many of us went the cheap route and bought the $50 intakes from ebay...they worked great the whole time I had it....but a warning to everyone who has one or wants to get one, make sure you check it everyday, I talked to the dealership that bought my car and the other day it was really hot, and a bunch of people were test driving it, and with the heat from the engine and the heat from outside, the rubber actually melted and the intake fell onto part of the A/C and ruined the whole A/C unit. so be carefull!

are you referring to the coupler to the throttle body or the hose that is laying on tops of heads? if its the hose you speak of, they having it lay on direct heat then of course its gonna melt. other than that, those couplers are made from silicone which is good for hundreds of ambiet heat, not direct heat
