    A tune is not really necessary for an intake. But your $$$ can better spent elsewhere than on an intake.

    Easy as in terms of install? Pretty up front. all you need is 2screwdrivers (flat-head and philips), ratchet with extension and i believe a size 8 socket.

    I particularly like dealing with JSC Speed for parts, but for things they don't carry I usually order from IAG Performance. Both have great prices, and ship quickly, and are very pleasant on the phone.

    The hardest part about the intake install is just angling the parts and tools the right way when you're working with the limited amount of real estate we've got in that corner of the engine bay.

    Like was said earlier, you aren't going to notice much from an intake alone. You don't have to tune for the K&N Typhoon or the AEM if that's the only mod on the car... I don't have any info on other intakes though I'm sure there are some that can be run on the stock map.

    What you will notice however is the sound -- it's fantastic If that's worth $200+ to you, then by all means go for it. Just know that you're not going to get much more than sound with this mod.

    For the best bang-for-your-buck single mod to a stock car, I'd say look into an OpenSource tune.
