I'm looking for an intake. It MUST be designed and manufactured in Italy.

Any out there?

Not a fan of American cold air intake brands?

Any reason for specifically wanting something made in Japan, rather than America or anywhere else?

Don't even bother opening up this can of worms. Everyone has their preference and some are more vocal about it.

I own the Fiat because it's Italian, and I have family that work in Torin for Fiat. So everything put on the car will be Italian.

Exhaust is ordered coming straight from Italy. Brakes, as soon as they're ready. Wheels Italian will be ordered next month. Even the tires will be coming from Italy.

Which is why it is important I get an Italian intake

Might be interesting to see your Italian inspired, USA designed/built, Mexico assembled Italian modded 500. Post pics of parts and your impression of them, might be nicer than the US based offerings we currently have.

I truly think the assembly instructions are in Italian for the Mexican worker too. Italian design, American Engine, built in Mexico

Even the European spec 500 are not manufactured in Italy. It is impossible to be a purest under these circumstances.
And with that comment, I must insert this. Twój włoski samochód wyprodukowany jest w Polska.

Give 500 Madness a ring. They might have a Italian intake.

You know your car was made in Mexico, engine from Detroit. Japanese Transmission. :)

Just having a bit of fun with you, it'll be interesting how it all turns out and it's cool you are trying to go with as much Italian products as possible, good luck.:cool:

I did it! I found an Italian company that wants to develop a carbon fiber intake for the US version of the 500.

Stay tuned for updates

Can you make it like the Corsa? I hate the ones that hang down in front of the wheels. I like it up top where I can show it off. :)
