~$150 for my Stillen (which is the same as the FIPK) and now wish I had seen this page earlier.

I've got one of the K&N FIPK's here and I must admit I don't see a 131.00 worth. Hell I don't even see my costs worth. Which honestly isn't much less than that.

FIPK is with the stainless steel pipe? If so, can you just buy the pip w/out the filter and crap? (I just bought a cone filter, don't need the whole thing)

Whoo HOO. I was just getting ready to order a "knockoff"... remember the one for $79 on eBay? Well heck for $79 (shipped) I can get a real K&N filter with the adaptor.

I hear you have to sort of anchor it to the car or it flops around a lot but a couple 25 cent brackets should do the trick!

THANKS FOR THE LINK!!

By the way look at their page, they have decent deals on exhausts and I saw some Magnecores for reasonable cost too!

what exactly do I need?

This is going to sound so stupid:confused:, but what exactly do I need to have the whole FIPK setup from stock?? Don't you need a pipe? Thanks.

sorry guys:rolleyes: ,
Jim

Even Better Homemade Intake for $80-90

IF you want an even Better intake for about $80.

Buy the 4 1/2" intake adapter from ProCarparts.com $20
(The picture shows a 4 1/2" dia adapter but you might want to clarify) You will also need 4 mounting bolts. A little tip they are the exact same size as the bolts that hold down the spark plug cover plate. I stole these bolts to mount mine then bought new stainless bolts for the cover plate.

Then go to Autophysics and buy the biggest air filter that will fit. A powerstack 7" (or maybe even 8") filter ($51-$54) If this does not come with a hose clamp you will need a 5-6" diameter hose clamp, try to get a stainless one.

http://www.autophysics.com/

My car has 4 1/4" diameter x 6" Aerospeed air intake you can see that there is room to grow. I will probably upgrade to the Autophysics 8" filter this summer. I measured and a 7" long cone filter will fit very well and a 8" filter will fit tightly (it will come close to hitting the hard lines.)

I have pictures of the 6" long filter on my webpage in the polishing section

www.procarparts.com has that adaptor for 20$. Is htere a place to get the oval filter from K&N? That one looks like the straight cone.

The oval is the filter for the Filtercharger. You can get that at most of the shops online. It's a larger filter (width wise) but it's easier to make a cold air intake from the round adapter (if you plan on doing something like that). The round adapter also give you a lot more filter choices. I guess it's all personal preference. Thanks for the link. :D
