Not a dumb question at all..

Well SIA stands for secondary air injection. Basically its a little air pump that sucks air from your intake filter and injects it into your exhaust system. The point of this is to cool the exhaust temperatures and make the cat more efficient, producing lower emissions.

You could get the RS header but you would have a CEL. However you can get a tune from trifecta and have the SAI deleted from the computor completely like it wasn't ever even there.

If you have it you will see a small tube coming out of the top of your air filter box and you have a valve assembly sitting on top of a welded-steel exhaust manifold (not a cast iron exhaust manifold)

Use the search tool next time there was just another posting on what SAI was like 2 weeks ago , and you might feel better gains if you get the intake first.
