Talking Warranty's Up, Time for an Intake! Suggestion?

Well, I'm 1000 miles past my warranty, and It's time for MORE POWER. I like the Ralli Spec intake unit alot but I have a 99rs and I'm trying to figure out If I need a SAFC along with the Intake to prevent the car from leaning out. PLEASE HELP!

Note: I realize that the JC Sports intake unit is a good alternative but I've heard a zillion horror stories about the company

Does changing the intake to anything like a Ganzflow style affect the warranty? I thought it did not.
This is my intake, should I change it back everytime I go get the car serviced to avoid problems???

I would recomend the Rallispec. It is very sturdy, great quality, works well, and top craftsmanship.

Any ?'s e-mail me.

First things first. Install an a/f guage and drive around with that for a while.

Install an intake, take your pick they all have pros and cons. Stay away from those that require oiling, MY99 MAFs are notoriously sensitive to oil and vibration..

Watch the a/f guage at part-throttle all the way through the rev curve. Then watch the a/f guage at full-throttle all the way through the rev curve. You will notice that the car only runs lean at 5500 rpm only at WOT.

Your options at that point:
Install an SAFC.
Install a FPR.
Install a WBUGP.

SAFC=Super Air Flow Converter
FPR=Fuel Pressure Riser
WBUGP=Wooden Block Under Gas Pedal

---

Just for the record. I'm now 11 months 18,000 miles on the RalliSpec intake with no MAF faiure.

Eric you may want to oil that breather filter. The crank case breaths both out AND in on a continuous basis.

Just had to reply, I installed a JCSports intake on my wife's 97 Legacy GT. We got the intake 6 days after it was ordered, except the support bracket, which after 2 calls we recieved. Didn't seem to loose much low end (low end's crappy on this car anyway) The first thing we noticed is when it hit's 4,000 on the tach it just plain takes off! (it's an automatic) even with beating the car it got 1-2 more MPG, plus my wife loves the sound! good luck!

I love my rallispec intake, on my 99, the AFC isn't totally necessary but I would recommend it!

As I asked earlier, does the intake affect the warranty. I searched everywhere for warranty & intake info but found nothing.

Thanks,
Stefan

It CAN affect the warranty. It all depends. What went wrong, how much of a bastard your dealer is, etc. But, my dealer happens to sell intakes in the parts department, so...

A intake should not under any normal circumstance void your warrenty. Few exceptions... you know if a piece of your intake broke off and shot into the enigne or something really strange like that. But just the presence of one of the car may make some dealers behave like bastards, but otherwise thats about it.

I don't think it will affect the warranty on your car, because you are not changing any engine internal components. I had an Acura 1.6EL before, I had an ARC air intake/chamber installed. I blew my stock header at about 18 month, the dealer was going to replaced it, but I had an aftermarket one installed instead. Then 2 months later, I blew the engine head (cam bearing die, then the cam shaft went off-center, which leads to broken valves and damaged piston head), the dealer replaced it with a new engine. They dealer says they'll cover everything as long as I don't touch the engine internals.

Thanks everyone! Keep the responses coming!
My dealer has been awesome, so I dont forsee any conflicts with them. However an issue was brought to my attention that If you auto-X (which I intend to do) an Intake will bump you out of class (G-stock or STS). So at this point I'm thinking of just the K&N and taking out the fender plastic

Taking out the fender plastic will bump you out of GS as well.
Frankly the RS isnt real competitive in GS. you'll have more fun and be able to do more in STS/STR

Bhone78 - he has a 99 and Cobbs intake doesn;t work with a 99. We have our own issues to contend with the 99 RS.
