You gonna get a dyno before you add an intake? Personally, I'd say save your dyno money until you add some big HP add-ons (turbo). I have practically every bolt on mod for my car, and although the butt-dyno tells me the car feels faster, a real dyno pull would probably say otherwise. I even did the 1/4 mile @ Hawaii Raceway Park before and after I installed intake/exhaust, and my times were negligible. I spent close to $1000 on bolt on mods:

$450 Magnaflow Cat-Back
$150 Custom 2.25" Flex Pipe
$175 AEM CAI
$114 Focus Central 60MM Throttle Body
$135 50% UDP (sold last summer)

Even after all that money, and so called "performance" adders, my car is still slow as sh!t. After installing the exhaust, all I got was a nice sounding Focus. Take a lesson from me...don't waste your money on bolt on mods
