Just out of curiosity, why are you buying a new intake manifold?

just wanted a new one to make the engine bay pop alittle more... i know a stupid reason to go and buy a new one when my stock is fine and im also slowly building the engine so i figured it couldnt hurt but i was just looking at prices right now then i found it for decent price and i didnt want to pass it up

Do your homework. Research the parts you're looking at buying first, don't just throw things at your car. A new intake manifold is not very high up on the list of important parts until you start getting really serious.

Cheaping out can hurt your car. A general statement, I didn't click your link

I was also considering changing my intake manifold just for a cleaner engine bay. Then I came across this pic

I must have NOW!

You don't need one. By the time you do need one you know too much to even post.
Even with a gt35 the stock one flows enough. And that's not even a 'big ass turbo'

Buy it.

Stop looking at your engine bay and start driving.

Hate to be 'mean'.. but really, I wouldn't be taking apart all the hoses and whatnot just to put a new intake manifold on that will net you zero gains. It's fine just the way it is and is way more trouble than it's work.

... and that's if you even find one that fits your model.

Stick with stock there.
