Get the intake. But just so you know, I built my short intake for $60-$70 with parts from Autozone instead of paying $90 + shipping.

It's an HID kit from xtralights.com. I love them. As for the intake, the parts are made by Spectre which I bought at Autozone. What I used was a 60* bend off the trottle body, a 6" stright piece and 2 couplers. 1 on the throttle body the other connecting the MAF to the 6" piece. Clamped the filter right onto the MAF. There's also another piece with 3 holes in it for sensors which I used for the IAT. Waste of money thogh because I had to drill one of the holes larger anyway. Might as well just drill the hole in the 6" piece and you're done.
