I am ALWAYS looking (have an '04 and wouldn't mind another) The cheapest one I have found that runs was $11,500 and it looked like someone spent $20 bucks on the paint and let their dog live in it.

As for OP if you are looking to replace any stock parts I have most everything off mine, feel free to PM before you go buy new stuff. I might even have a spare access port, but its likely a V1 or V2.

Who told you it doesn't need a tune? What are your fuel trims?

Absolutely wrong. Will it blow up your engine - highly unlikely. Is your MAF scaling correct? NOPE!

A new CAI without a tune is simply a noise-maker.

So the 30K I've got in my 2004 wagon... where does that fall on your 'piss on your parade' scale?
