Default Injen cai with txs stage 4 yes or no?

should i run the stock intake or my injen cai with the txs stage 4? would it really be worth it to run a stage 4 map tweaked for the injen intake or are the gains not really worth all the trouble? right now either i sell the intake or keep it, trying to decide.

Second that. I'd also like to know if I can run my injen cai with a utec. Heard somewhere that it wouldn't be too bad. Not like the aem cai. I really don't want to go back to stock.

This seems to be the question of the month, but most of us asking this question have no choice but to run out intakes because our stock box doesnt fit because we have FMIC. I say if you dont have a FMIC then you should run your stock box because according to 85% of the people here its better or equal without the problem of the MAF uncertainties.

I used to have an injen and I swear it helped. However, all the tuners say no. I went back to the stock air box but lately decided to buy another one and test it once and for all. Give me a pm in a couple of weeks and I should be through with my testing by then.

I have the dd dyno software so I was going to do logs before and after and dyno runs before and after. Hopefully, whatever difference there is will show up. I honestly don't expect a difference but curiosity has the best of me.

Default Cold air intakes

Are you gouys talking about the higher egt's from the cold air intakes or is there another problem with them? If it is a matter of higher egt's then I recomend the Perrin short ram or cold air intakes. I had the aem on my car and was seeing half throttle egt's of almost 1600. I put the perrin short ram and dropped my egt to 1400. the Aem and the injen cai's trick your maf so you run leaner (I think that is how it works?). I hope this is on topic.

the problem i was addressing is if it was really worth it to do extra tweaking for an aftermarket intake when you can just use the stock airbox. the aem leans it out more than the injen i'm told. the injen is actually very good at not changing maf that much, but any intake but stock will change the maf reading i guess. i just wanted to know if it was worth it to keep the intake or not.

Doesn't the Turboxs car that ran 11's have an intake, because I have their wrx catalog and they showed a pic of the motor and it had an short ram intake but they didn't say anything about it.

properly designed intakes with proper tuning are fine. people harp on cai's because SOOOO many newbies bolt on a cai and a bov and a few weeks later start a thread like "HELP!! my car runs like crap! I have the following high performance mods: cai, bov, and under car neon kit".

the key is an intake that doesnt mess up the maf, proper tuning and not worrying about it until youre forced to because you cant use the stock airbox.
