Thanks for inquiring about the stage one intakes guys. Brian from BT is correct, the stage one was wildly popular and sold a lot more than we could have anticipated, we are very humbled by all the support you guys are giving us and I assure you we are working diligently to fill more orders at this time. That being said, it will likely be another week until we get our silicone and next batch of panel filters in...Thank you all for your continued patience :)
Understood. So more tubes should be shipped out next week?

Received and install PRL stage 1 intake. After driving for a couple days I can Honestly say I can’t feel the extra few ponies, but what I did notice is slightly quicker spool, the bypass release is a lot louder. I don’t know how people can say it’s not noticeable or sounds the same, but my wife noticed and I didn’t even tell her I installed it. I also noticed there is a small, but noticeable high pitched whistling sound as the car is accelerating. I love it, best deal as I was in need of a new air filter anyways and Honda was talking about $169 to install one ‍♂
This is just temporary as I’m hoping to get either HKS or Eventuri in the future. Stay tuned for future mods. Hopefully 2019 I’ll be installing USR DP, swift springs, rear camber arms

We installed our prototype Stage 1 intake earlier today to test fitment before gather data. Though everything went together smoothly we are going to be making one final revision for optimal fitment on the production piece. Dyno results and data coming soon! :thumbsup:

The Stage 1 system will be utilizing the stock MAF housing. We have some big plans coming up for our CAI system that we think will be a game changer! ;)

Here is a sneak peek of our cold air intake system. We have been working diligently the past several months improving upon the stock intake system to bring you guys a true cold air design with OE fuel trims in mind.

Keep in mind this is our first design and is subject to change as we move forward.

PRL , I would always make an intake with a second scoop as the Evenuri one to make a difference with the most intakes on the market.....

were you trying to say that the ARMA intake you got isn't that great?

It almost seems like you're saying their (PRL) hose fitment was great, but the PRL intake they made wasn't...lol...because that ARMA intake isn't PRL...it's just an oem version of CF...kind of a confusing post?

Yes the fitment on the ARMA was a pita, I tried my best not to scratch it up but managed to get a few small scuffs on it.

We designed this intake following suit with the rest of our product line offering an upgraded intake with the largest possible intake box without requiring any modification, cutting, or trimming. The universal billet MAF housing is available for both the "street" and "race" versions (The billet housing will be the same regardless of the version). We have provisions within our airbox to accommodate a secondary air source in the future.

Currently we do not have pricing determined on this, but will be priced very competitively, we are still sourcing materials and will have a more finalized pricing closer to when pre-orders begin. If everything goes smoothly without much revision we expect these to be on pre-order by late spring 2019.

How is the induction noise on this stage 2? Stage 1 was very subtle, definitely better than stock. But I want something more pronounced.
