I remember when these POS intakes first came out. They were puking gas and oil all over the place and thankfully BKK stopped selling them. Can't believe people still are buying these used.

I always thought it was a good idea, just executed poorly. The symmetrical tunnel-ram-style upper and the open-air ports in the lower (like an Edelbrock "Air Gap") were unique in the field and had promise, in theory. In practice it was no better than anything else on the market performance-wise, and as this thread pointed out, build quality was poor, so it was kind of doomed to extinction.

That whole intake sucked. Maybe 1 in 3 was even straight enough to mount without leaking right out of the box. One of the remaining 2 would have issues after some heat cycles.

SD cars didn't seem to mind them as much. They were good for some of those guys and matched up well on setups with better heads. Every dyno I recall, puts it in-line with a tubular GT-40/Lightning intake with different peaks and valleys and it was a pain in the balls to use with boost.
