Exclamation True Flow intake for sale

This is a brand new True Flow intake system I bought awhile back, but never installed on the car. I've decided to leave the car stock at least until 2010 when my warranty expires so I'm going to let it go. It fits any 2000-2004 3.2L or 2.7L boxster. I was going to put it on Ebay, but I'll let you guys have first dibs on it if anybody is interested. Very simple install and it comes with instructions. Here is the manufactures site http://www.trueflow.com/ and some pics of the system. $200 +S&H.

Installing that should NOT void your warranty.

You are probably right because this system leaves the stock intake box intact so it shouldn't void the warranty like an EVO system might for instance. However, I'm still going to leave my car stock at least until the warranty expires or longer.

Hey Bruce, I just noticed I posted this in the wrong section accidently. It might not hurt to move this over to the parts for sale forum if possible.

Installing ANY aftermarket part will NOT void your warranty. Per the Magnussen Moss act, aftermarket parts cannot void warranties, as long as said aftermarket parts are not the CAUSE of a failure.

I.e., you swap your exhaust out, and your RMS starts leaking - the exhaust can't cause that, so your warranty still covers the RMS.

Basically yeah, it replaces the stock tube that has pockets or resonators between the intake box and the throttle body plus it has the high flow filter. The idea behind it is that those baffles reduce sound and cause some turbulance so this should make the intake a bit louder and smooth out the flow into the engine. The cheapest I could find this system was around $260 so I feel this a good deal for a brand new system. Here is one of the places I found. Feel free to search for a better price.

I can't comment about hp and sound gains because I never installed the system, but porsche986spyder has this system. Maybe he can chime in with his input. Thanks!
