With every modification you take a step away from the civilized Ford engineering and throw caution to the wind. It will idle rough, probably be cold-blooded, be loud, vibrate more, get worse mileage, require premium fuel, etc... its a bit of a "can of worms" effect when you modify a car a lot.
Plus drag racing isn't exactly friendly on the drivetrain.

Personally I think that's a lot of hassle to run a high 14. Just not enough bang for the buck.

I know this is late but, there is no difference on the inside of the 00 vs 01 and up IM. The 01 and up is a two piece which can blow apart under hi boost. In a NA applacation it won't affect the way the car gets air. I have one only because it was there when I got the motor. I would not invest my money into one.

two words: tur-bo. thats all you need, you can drive it everyday and be fine on low boost, turn it up and run faster than 14's. its basically the same amount as buying all those parts new, and your toddler doesnt have to hold on to the spare tire.
