gives it more airflow for sure and a throatier sound at wot
Yeah I can beat cars off the line, but usually when I mess around, its on the highway... As for the zetec swap, I wanted to for a while, but it would be expensive, and would take a lot of time. More time than I have. And the car would be out of use for a bit, which I can't have. As for the Intake, I might do that. Does it help the power at all?
