Boss intake installed!

I installed my boss intake and x pipe last night,
Thing is a monster now, Can't wait to take it to the track this weekend!

I would like to thank all the users here that have posted valuable info about the intake, made install a lot easier and didn't run into many problems.

Note for anyone planning on installing the boss intake: You definitely need safety goggles when removing the fuel feed line and be extra careful when mounting the purge valve on the front of the block as to make sure it is oriented correctly to where the electrical connection will reach and the plastic is semi delicate so don't break it! Lol

I didn't really feel any noticeable torque loss. With the amount of gains u get up top whatever was lost isn't even an issue.

I did retain the stock air intake, used a bama 91 race tune(no 93 in my area), and I can barely tell that there is a loss of torque, I love how it smoothed out the power band too. And yes the high end surge of power from around 5 or 6 all the way to 7800 is awesome. Definitely makes up for the minuit amount of torque loss.

I'm not sure what they set it for if it's stock or if you don't ask, but I had to ask them specifically on the tune specifics form for 7800.

Is their #8 cylinder warranty still in effect if the rev limit is raised? I believe my tune is set at 7,500rpm from bama however im going to call them up to raise it as well.

I imagine it would be unless they said it wasn't.

You assume that AM would revoke a written warranty without any clause in said warranty stating the conditions would do so, and without any written or verbal notification that it had been voided? Exactly why would you assume that?

I would verify if they'd still cover it if you ask them to tweak the tune certain ways than they usually would*

Nice ... let me make one suggestion though. I found it a lot easier to install the fuel rails/injectors after the manifold was seated. Try it whatever way you like, but I had a really hard time trying to put the assembly in whole.

When I put the fuel rail/injector assembly back in with the manifold in place, I had to start with them almost upside down, slip it in front of the throttle body opening and just flip it down into place. Worked for me, but some people have had good luck putting it on as one piece as well.

Sweet! Where'd you get the fuel rail covers? Did you pay the ridiculous 150+ or did you find a cheap solution?

They are not plastic. They are actually solid high density foam.

The sad thing is, the one cost a third of what the other does.
