Going to start off with a drop in filter then maybe upgrade to a SRI later on.

No need for a full one or tune.

I did the homemade SRI, taking out the whole assembly from throttle body to fender air box. I cut the MAF tube and used the Spectre filter. Not the best filter, but a AEM dryflow will be ordered up soon. Never a wetness issue, or CEL. I love it for $20!

I got the fswerks cai on craigslist for $60 bucks, it was a great steal lol. But yeah I automatically found a difference in the tone at high rpms and even a boost in acceleration. I do not have the ITG filter that came with it as the one i bought used was in bad shape so I put a K&N filter on there, words great

Sounds great and adds throttle response !

Here's my steeda intake with a k&n filter (came this way with a worn-out filter when I got it but I put a new filter)

Anyone with opinions on the CFM intake with the AEM bypass?
Also any ideas how effective the bypass is to prevent hydrolock?

I've ran the FSWerks intake almost the whole life of my car. I've never even experienced a hiccup in the 70k+ miles I've had it installed.

I have a K&N on my 2012 and I love it. Definitely noticed anincrease on the butt dyno. Mpg increases are minimal but sound is awesome. Has a little boxer like rumble to it.
