So I ordered mine this morning, been waiting for this! I ordered mine with the plexiglass top, red filter and BPV not capped. Based off their dyno numbers I'm pretty happy with the results (12 hp & 14 lb ft)

This is a high quality piece and being new here and what I've learned from the past is this, buy quality made products and you'll have no regrets or go chasing the next latest and greatest.

So just curious as to who's in on this, pre-order saves you some $$$$as well:)

Are these gains on a stock tune? Also how much is it?
I'm not sure about the gains, they showed a dyno graph on the page for it. The price on the pre-order is $437 if you spec it out like I did. Looking forward to getting an email notification for when it ships out!

Wonder if this intake is still compatible with the Sxth FMIC... They’re pretty specific in the description only being compatible with the SRI.

It looks like you're paying for the box and snorkle, 4 feet of silicone hose shouldn't cost more than $50.

Don't forget about the air filter too...the thing is this, THEY did the R&D and THEY make sure its right before it goes out the door, so THEY reap the benefits, business is business and I have no problem paying for a quality piece;) I understand that when you have a niche' type vehicle parts are going to cost more money, why not support a small company that supports us, isn't this the way its supposed to work? If no one made perf parts for the car you'd hear people say "why doesn't someone step up and make parts for OUR cars", now is the time to step up to the plate!


I know I'm new here and not trying to single you out inparticular, just sayin'.

Mark's (SXTH owner) reply to a similar comment in my facebook group:


I like how people say we are greedy when we are only 3.5 employees and I underpay myself PLUS I also underpay my two awesome employees who could go get another job within weeks and make 20% higher salary anywhere down the street. Retail prices are based on COGS, overhead/expenses, and any profit we can spare.

Any other car and something with much detail can go for a lot higher. It's expensive to make, I have to pay someone to assemble it, pack it, write installation instructions and sit here to answer your questions

Well, I'm not on FB and have never spoken to Mark but have gotten emails from them, it was about this intake and I felt right away that I had made the right call here as I wanna do this once and that's it, same for the exhaust system. Speaking of that, the system's I've looked at (SXTH, JUN B.L and Torcon) are somewhat pretty close in price as I'm probably going to be adding a muffler to mine unless I can hear and hopefully drive in an ES with a stock exhaust and muffler delete and go from there.


The advantage of buying from a smaller company is quality control and customer service, so we'll see how the intake goes as its my first experience with SXTH as well as my first mod for my car;)

No worries, I have their sway bar (and the useless locks they never delivered a promised fix for), shifter cable bushings, breather delete, and weighted shift knob. I supported a local muffler shop for my muffler delete. I went with shark racing's intake because it can use the factory air box but I currently have it hooked up to Torque's pod filter adapter.

I'm obviously new here so can you elaborate on the rear sway bar, its something I've done to several of my cars.

It was determined that they were unnecessary. I autocross my car and have never seen the bar slide more than a couple mm.

The new intake looks good.

The only downside is that it's like $1500 for the intake and FMIC. But on the upside I don't see any potential problems with either lasting 100k miles, something I can't say for most of the cheaper homemade setups.

They sold locks for their sway bar that didn't fit. They promised a fix so I didn't return mine. They never delivered a fix. My sway bar hasn't moved so it's moot but I felt like a sucker for paying twentysomething bucks for bits of aluminum too small to use as paperweights.

Have you tried, say, messaging them and asking for a return/refund?

So I received an email from SXTH today because I asked about a rough idea as to when the intake ships out, we live in an apartment right now and I wanna keep an extra eye out for the delivery. I was told about 2-3 weeks, looking forward to getting this for my car:cool:

***UPDATE***

My SXTH CPLT, along with the IC resonator delete pipe, shipped out on Monday, its going to be delivered here TOMORROW! My mechanic is on vacation till Friday and its supposed to be in the low to mid 90's and storms starting tomorrow, so I'm going to have to wait but I've waited this long, what's a couple more days. I'd like to thank Tanner for staying in contact with me during the entire process, even though I'm "that guy" who isn't on FaceSpace, he answered emails when he had the time I never felt uncomfortable during the entire process.

I feel these mods, combined with my recent JUN BL axle-back, are going to wake this car up a bit, maybe not like a LAP3 but enough to keep me happy for quite some time I'm sure!

Keep in mind with the stock tune the car will only gain between 10-15whp before the power limiters kick in on the stock ECU. So it's something but you may not feel much.
