    for a cold air intake u need a tune. for a short ram u do not. the stock intakes for our cars are very good u really don't need an aftermarket one. that being said i still bought an aftermarket one. it's worth it just for the sound

    Sorry, but you have been misinformed.

    Some CAIs are perfectly fine with the stock MAF-scaling (e.g., APS 65mm), some aren't (e.g., Injen). Some SRIs are perfectly fine with the stock MAF-scaling (e.g., K&N Typhoon), some aren't (e.g., Perrin).

    Either way, MAF-scaling is good, as even the OEM airbox can use some tweaking.

    Don't waste your time with that intake unless you get the heatshield with it. Be aware you're not going to be making any power gains with an intake and catback.

    thats perfectly fine with me. im looking for sound and fun. just keeping the car reliable and mostly stock since its my daily driver and i do alot of driving. ill toy around the suspension later on down the line. catback, intake(maybe), suspesion, a set of rims, and thats about it. once i get a beater pick up truck sooner or later, then ill put more money into this thing. its just so damn expensive!! lol

    If all you're looking for is the sound, try doing the silencer delete mod. Search around on the forum here, it'll add a bit of snarl at WOT, and will let you hear your turbo and BPV functioning too.
