GSM Intake Issue, please help ASAP!

Am I missing something? I am trying to install the black housing, but only see one long bolt, without a nut for the back. How do you install the bolt through the big rubber grommet in the center of the housing? I do have the small bolt in, but have no idea how to add the second bolt?


Thanks,
Michael

Re: GSM Intake Issue, please help ASAP!

So it sounds like they STILL have not fixed the problem! (see: READ HERE)

I ended up using all of my own hardware. I used a large nut, bolt and washer through the bottom rubber grommet. I used a nut and bolt through the single hole on the back of the airbox, and then I used a wingnut and bolt to attach the tube arm mount to the hole in airbox. I was assured that fixed their hardware issue. Doesn't sound like it. Too too too bad. I feel for you man.

Yes, that is what happened to me. Thanks for the info!

I ended up using my own stuff, but I am missing 3 of those black plastic snaps which hold the top plate down, along with nuts for the bolts. I am also missing the weather shield.

GSM, please send me the missing parts ASAP as the top cover looks like crap without the black plastic snaps. I also need the weather shield.

Re: GSM Intake Issue, please help ASAP!

I had all the snaps, but no nuts at all. Also came with 3 heat shields, but no rain shield. The rain shield finally got here. I had the whole thing apart yesterday (swapping in the silver tube to replace the chrome one they originally sent me) but decided to not put the rain shield on quite yet. I will say, after driving with this intake on for a month, the filter was still very clean. There were a few bugs on it, but that's about it.

Good luck. I'm really sorry to hear that you had problems. I was told that the hardware and fitting issues, and lousy instruction sheets had been fixed.

Thanks again ge2!

You would think for the $300 price tag you would not have these kind of issues...

Agreed. I did email GSM about this thread, so hopefully Scott or Ryan will be along shortly to address the issues.

Ryan, I shot you an email last night and waited about an hour before posting a thread. I had my intake off so I needed answers quick.

I will send you another email with missing parts and my address info.

Well "Web" your problem is solved. Drive 2 days non-stop from Savannah to LA & have them install it.
