Recieved my Mountune inlet manifold from a close friend for super cheap. Installed it today with Mark(MM). Install went well until we started to button everything down. Went to tighten the plastic fitting on the end and i had a quarter of an inch left... then SNAP!:mad::facepalm:

First thing, who the hell makes a quailty manifold and cheaps out on a ****ty plastic fitting. The Elevate unit comes a brass piece which is 100% better then plastic. Mark and I rigged up something that fit, does the job and is alot beefier lol.

Heres the snapped piece and the brass fitting Mark and I rigged up. Anyone have this issue before? And, George... send brass fittings!! lol

funny thing about this .. that plastic POS didnt break on me while installing .. it broke on me coming home from a 75 mile drive and out of no where the car couldnt hold an idle .. started to bog .. i was FURIOUS ... but it was a quick and simple fix. mountune really need to fixe that little POS plastic peice. other wise, i love this intake manifold.
