    Dude, I'd ditch that intake tubing and get the zzp tubing.. I had it on my 98 and the loop you're making looks like crap. I had that as well..

    Also I don't know why everyone that does the loop uses that 90 bend? That's the first thing I ditched.





    I think it will perform better, it can look cleaner, and its just a better solution..

    This is what it looked like when I got it.



    My loop constantly rubbed my fans and leaked like crazy.. I just don't see it as a really good solution.

    I will do it my way. I prefer to set it up my way. Yours looks more restrictive as it looks to be narrowing the intake. and if it hits your fans you have an issue. The fans are blocked by guards to avoid contact.

    Plus its cleaner, Looks better. If it leaked you had issues. This thing is tight and had no leakage.

    do not pust that stuff looks like crap, because in reality YOUR setup is disgusting looking and not clean. your narrowing the air.

    ZZP Tubing is the same thing as the spectre. No difference. Dont like it? go away.
