    couple of questions.

    Okay i keep going back and forth between buying a cold air and just doing a snorkul delete.
    Water in the airbox doesn't sound good. but neither does buying a 300 dollar cold air when i could buy an elbow and pannel filter for way less.
    So could someone help enlighten me on this subject?

    Also why are cobb access ports so damn expensive?
    Anyone know a cheaper alternative or a place to get them cheaper?

    You don't need a CAI. A better option than an AP is a protune. It's cheaper and you usually get more bang for your buck. Use the search feature to get a lot more information.

    water ingestion is more likely with a CAI than the elbow delete.

    The only reason that I have a Cobb SRI is because I got a killer deal on it -- picked one up for $15... but the snorkus delete is even cheaper! If I had known about that back then....

    Some tuners support the AP - so you can flash between stock and the protune on the fly.

    Also - the AP is so easy to use.

    By the way... I did the snorkus delete and wasn't happy. I replaced the snorkus with the elbow ($60). The car idled rough and felt like it was going to stall. I also feel like I actually lost power at the low end- it went back to normal when I put the snorkus back on.

    When I went stage 1 (then later stage 2), I used the AP and it cautioned to only use the stock air intake - so I haven't tried the delete again since the car runs so well.

    so i should just leave my intake alone pretty much?
    and invest that money into a downpipe maybe instead?

    Technically, that is true. A ProTune is a custom map created for your car using Cobb's ProTUNER software.

    However, it is often used on forums to simply describe a custom tune for the car (be it with the AP, OpenECU, Ecutek, UTEC, etc.).
