    From my research this was the better option because Itll pull air from outside the engine compartment. Some ppl didn't like the way it sounds but I think I'll be just fine. Installing it tomorrow. Can't wait

    In theory couldn't you just put some dynamat in there and that would block the sound from getting in the cab?

    I'm not sure, the noise its not bad I just have a high whistle when I'm at a high throttle. I'm thinking it's the little bit of over cut I did or from the space in the bracket that holds the the pipe. I'll have to do some trial and error

    Curious how long you had to wait for your cowl intake, and did you order it directly from THOR??

    I ordered it direct from THOR. it came in like a week or so.

    The only thing I wasn't happy about was I thought it was going to black and green like the their web site pictures showed. Mine came chrome.

    I've been hearing some mixed reviews on ordering them... so that is why I was wondering if you had ordered it direct and how long it took to get... I'll have to look into it once I get some money coming in again... I too wish it was a black tube.. as I'm not a huge fan of shiny things like that.. Maybe I'll have to hit up my powder coating guy and see how much it'd run to get it powder coated.. along with valve cover... figure got to do a new cover gasket.. might as well pick one up from the JY and have it powder coated up..

    I've got two of them, one of them, I'm not sure if I'll go back to or not.. Had him powder coat my rock rails with a textured black, and less than two weeks after getting them back and installing them, had surface rust coming through... drives me nuts... But the other guy I used to work with in the AF, and he said I could bring him the rails, along with the bumpers I was going to have him coat... and he'll strip them all and reshoot them all for me.. Thinking about having him coat the factory rims off of my Ram, when I go to replace the tires on it.. I can't wait until I get a place of my own... and maybe then I'll look into picking up a decent size oven, and start doing powder coating myself.. but for now.. I'll continue to support local folks that do good deals..

    I feel you on that. I just want my own place so I don't have to go over to my buddy's house just to do work. Like right now I need a new power steering pump but I'd have to go there because we can't work on cars in the park lot.
