It's their own brand and not a CAI. They're getting some real bad press over at H-A.net so you may want to go to importtoys.

It's a no name intake consisting of a Polished T-6061 mandrel-formed aluminum tube with a cone filter. They have them up on their website for $99, but they have terrible customer service. If you need info, forget it. Phones are answering machines that direct you in a loop & they do not reply to emails. Not saying that the product is bad for an inexpensive generic but caution this intake says it fits all 91-95 legends, not so if you have TCS (traction control system). I know cause I bought one on impulse and it won't fit a 2gen legend with TCS. If you have a non TCS legend & are interested, make me an offer.

hey guys, yea... they are kinda "shady" with a lot of stuff. BUT i did buy my corners and intake from them. so far i got both quick and fast. only complaint is the shipping price. then again.... i am from socal and live like 40 mins from them, and their address is on the website. maybe they just don't want to mess with people who can actually get them in person. anyhow, that's my $.02

Pipe is too long if you have TCS. Open your hood and look at where the TCS ends and where your intake tube would go. Compare that to the portion before the TCS and you will see that the pipe needs to be shorter and bent in a different direction. Hope that helps.

Why are they getting bad press?

I couldn't find the thread, anyway I bought my corners and bumpers and indiglo gauges from them. It all came and the shipping was pretty fast. Guess I'm lucky.

All you need to do is take a hacksaw and lop off 2 or 3 inches of the intake to make it fit TCS equiped Legends.

regardless of whether or not it's a name brand...is it actually a good intake? does it sound good, and can you tell if there's a HP boost?
