yeah im working on getting it all figured out. Im going to get it close to a good in-between for forced induction and naturally aspirated. Cause for a N/A motor the plenum needs to be 80% of the volume the motor and forced induction is 150% so im probably going to make it a little bigger the 183ci or maybe right at it.

that along with the spacer should definitely see some improvments. i really think the larger throttle body alone would do good. the 3.0 is such a breather, i think whatever air it can get would help. and a CAI only does as good as its weakest link which is the TB.
