its a waste of money because it actually gives you less flow into the engine so if you want to go ahead but dont expect any performance gain just expect a lighter wallet

Vehicles are only as good as the person maintaining it.

People have made comments to me about mine as well. Hell, I paid $500 for it with a bad engine. I probably have another $1300 or so in repairs now but it's paid for and Rangers have a good reliabilty reputation. I don't think I did so bad.
