These intakes will be hitting the market as soon as possible.. Just a little more time and testing to ensure we produce maximum gains. It will be available in cathedral and square port. The price point is going to be between 6xx-7xx range....

look forward to this product dropping sometime in july/august !

Hope you guys are ready to make some BTR jam

If you need to send a cathedral one out for beta testing, I would be willing to turn up boost for reliability sake.....

I'm sure BTR has a few high hp cars in their arsenal to use as test beds.

...but if they want someone with a blower, who is a supermod on this site, and has a facebook group dedicated to FI LS motors to try out the intake, I can hook them up with that person.

Why does it always have to be about high hp or blower cars?

sure they should test it to. But the vast majority is cars in the 400-500whp range.

Because that's the type of clientele that this type of intake is designed for. Much like heads that flow 400cfm wouldn't be marketed to people who are still running a stock camshaft and are using 87 octane gas.

I don't think that's it. Not with it designed to fit under a f car cowl. I could see a good cam only car-h/c car benefiting from a intake like this. It should carry rpm better than the current offerings. Solid higher rpm intake offerings are what's really holding back alot of these cars from goin over 500whp.

For purposes of this thread...it is in the forced induction section. And who has as low as 500hp these days ?

There are many intakes that will let users make good power.....whether or not those users choose to use enough rpm's to see that power is another matter.

As much as I like the design of a dual plenum, I just cant see this intake performing miracles in a n/a application compared to what is already out there.
