    what exactly do you mean by "long ram air intake". Are you refering to an intake that draws air in from the wheel well, commonly known as a Cold Air Intake?

    There is already a ton of info posted on this site about intakes, do a quick search.

    The gist: Leave the stock airbox alone.

    If you must have the turbo sound:

    Remove the stock intake silencer (search for instructions)

    OR

    Buy a COBB, K&N Typhoon or SPT Short Ram Intake.

    Our MAF placement is key, and only a few SRI's are known to not skew MAF readings. The 3 above are recommended by most. I have the K&N:

    IMO, Do this and buy a $50 K&N drop in in filter, cheap and I can hear my turbo easily

    thanks for that, i had a feeling that 10 dollar intake from ebay was too good to be true

    i guess that second article explains why I have a hard time getting over 5500 rpm
