Is it just me or does the price of this intake look ridiculous? Couple of elbows with some k&n filters for $650+?! Sign me up for **** that ****! No offense to Bellacorse (love their speedy shipping), they didn't make that price up.

real simple setup, but a bit audacious?

I'd agree, really over priced... you could recreate that with $50 of parts + the filters.

Egads, Batman! I wouldn't put that on a Bonnie if they were giving 'em away.

The horsepower gain must be outstanding.

You'd think for that price the new jets or a re-map would be included...
