Default BBK SSI anyone?

Has anyone used the BBK SSi intake on there car? The car I want to put it on is supercharged and somone once told me that BBK intakes leak or don't form good seals? So really has anyone ran any BBK intake on a boosted application or know somone who has?

I personally have not used it, but from what I have read in the past, its probably best to stay away from it

I'm not running boost. But on another car i ordered 2, one for me and one for a buddy. We never got a chance to install them because the quality was so bad. It was terrible. I called Brother's Performance which usually will not give refunds and we talked and then he gave me a contact at BBK. The guy at BBK was a Dick. Brother's wound up refunding my money and paid to have it shipped back, he said he would deal with BBK his self.

Edlebrock Vic Jr with EFI ports and 90* elbow.
Great for boost. Will need to buy the Edlebrock fuel rail with it.

Still end up cheaper than the BBK intake

I read an article in 5.0Magazine about the BBK Intake......the numbers were HORRIBLE!

They definitely look cool, but there are better options out there...
