$200 including shipping.
I got it from ISR and you should be able to order one from them.
It is very loud, but it does sound very good.

Looks like a 98 or 99(MAF). Does it lean out or hesitate above 5500rpm? I know some intakes make it do that!

Looks sweet, Good job on the install,
Just be carefull, it looks like you used the crappy brackets to mount it that came with it. They move around to much for our 98 and 99's Maf to handle...do yourself a favor and pick up some stonger brackets from sears hardware stores, its cheap and a pain in the ass to bend but much safer for the MAF.

I would re-mount that intake. Your brackets will snap if you don't have STi motor tranny mounts. The engine has too much flex under throttle. You will see some bolts that hold the brackets for the spark plug wires. That is a good place. You only need one bracket. Most people mount the intake just like you have it. Mine is not mounted at all. I let is shake and do its own thing. It's been like that for 50000 miles, and no broblems.

I have two brackets holding it right now. One is heavy steal and the other is the cheap bracket that came with the kit. It is very solid. I can barely move the intake. Isn't that what you should do with a 99, because MAF issue.

sounds like that should be enough, I used a heavy guage steel bar mounted to the MAF and secured to that bracket next to the strut area, like you did. It is very secure, and i've had no problems yet, some 20,000 plus miles. Just don't Over oil the filter and you should be fine....its still a gamble with the 99MAF some people get lucky and some people are cursed.
