    Pretty sure their panel filter is foam, which isn't ideal for filtration vs a paper alternative. The tune? Meh, it's still a base map. If it's any additional expense, I wouldn't bother.

    I use their map. I like it. The maps are free, as well as any upgraded maps (if you go stage 2 later). As good as a pro-tune? No.

    If I were you I would call up Chris at Perrin and tell them you don't want the foam fiter and see if they can drop $40 off the price. I did and it worked.

    Thanks guys, Well since the foam filter is not a good idea how about and intake would the cobb one work better and what is that hydrolock you guys speak of when it comes to the aem intake and the perrin one?

    Hydrolock is when you suck water in through an intake and into the engine...Can't compress water, so it locks up the engine cause it can't fire. Really only becomes a problem when idiots drive through water that is way too deep to submerge the filter element.

    A Cobb intake is ok...AEMs generally net better results, but I'm not sure if the Perrin-sold APs have maps for intakes included on them. Follow map notes for what mods you can and can't have with APs.

    HYRDROLOCK BAD!

    Usually only a problem if you play U-boat with your car.

    Perrin has maps for their intake. I don't think they recommend other intakes for their maps, but I could be wrong. If you get a cobb intake then go with the cobb map. Cobb also has maps for AEM intakes. No matter what set up you have, don't drive through really deep water, it is just never a good idea. If you want to drive through deep water get a jeep
