ram intake and cold air will give you the same amount of hp so that's up to you. just look around you'll be able to find a cheap one. if you went with a injen you can have both ram or cai

looks good man. you should take out the plastic neck below the oil cap. itll still fit on perfectly just closer to the vc

i would suggest either k&n or injen. bot are in the $200's but nice products. if you really want to do an intake under $100 though, your best bet would be to make your own.

and theres not much difference between cai and sri so its basically up to you

nice job painting the valve cover! looks great.
like b-low said, you could remove the oil cap spacer to make it look a little better. and id be careful with the cheap intakes. i have heard bad stories about plastic tubes, and cold weather areas. dont want plastic shrapnel trying to get into your engine.
oh i just saw your in GA. prolly dont have to worry about to cold of weater. id still go with a tested name brand intake though.

that valve cover looks sweet., i was thinking about getting ine polished but i think i may just paint it instead. is there any gasket to replace or is it just silicone?
