If you buy our intake, you deal directly with one of 4 staff. If you don't like it, we offer a full refund on the purchase price of the intake. We are offering message board participants $10.00 off when they buy directly (non-ebay), and 10% off both the bypass valve and the K&N upgrades. Killer Junior got 8.5HP and 10 ft/lbs of TRQ with no other mods on a 2.5L motor. A 2.8 or 3.0L would most likely get more.

gruppe m --- dont waste your money



I am SOOOOO glad i went with the Gruppe M


My car sounds like a freakin beast
It may be the best, but the same argument could be said against the Gruppe M; it's too damn expensive. In my opinion, spending all that money on an intake is a waste... But it's all in what you want I guess...

i ordered the benfer intake. the money is not an issue, but i know a bargain when i see one. i wanted the gruppe m, but couldn't justify the extra $400 for 2 or 3 more hp. so i figured, BFP intake and RE pulleys. now that's more hp than the gruppe m still for less money :D

Good point :) How much are the pulleys and hp gain?

I posed this question to Mr. Benfer but I suppose anyone can answer it now that I didn't receive a response.

When you need to service the air filter on Dinan's CAI or BenFer's do you need to take apart your front bumper every time?

Presumably you need to pull the intake out, which involves removing the headlight (per Steve Benfer). So, no. I was rather concerned that that might be necessary as well, but was assured otherwise.
