Re: Secret Weapon R Intake

Re: Secret Weapon R Intake

So far I am loving the sound at WOT. It is very silent at low rpms which is nice. I am feeling a better low end. The high end feels the same as before with my AEM CAI. Ill update the effects on my mpg.

Just ordered mine. Was it just the chrome color? Or did it come in different colors? I would love a red one.
