What makes you think the stock AirBox isn't plenty sufficient already?. From what I heard a CAI is money lost that could be spent elsewhere.. PVO from what I have seen and heard designed a pretty damn good stock intake, and if I recall the title for this topic is "Best bang for your buck", therefore a S1 would be a better bang for the buck then a CAI.

A large turbo kit will utilize a true 3" mandrel bent intake way before it will benefit from a S1 ECU. BTW, i have both Have you ever looked at the accordian bend at the turbo or the 90 degree bend at the airbox that is actually kinked? You must also realize that Mopar made a production based intake, it would cause liability issues if they made every car from the factory with a CAI because dumbasses would intake water off the ground when it rained.

On the subject of s1 it does prevent you CEL from comming on with the BDJ's exhaust.....so not all is lost

I have the Psi-Fi intake, so I am not totally againt CAI's, I jus't dont think they are too great in the "Bang for your buck" category. Just my opinion.

Got a Question, I'm after 450-500 horse, now I have stage 2 and I just ordered agps turbo kit. Would it be better for me to get a return fuel line system or larger injectors? If I only need one or the other. I was going to try it on stage 2 injectors w/ a return fuel line setup, pump, and AFC but if I can do it w/ just a pump,injectors, and afc I will.

Mods: Agp 60-1 turbo, agp fmic, agp intake, rc750 injectors, tial bov, nx intercooler sprayer, nx direct port nitrous, mopar stage2, msd dis-4 ignition, bdj exhaust, greddy profec b, apex-i safc, 24/8/15 MT drags, and who knows what else.

But no one has even answered my question yet.

I thought it was odd that I'm not using any of the mods listed at the beginning of this thread yet I'm running high 12's at 106mph+ every pass. Total cost is < $400 without the tires. See sig for best time.

Not trying to knock the well thought out list (which I agree with), just thought it was funny

Just get 750's and no return line for now. I assure you it will work great, and you can always add a return line later if you think you need one. The S2 injectors with return line works OK but you'll make way more power with the 750's and no return. So just pump, injectors, and SAFC.

thanks, I think stage 2 is turning out to be more of a waste every day.
