Product: J's Racing Tsuchinoko intake System
Engine: d16y7/y8 mini mi
other modification: spoon N1, d16y8 tranny

J's Racing is one of the most famous auto part brand (so call the JDM baller brand) out there in Japan. Their intake system is well known due to the design (so call the whale penis, lol).

Pro:
- I recently got one of those intake onto my engine and I notice a HUGE different compared to the stock intake air box from a stock d16y8. the throttle response is SO MUCH BETTER and the lower end torque is way better compared to stock. I can feel there's improvment from start to redline (7200 rpm). Low rpm pick up is better as well and i can even accelrate in 4th gear at 2500 rpm (well, not saying i can't before but there's a noticeable difference).

- I can hear the crossover when it hit vtec

- freaking loud (well this could also be a con)

- baller factor, the whole intake is made out of CF and there's a huge J's Racing sticker on it, lol

Con:
- the cost (retail for 350 CAD or more)

- not going to fit every engine (it's not going to fit onto a d16y7 engine and maybe the d15b, not sure about the b18c1, but fit all other B series engine and d16y8/d16z6)

- freaking loud

- ment for engine w/ vtec


Pic will come soon when the weather gets better and after i wash my engine bay.
here's a pic of the intake from AJ-Racing website

Why did you decide to go with the j's intake as opposed to the password power chamber? The design is the same the quality is top notch and its almost half the price.

I know the price is a big difference but I'd want to pay more b/c it's J's Racing. LOL yes I pay more for the same design of product if they're a JDM brand, just my personal thing i guess, lol

I assume that the passwordjdm one is equal or very close to the J's Racing intake.

both seem like overkill for an intake. but i guess if you like carbon fiber. and i would not say no if someone wanted to give me one.

I guess the JDM bling factor does play a big part in purchase choice, but I've seen both in person and IMO the password intake is constructed a lot better. I noticed on the J's intake the seams were visible and kind of ruff and the inside looked unfinished. With the PW intake the seams were hardly visible and the inside was really well finished. I dunno I guess it’s all a matter of preference when all is said and done eh? :TU:

Or you could really do it cheap with the same dimension but no carbon... ie--> http://www.procarparts.com/store-detail.asp?sku=HD92CV-12630AIX they have a couple different styles, and even a rediculously bright red one. I personally say Password just cuz ive delt with the company a few times and they are awesome dudes!

Nice write up bud...

When I had mine on my b7/z6 mini me I dyno'd it. Had a regular ebay short ram for comparison.

Milled head slightly but no other mods.

Made 2.3 whp @ ~4300 rpms
Made 1.6 wtq @ ~2800 rpms

I got my Password JDM brand new for 80 bucks from a local guy lol.

Great power for the price I paid for mine.
