COBB AND a tune. I had the Perrin intake (the one they claim is safe to run on a stock tune), lost power and had an occasional sputter.

2009's have a different intake setup, there is no longer a "snorkus" drawing air from the wheel well and/or panel. It's actually more like a ram air setup with it drawing air from the front grill. So that being said, you could still get cold air if you kept the factory piece on that draws air from the grill (which is possible).
