$500 or AFE or $2500 for GruppeM? You pick.

Frankly an intake is a waste for our cars. Get a filter and call it a day. You'll save a ton of money.

We have no MAF in this car so what is risky

Answer-Nothing.

Now not to say intakes are useless but that is not the reason!

Hmm thanks for pointing this out. I haven't dug around much under the hood but I noticed a sensor wire where the MAF would normally be. As per your comment I checked out real OEM to find it's just a temperature sensor (#10). Thanks.
