Picking Up a New Intake.

Buying the Injen SP7024 from a local Craigslist seller (it pretty much looks brand spanking new) and has about 1000 miles on it. I am getting it for $140. I hadn't intended to buy anything but the best deal I could find for a new one was like 285 and I felt this was a pretty good deal.

I'm going to install it as a short ram air at first since that won't take much work.

Nice pick up. This was my first mod and I told my gf that it and a tune would be it. Lots of $$$ later we race almost every weekend!!

I had one on my old cavalier and i liked it. Unfortunately this is an automatic and there won't be daily revving to hear the whoosh sound. =(

If I go short ram air for now, I don't need to remove the front bumper right?

I will probably just keep it short ram style because I think it will look better. And of course when its done I am going to talk about how I gained about 20ish horsepower and an extra 10 mpg.

Of course.

When in reality it probably gives you around 5~ WHP/TQ gains across the board and you only see gains in MPG when you're nice to it. Which is...never.

On the right track, but not true. 10mpg increase will never happen from an intake, for SRI, expect maybe .5mpg increase. For horsepower, maybe 10ish at the crank and roughly 5-6 whp, torque is where it counts
