Hi All,

I looked around and couldn't find an answer to this question.

At what point do you need to have a cold air intake on the car when you're modifying the engine? I've heard some people say that you never need to do it because there's always going to be enough air, and others say that it's the first thing you should do.

I'm planning to replace the engine at some point with this setup:

IAG Stage 2 Short Block
Process West TMIC
Killer B Oil Pickup / Oil Baffle
Invidia Catted Downpipe
Boost Control Solenoid

I'm also considering adding this to the build as well and doing it all at the same time:

Cobb Flex Fuel Package
Injector Dynamics Injectors 1050cc
Deatschworks Fuel Pump 65c

I'm hoping that the setup will get me to a range of 350hp/350trq - 400hp/400trq with Flex Fuel. Will the lack of a modified intake hold back the potential of the build?

Thank you.

The factory box can support fair power. With what you are looking at you may as well do it.
