Perhaps you should have re-worded your thread to say something like this:
I know that many intakes have been talked about and discussed and used, but I want to know specifically about the GMPP Intake. I haven't found any info on it. I want first hand opinions from people who have used it.
Chances are nobody has used it because they realize that a CAI is going to be a better gain and is more worth the money where as the GMPP and other SRI's are not so much worth the money.
AND, I did respond to your 2nd and 3rd question. I gave you a price since you were wondering. I also gave you the info about reprogramming not being needed. I can in fact tell you that you don't need anything done with a Tech2 or anything of that sort. I didn't state it that way, but that's how it is.
Your question just doesn't make a lot of sense...the first one...
"If short ram intakes don't give a power boost for the 2.2, or cause problems, why does GM sell one for the vehicle?"
Why the hell would GM sell it if it doesn't work or causes problems? Same with other companies. And no, the simple answer isn't to make money, because people rely on other people such as here for opinions so when one person tries it and it doesn't work, word of mouth happens and the company selling them won't make much.
Re-word it...it'll make more sense for someone trying to answer it.

Here's some intake info for you.
Just scroll down the page and you'll find info. It's not great info, but it shows a link to someone who has one...their results on a dyno.
