Don't buy it!!!! It won't do anything. It will only give you a whistling sound.

Well I'm thinking of buying both that and the JBA headers for it. Is it really that worthless?

Summitracing has a section for gas mileage and suggests one. They are marketed as HP increase. The purpose is to increase the air speed as it enters the intake manifold, but that 1 inch just isn't going to make the big of a difference. I would more look into decrease the intake air resistance and getting cold air.

Yes it is. Get the headers and save up for a programmer.

Already got the programer. Bought the superchips one after I realized I couldn't spin my 36's in the freaking rain. I was twisted so I went right home and ordered it up. Besides it's real nice knowing how fast you're going instead of always having to gess at it.
