See you have a duralast battery. Your stock battery already go dead?
Mine did after maybe 1.5 years. Funnily, it happened right after I got a slow flat and left it in the driveway for a week. Tow truck got here and ho-ho we can't take off the parking brake and nobodys got cables, time to put er on four dollies.

Who thought an electric parking brake was a good idea again?

Haha nice

Our winter beater needed a battery so I slapped the Honda battery in that and upgraded mine to AGM and 1 size bigger.

Just an update for the community, we are currently awaiting or next batch of Titanium to keep moving forward with production on our next batch(es) of inlet pipes. Our current ETA for being able to fulfill orders is the end of April, but we will be revising our listing/community with a more accurate date and enabling sales again once we have a better idea of material arrival.

We have packaged up some more blemished units and listed at a discounted price on our site for anybody who's interested. Blemished kits contain cosmetic blemishes such as inconsistencies in tubing finish, scratches, etc, but do NOT affect function or fitment. Pictures for example are listed on our site.

We apologize for the delay, but should be back to normal production shortly!

We have had a customer confirm fitment with the Gruppe M intake system with modification of the inlet hose, but we can pretty much guarantee that this will not fit any other intake systems. Our kits have two hose options; stock air box and HVI, both of different angle and length. Unless the MAF Housing is similar diameter and location to either our HVI or the stock air box, the inlet pipe will not fit.
No HVI versions of the blems available?

Keep an eye on our clearance section on the website to see when we may have blemished items available.
I think he’s asking about the blemished inlet tube w/ the HVI tube. Which correct me if I’m wrong, is currently available on your site.

I emailed them about it a couple of days ago. It is fixed now and I've ordered a HVI blemished version.

Yup, that HVI hose needs some redesign. Perhaps I received a faulty one. Although, after sending them photos and such I was told it was “normal”. I also ran into the issue where the silicone hose included with their HVI was a bit on the short side. My mechanic and I attempted all their “tips and tricks” such as loosening and re-fitting different areas while installing to no avail. My only gripe was that upon several complaints at no point did anyone in their team volunteer to send me a replacement or directly reach out to me. I didn’t really push the issue since I was getting a new silicone hose with the TIP. Nice catch btw!
That was an actual issue on their end? I got my HVI from the first batch, and when installing it, the silicone hose just never goes on as far as I see everyone else's. I've done everything I can, and even extra muscle to help me push it onto the inlet pipe, but still nothing. Did a couple other tries since I had to remove that piping when I installed their charge pipes, and I still haven't been able to slide that silicone over as far as most peoples. Figured it must be me. Tried lubing it as well. Would be nice if I got another one for free. Maybe it'll fit better whenever I get the inlet by PRL. I have all their products but that.
