Keith...

   I am sure this has been asked and answered in the multitude of threads we have on this...but I wanted to confirm (before ordering) that if I order the GFB and the throttle inlet pipe...and I am connecting it up to my stock system...everything I need will be included...no trips to HD for parts....  Is this correct?  Thanks mate..

I split this question off so the shipping thread will stay confined to shipping questions.

If you install our throttle body inlet pipe and GFB, you will be left with one open hose on your stock system. That's the recirculation line from your original bypass. It does not see pressure so it can be plugged with just about anything, but the kit does not include a plug for this.

All other parts are included.

Your stock intake has a hole in it. This hole either has to be plugged or used. It's hard to remove Smiley

If you get the complete FM intake package (intake, throttle body pipe, GFB) then your stock parts will all be removed and all parts will be included. If you try to use your stock intake with the throttle body pipe and the GFB, you will have an extra hole in the intake.

 I see that in some cases, people have aftermarket intakes (AEM/Injen), but may want to use the TB inlet pipe and GFB BOV... since these intakes were made to use the stock BPV, these intakes also have a hole in them for the recirculating line -- correct?

Any intake that was designed to be installed on an otherwise-stock MSM should have a recirculating fitting. Ours is no different. I don't know if AEM/Injen include a plug. The difference is that you can't ask them! Bill's hunting for that plug (it's a really weird size, thank you for that Mazda).

That's an excellent point. We're doing an about-face (and the shipping department is ready to kill me). The plug will come with the GFB valves. After all, that's when you need to plug the recirc fitting. If you get the complete intake kit (intake, throttle body pipe, GFB) you'll also get it. If you buy simply the intake you will NOT get a plug, because we have not supplied you with something that requires plugging.

I'll give up our supplier on this one. Go to NAPA and ask for a 0.75" by-pass cap (their terminology). All that searching and all I had to do was walk across the street!

Keith, just a recommendation. I would swap out those Brady clamps that come with the intake. Those clamps with the 4-spacers really sucked for me. I broke two of them when trying to tighten down the intake and another when tighening the TB Pipe. I had some replacements on hand so I swapped those real quick. They made this loud pinging sound and then wouldn't tighten anymore. I'll be replacing them all tonight. I wonder if anyone else had the same issue.
