yes, i see how its all a bunch of BS.... i see how the colder air helps the engine, but theres nothing actually in a cold air intake that makes the air actually cold... its just the same as outside air, which is pretty much what im using now.. correct? and what about that intake mod... there a tube that you delete... are you familiar?

There is a lot of controversy with that topic as well. I have done it and love it!

It will not give you any better performance I did it just for the sound.

You can try it. You really can't mess anything up and if you dont like it or think it did nothing it just as easy to put it back together.

Here is the How to:
