OK, so I am new to the DSM realm. This is the first car that I decided to "Hook up." I got the 97 Eclipse RS 3-4 months ago. The first thing I did was put 18' wheels on it. The next no-brainer upgrades would be an air intake and an exhaust. Bolt-on is the theme here. I installed my first intake tonight.... Seems like everyone has one... Installing this intake was a total pain the butt. I simple 30 min job took 3-4 hours. Getting the stock intake out was a pain. I could have fired the Mitsubishi engineer. The collar that came with the Tenzo-R intake was definately too thick (another pain). I had to do some serious cutting and trimming to get this to fit. It this normal?!?! In any case, I got it all together and it seems to work (and sound good). OK now I'm happy.
