So when i first purchased my car the next day its had a perrin turbo inlet hose short ram intake and adjustable recirc valve..... a few months later i was drag racing down a local road at like 3am launched at the light wound out first slammed into secound and
then there was no secound gone....... i went no where.... no where fast because it had all other gears but secound so i did the first to 3rd shift for a few days.... brought it to a 5 star subaru dealer... beacuse its still covered 60k warranty they told me they couldnt fix it because of the "AFTER MARKET ACCESSORIES" BS so i pulled it down fit that crap my self bought new sincronizer and a new gear set parts were expensive but
i did the labor my self no big deal..... now its about 1 year later i have a drive line vibration under acceleration and my shifter is loose wobbles back and forth....
i dropped the drain plug and a huge piece of metal came out i think its part of the
fork assembley..... soooooo
since i canttake off my perrin inlet hose without taking off the the intake manifold and
like 6 hours of work for half an intake i decided to hide it......
i bought an SPT short ram and hooked it up... dont worry
TEMPORARLY... and plan on bringing it to a diffrent dealer maybe theyll thinks its all
SPT and warranty some shit.... oh and tooke the Perrin recirc off too.....
Bascilly what im tryin to get to i got the Spt INTAKE ...TELL ME how the damn intake
tube its a cast steel.... its like 2 pounds.... what crap is that !Cry! its going to absorb
sooo much heat.... its crap i cant wait to get rid of it... and it sounds liek crap
its honda statuss... dont buy one
You're going to have that type of thing with pretty much any short ram. There isn't going to be any "great" short ram. You're much better off with a cold air style set up, granted that you have a tune for it. I wouldn't do it with a stock car.
You could always wrap it to keep temps down, but that really doesn't make it lok all that pretty.
When I need it, I'm going with the Buschur cai.
I dont know if you are aware about a dealership not being able to deny warranty just because you have on aftermarket equipment. My local dealership tried to turn me away but there is a law "the magnuson moss warranty act" that states a dealership must prove and have hard evidence that your aftermarket parts actually are the reason for the cars damage. In you case your 2nd gear going out had nothing to do with the mods you have. Look this law up there is a lot of cases of subaru dealerships that deny warranty for having aftermarket parts. If they try to say fine well you abused the car have them prove it if they cant they have to honor the warranty.
