If your not planning on putting a system in your car go with the ultimate. If you are running a system go with the 3". That's what I'm gonna do. A system would drain too much juice from the small battery that comes with the ultimate.

intake..

The intakes are top notch..i talked to justin and he is fabbing me up on as we speak....The battery is plenty for the car....The stereo will cause some issues....And dont move the battery to rear of car...You will put weight where you dont need it and you have to run longer battery cables,which in turn will keep battery amperage down and ad extra weight and running extra cable under this, over this, through this, is a pain also.....Just get the intake that goes around stock battery.....

Here's my initial review after the install of the JMB UPP and 3" short ram/cold air intake. I would recommend Justin's merchandise to ANYONE. Combined with great customer service, his product is phenomenal. The most fun buying experience I've had in nearly 7 years of buying parts. Here's the review:

It's been several months since I originally received my Cold Side UPP and 3" CAI/SRI, but this is the first time I've really been able to not only post about my great experience with JMB, but actually post some pics and be able to confidently answer some questions if need be about the product and/or install.

The fit and finish of JMB's product is 100% quality. Everything from the smooth bends to the great powdercoat job was far above and beyond what I imagined I might receive. I'd have to say that I'm more confident and much happier with his product than I've been with any name brand product that I've received in the past.

I only had a single hang-up. The holes on the Greddy flange were too far apart, and I had to shave out my Greddy BOV hole (on one side only) to be able to stretch far enough to be able to thread the screw that holds the BOV onto the cold side pipe itself. This was a VERY minor detail, and a number of things could have caused this... but since it didn't take but 2 minutes to correct, I didn't consider it to be a huge hang-up at all.

The Block Off Plate was the same beautiful Mirror Black as the intake and UPP, and it went on as smoothly as I had predicted. Every bit of the package that I received was of a high quality.

The intake (in both the short ram and also cold air configuration) fit perfectly. Everything was included in the order that was needed to do the install. The variety of choices of possible powdercoat colors for the pipes to the multiple colors of couplers that JMB has to offer makes this a timely process if you have a hard time choosing. :jester: It's by far one of the funnest experiences ordering a car related product. JMB made me feel like I was part of the creation of the product because of his ability to create such a wide range of product when it comes to color and sizes (dealing with sizes, whichever size cold air or short ram you want 2.5" 3" CAI/SR... even a setup where you replace your stock battery with a smaller one and create an EXTREMELY clean engine bay).

I feel bad for some who don't know about JMB as of yet. lol I'm hoping more and more people are able to grab a hold of this great product from a great seller. What other company can you call on their cell phones to have the person who created the product answer your questions (I know everyone could name a few... lol, but you get the point).

My hat goes off to Justin and his business. You've got my support anytime.

And here's the Cold Side UPP (PERFECT fit):





Here's a pic of Justin's UPP with Greddy Flange. This gives you a great view of just how amazing of a fit you get (not to mention GREAT clearance on the Master Cylinder directly behind it).



I originally installed the Short Ram setup, but had recently gone to the CAI configuration due to the fact that I thought it looked much cleaner in the bay without the filter sitting right there. :rofl: The short ram setup was LOUD when I still had the factory surge valve, but putting on the extension quieted things down a bit. I'd had previous experience with CAI's and was worried about how low it would be in the fender, but let me tell you this, Justin took his time when creating this. It's set perfectly in the fender, not too far down, and not too high. On my Nissan, and also VW, they were so low that it could have easily inhaled water only inches deep (I was lowered in both vehicles though, but still the filters were LOW). I wouldn't worry about either the short ram or cold air setup with JMB's equipment. P.S. I didn't realize how much of a MONSTER this intake is (size wise) until I compared it with pics of others with 2.5" intakes. Makes an impressive look under the hood. :thumbsup:







That's it! Please visit http://www.jmbperformance.com for some great information on the product reviewed above.

Maybe for drag racing you want it in the front but I am trying to make my weight distribution 50/50. Have you ever loaded this car up with weight in the trunk, I mean like over 200 pounds. It handles amazingly better.
