alright, i was gonna bring up the whole HKS thing
i mean, HKS is a great company, but the K&N blocks out heat, and AEM is a great company too right? and they're all short...although idk if the heat sheild will help much, which do you think its the best and why?
(what is the difference between the two HKS intakes? it doesn't really explain..at all)
HKS:
RallySportDirect.com - HKS Evolution 8/9 Super Mega Flow Reloaded Intake
HKS:
RallySportDirect.com - HKS Evolution VIII Racing Suction Kit
K&N:
RallySportDirect.com - K&N Evolution VIII Typhoon Short Ram Air Intake
AEM:
AEM Induction Systems 22-435P - AEM Induction Short Ram Air Kits - Overview - SummitRacing.com

Not sure i dont own either but a easily tunable and great intake is the ETS setup. And i think its cheaper too.

Is this a bling factor type question? Id say if you just want something that functions better, buy a K&N air fliter, OR get the HKS Mega Flow Reloaded (flows pretty well). The ETS setup already has the K&N, and on top of that im pretty sure that its gains arent that much more than the stock intake pipe. But if you want something that looks good every time you pop the hood, go with the HKS kit or the AEM.

ohhh, so the ETS set up has a K&N intake? that's tippin the scales, haha (i couldn't actually look at the info on the complete intercooler kit for the evo 8, it wouldn't work on my computer)

...so it seems that ETS is the best bang for your buck? what about just a single air intake, not an intercooler kit, which one is the best performing? the HKS? it seems like it..
(looks do not matter AT ALL to me)

first of all i'd like to say this website just gave me a prius advertisement....who in their right mind wants to advertise PRIUS's here!?!?!?! lol

but yeah, that sounds like it'd be a good choice
but everything HKS sells is pretty expensive compared to most other companies, so are their products worth it?

I just typed in the link myself and it comes up with ETS's website. Check your spelling or google it. The intercooler piping is th diameter your talking about and yes 2.5" is standard usually they have the option to go big but you must have a magnus manifold and or want the short route piping. As for IC size I would go for the 3.5"

ETS Mitsubishi Evolution 8 & 9 Intercooler Kit EVO89IK

i'm just copying it from the bar, this link took me to the actual page...that's odd

..but alright, you are reffering to the intercooler core thickness that you would choose 3.5" correct?...so basically:

Intercooler Core Thickness: 3.5"
UICP Routing: Magnus Tntake Manifold (mini battery)
Piping Size: 3"

what does mini battery mean?
and i was thinking an HKS BOV, good reliable company right? or is there one on that list that is a better deal?

oh and for the choice of Intercooler Style, there are two choices for the evo 8, what's the difference?

Mini battery route means you need a mini battery to fit the piping, if you just want to run the stock sized battery then go with the stock route and 2.5" pipe. Right now unless you have some godawful oversized turbo on there i dont see a reason for a 3" IC pipe. I cannot and will not reccomend the HKS for anything running a MAFS or a evo period that isnt build to run hard all the time. the HKS BOV only opens at full boost never lower meaning alot of flutter and/or compressor surge. Go with a stock evo 9 BOV, or a synaptic BOV. The difference in the IC is for the OEM bumpers either a evo 8 or evo 9 or if you have the cusco front power brace, most ICs wont fit with it so they have to make it little different to fit. i say go with a 3.5" IC. Hope this helps.

tial and blitz will be almost like the hks on the evo. greddy is alright. 1G DSM BOV you will be better off with a evo 9 BOV. Turboxs is just junk. Just google synaptic BOV. one of the bes on the market.

I prefer the exedy. Exedy makes a lot of the OEM clutches and awesome aftermarket ones, I have the single stage exedy in my evo and in my old eclipse turbo i used to have a act 2300lb clutch. I like the exedy better easier engagement but i would go with twin if you have the money. This will be my clutch for my new setup.
