What did you put on for an intake? P.S. I tried to join the ZETEC Crew but i lost track of the numbers with over a year long thread-- I think the founder jumped ship too but not sure. Maybe i'll start a new crew and call it the ZETEC Zingers or something.

First thing I put on was a intake (AEM Short Ram) and no I wouldn't do it all over again. I should have boosted in the first place
