Very rare intake. I had a chance to buy one from a guy with two of them, one spare and one in his Roush. Decided to pass after he told me what a pain in the ass it is to install it or service it. Plus you need the hood that goes with it, more $$$$.

i didnt pay anything for it. i did someone a favor and they gave it to me.
yes it came with the air filter and housing but i no longer need it with my turbo.

any cowl induction hood will work with it but it would sure be nice to find a factory 1 but thats nearly impossible. i have a cowl induction hood waiting to go on but i wont need the air filter and housing since my intercooler piping will go right to the tb instead.

ive seen them sell for $800-$2000 bucks on ebay. one just sold brand new never installed and signed by Jack Roush for $1500 so it all depends who wants it and whos bidding.

What about the gaskets for that thing? Did you find a place that sells them or are you just gonna make your own?

gaskets were a pain to find but i found a guy in texas that has 5 sets and he agreed to sell me one. as soon as i get the set im going to try and find someone local to make me some copies because i know im gonna be taking it off again in the future.

im trying lol! my friend and i have a bet going on. he says that my ported cobra intake that i used to have on my car will work much better then the Roush....lol! i think hes crazy! he thinks that with the Roush intake my car is gonna fall flat on its face haha! it may add a little extra lag because of its size but fall flat on its face?? i dont think so. i hope it makes some big gains so i can rub it in his face lol!! j.k.

thanks! the only reason i didnt to silver on the lower was because my last 1 was, and i just wanted to totally switch it up. plus im doing the valve covers silver and i didnt want too much silver on the lower end. thanks for the input though:)

thanks! believe it or not it was a rattle can lol! it was done in 2 parts. base coat then topcoat. its made by duplicolor called metalcast. it flows beautifully and dries pretty much on contact, if you mist it on using thin coats. it came out perfect. by far the best rattle can job ive ever done:yes
