I feel I might be worrying about nothing but I am a little worried about the whole "running lean" issue.
Either a lightly used unit, or if and when steeda has an extra sale. Although strictly speaking others do also resell steeda parts other than just Steeda themselves.
Of course when I still had my SEL I bought a steeda intake for ~14 more than a used one from Ebay from Steeda directly, although their customer service is a bit lacking as far as following up with tracking numbers and shipments.
