With the wiring harness unplugged and the fuel rails disconnected, it was a relatively straightforward job to remove the remainder of the bolts and lift off the stock plastic lower intake. That's right-we said plastic. This intake is a great torque producer, but its construction has proven a liability on nitrous and big-boost applications. Heck, it's even failed in stock cars. That shouldn't be a problem for the robust Reichard piece.
