Good lord! The same part for almost double the price?
They're nuts. They ARE correct in that they're not being produced anymore but you can still find them. IF you want one bad enough, the e-bay one is at least CLOSE to the MSRP.
I have one sitting in my garage. I know there are a couple of other guys here with them in their garage too.
If it just hits the Cold Air Tube, get the FRPP resonator delete tube (about 60 bucks, IIRC) and that takes care of that. If it hits your blower, you'd have to use lowered motor mounts to make it fit.
The problem I had with MINE was that it hits the hood and holds it up just a bit. I didn't notice it buy my neighbor (and not "a car guy") did. The hood had a bow in it about 1/4" high where the STB went across. I found the marks in the hood blanket where it was hitting so I removed my hood blanket. It still held the hood up but now only by about 1/8". So I removed it. I still want to try using it but I'll have to put it in my hydraulic press and make it *slightly* straighter than it came from the factory.
And for what it's worth, not all of us using those have the problem Only a few of us have. There's LOTS of guys running them on a 2010+ car without hitting the hood so I'm guessing they're not made in a tight tolerance jig (each bar is apparently different).
