Thank you for the kind words guys

+1 to Mike and X-PH. Made ordering easy at great prices, and customer service was 11/10.

I ordered pretty much every bolt-on from them and by far was best prices available.

No problem Mike... I do want to make a public update since my last post... I think I sent you a message last minute asking if I can change my order to a red chargepipe. I didn't have much faith because it was so last minute... but not even a hour ago it showed up at my door. Thanks for giving me the fun project this weekend! Looking forward to purchasing the MST intake next!

PS: any b48 catless downpipe's coming to x-ph sometime soon?

Thanks again for everything!

The best intake is the stock intake

Spend your money somewhere else if you're looking for power. Intakes don't make power, at least not enough to justify the cost. The B48 more or less shares plumbing with the B58 which has 50% greater displacement,the intake is not an obstruction in any way.

If you're looking for induction sound then to each his own. There's no "best" when it comes to sound, just what is best for you.
