: GSM Intake problem?

I am getting water and dirt and other crap on the filter since it is exposed through the grill. Does anyone else have this problem? Thinking about going back to the stock setup. When I open up the hood, there is always extra dirt and stuff on the filter and intake tube. Never had that problem with the stock setup.

thoughts?

Call GSM..... it was supposed to be included with every intake kit. They'll ship it to you. I live in Seattle, and I've never used mine. I spray the filter off with a compreoor and brush every few weeks though.

Ok, thanks. Will do. What does it look like?

It's a half shell metal piece (very nicely made actually), and it attaches under the hose clamp at the top of the filter.

Just spoke to Mike at GSM and he sent me out a shield right away!

Great service.

No.... not great service. Great service would have included it when you should have gotten it to begin with. This is second chance service.

I'd wait til you receive it from GSM. They dont have the best rep around here.

They are sending it for free, but he charged me 15.00 for shipping, which is a rip, as I know 5.00 would have done fine. Once it gets here I think I am going to switch to a volant. I like the look and build of it better. Anyone want to buy my GSM intake?

yep, and he offered to give me a new filter due to the original one getting dirty without the shield. But then I realized he was going to charge me 45.00 for it. So far I am not to happy, and yet another screwup story from GSM. I should have known better then to buy from them.
