Sounds exaggerated...but an intake will help with turbo spool

I have one for sale if you're interested. Hardly used. I'm going back to the stock airbox when I start tuning my UTEC.

Let me know if you're interested.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

Stacy why didn't you advertise the k&N for sale earlier. I just got my used Perrin a bit ago and put a K&N filter on it. Oh well.

just curious, why are you reverting back to the factory air box, when you can maximize your K&N with the UTEC?

Unless you are pushing over 300hp the stock air box (especialy with a drop-in high flow filter) is just not enough of a restriction quite yet.Plus the stock box is engineered quite well.Has anyone noticed the velocity stack right befor the MAF?

Sorry Matt, I've had it in the classifieds for a while now, just thought that I'd offer.

Anyways, I don't really feel the need for it. I'm not really pressed to sell it and I don't want any screwy maf readings when I'm tuning.
