Tom,
Aren't these intakes (Including the OEM intake) designed to move air into the intake system more efficiently while the car is in motion (Not a RAM air system but similar)?
Also, at what point would you do a tune (ECU tune like a Dinan)? After an intake, pulley, exhaust mod? Or would you do a tune after doing just an intake mod like this?
