    Angry whats the deal dude?

    today i pulled the naz intake for my eaton swap and found this:





    each pic is a different crack. im not happy at all. for 900+ dollars you would think the quality of the welds would be the last thing to worry about. this intake barely has 3k on it with no boost and it cracks like this? you have to be kidding me! could these cracks explain my a/f problems? or my surging on start up?

    ps, i know in the other thread i said the intake was sold, ive contacted the buyer and he and i are working it out.

    This is why Im pulling my intake off and replacing with the stock one before MV-7. I don't need broken welds in the middle of no mans land while driving out 700 miles.

    My resonating noise is basically the bottom pan vibrating, I'm sure that's not good for a half-assed welding job with paper thin metal.

    Most definitely. Its a huge vacuum leak and un-metered air coming into the intake.

    Agreed depending on where those cracks are located at on the intake.

    Wow...that sucks!

    I'm not sure that the welding is the problem.
    Those beads look pretty good.
    I think that the problem is the thin sheetmetal that is used.
    I'd be willing to bet that it vibrates and has a 'harmonic' with the engine rpm.
    That is causing excess metal stress and then a fatique crack(s).

    And the sheet metal might harmonics might also be the strange sound some of the members are hearing too?????

    Why we try and discuss new mods -----

    This is why this website has historically tried to logically discussed new mods to insure they are worth the money and perform as stated. But, you guys tried very hard to shut off this debate including a banned member. Perhaps we can remember what happened with this IT issue and maintain some civil discussions on any new future mods. I cautioned everyone on this mod numerous times. A few members got caught and it is now an expensive lesson.

    OK, your turn ----
