Duffman, with getting the intake you have the set up I want, the full blown Steeda CAI and FSwerks race exhaust

Going to have to let me know how you like it.

I will indeed. I'm hoping for a nice bump in performance, but sound wise, I am thinking maybe deeper under WOT but not really any louder since the race exhasut is loud.

good luck with that (post pics), I am anxiously awaiting my steeda (I ordered only 13 hours ago lol) as well. Intake wise I think the new batch is in or just about to come in. I highly doubt I get it by the end of the week, but probably some time next week.

I will post pics, yeah they still had SRI in stock so i didnt have to wait. It shouldnt be too complicated of a build, I didnt have the exact measurements of the intake so i couldnt do too much in advance, but basically my design is similar to theirs, i just added a full lid and a will be putting a hole in the bottom for newmissions gates heater hose mod to bring cold air in. I am using aluminum instead of mild steel. Probably will end up costing me about $150 over the intake, but my hope is the extra cold air gives me a couple more HP. I unfortunately might not have time to dyno stock, just after.

good for you on the ingenuity. I said screw it and just paid more for an out the door proven product as I didn't want to mess with it. I did buy the chrome fuse cover too

I hope it works, I am not an engineer, but worst case is i just go buy their heat shield later, so I am not too worried about it. Yeah I like the fuse box cover, I am going to use mine to learn how to fiberglass and carbon fiber(not wrap, build from a mold) but that is a few steps down the road.

What's the difference here between the RAM and the CAI? With the ram do you remove the stock air box? Sorry, modding noob here.
