+ Rep because of a good compilation of pic's and information. Though it is one of the most self explanatory mod's you could ever do.

If your talking about the SRT ecu-R its just a add on piggyback to adjust AF due to the over size intake pipe SRT uses (cant run srt kit with out it)...Its not too hard to install but if you dont feel comfortable find a shop or local member that has done it before...

Yeah I might just do the Joe-Z Intake Pipe with the K&N Replacement Filter. The SRT Might come in Later when I get some more money.

Yes that would be good choice ....9 rwhp ...Ive ran the JoeZ type intake with KN filter and its a great combo and in my opinion the best short ram air to run on the IS....with the front scoop i would run that instead of any other short ram intake ...SRT has higher numbers but for the HP to $ value , SRT intakes are the worst but they do yeild the most HP but not by much for how much you pay for them too me not worth it ....post up feedback when you get it installed

I agree Bezik777, but you failed to figure in the sound factor... I lost gas mileage with the SRT (only because I like to hear it!)

Going to pick up a used SRT this week. Couple noob questions:

What's best to used...soldering gun or iron?
What kind of soldering wire? (I've heard there are several kinds)

Thanks in advance!
