The advantage you get with the PLP is that you don't hear the intake . . . I've seen a number of people who have complained about the noise of the SRT and JoeZ and K&N ram-air intakes (sounds like an espresso machine etc.) and they've actually taken them back off after buying them due to the noise. I think all of the intakes except the SRT are only good for an extra +8rwhp with the SRT making I think +15 due to the chip . . .
IMHO - unless you're getting the SRT with the chip - I'd go with something that retains the stock airbox but uses a high-flow filter like the ProLexPerformance intake . . . it'll be much quieter but you'll get the same rwhp gains.
I myself have the PLP intake and I plan on getting a Greddy eManage or an Apex S-AFCII unit to change my a/f mixture with some dyno-tuning . . . I didn't like the idea of having the hard-wired chip from SRT that I couldn't tune / tweak to my car's characteristics - but that's just me. A PLP SFI + eManage / S-AFCII is only a little more expensive than the SRT intake (although you have the hidden cost of dyno-tuning for at least an hour which is probably another $125) . . .
I dunno - I've heard the ram-air intakes - not a big fan of the swishing noise they make under the hood - and apparently there are a number of people who have swapped them back out for the same reason.
I never really did much research on them. Just looking for opinons. I will probably end up with the SRT. I was also curious to see if anyone else had the Stillen one.sacs0404 said:One thing I don't get is how come you don't know what Intakes are good for our car, but you are a .NET Enthusiast with 1,187 posts.

intakes that dont give cells are plp with any drop in filter, joe z with any drop in filter, srt with r-ecu, k&n fipk, aem short ram, injen gen 3, & rod millen.Split2nd said:Does anyone else have the Stillen intake? I like it and all, but I have had a CEL since I put it on. What intakes are there that don't give u a CEL at all, besides the SRT? Thanks and +rep for helpers.
