    I'd get OEM, perrin, AVO, APS, gimmick, or samco. Anything but godspeed or ebay...at least for the turbo inlet.

    And if it's torn or leaking then you should replace it definitely.

    For the record, Gimmick Motorsports is an eBay brand; some vendors just realized how popular they were becoming, and started peddling their products. You're better off just saving your money and just buying the generic eBay part, instead.

    Perrin is a moderately-priced inlet, and doesn't require removal of the intake manifold or TGVs for installation.

    Perrin.. and you can jam it in there without removing the intake manifold, it's just a pita.

    Is no one going to address the fuel leak? There shouldn't be any breaks in the fuel under the manifold since those hard lines are one solid piece. If you have a fuel leak under your manifold I'd bet your lines are broken. If your lines aren't broken, you either have an injector leaking or your manifold > TGV gaskets are bad. Are you SURE it's fuel? If your car is leaking fuel, there is a very high possibility that it's misfiring.

    Yeah.. if it's leaking fuel on the passanger side I would suspect bad injector seals.

    Definitly fuel and there is 4 hose clamps under turbo inlet and fuel seams to be coming from there. clamps were a little loose. I also found there was a recall for these lines leaking in cold weather. As for the inlet going to buy a couple and try them out will post differences.

    Buying a few different inlets is a waste of money.

    Godspeed and gimmick are the same part exactly no difference at all and not hard at all to swap after I removed the oem inlet and installed silicone hose kit. Now it takes about 20min to swap inlet.both inlets are junk they both collapse under high boost

    Yeah, I would assume the chappy soft ones are easier to install.

    I thought the collapsing was only an issue with high boost and a stock intake...
