i remember reading about people having problems with aem intake.... somethin about a grommet coming loose and gettin sucked into the turbo and bending fins. Im not sure if this was a concern with the short ram though, i would definately do a search and research this before put your money into anything. enjoy the car and be careful. cheers

your in california so look up www.wawanesa.com great rates.......
i pay $150 a month for a 2003 celica and the 04 srt-4.. with 2 drivers. Full coverage, $350 deductable, 50/100,000 coverage and every other bell and whistle and im 22

i wouldnt go with a intake.. they dont really do all that much for you on this car. If anything just get a drop in filter..

A short throw shifter will help you drive it better.....
any of the Mopar staged upgrades include your "electronics"...

i would look on here for used stage 2 upgrades or used stage 1's..... and a Mopar S.T.S.
:thumbsup:

whoa homie, ive heard alot of bad things about any short rams on the srt4......since the srt's stock airbox iacts like a cold air, putting on an aftermarket short ram sometimes actually hurts your cars performance, and takes away horsepower.......even if it did help, the gain would be extremly minimal, listen to moltenice and get the drop in k&n filter....

DUDE definately dont go with the aem short ram intake they dont fit too good and they rub all against the battery and can cause a fire under your hood, not what you want. However if you go with the AEM COLD AIR intake it fits better with no problems, and gives you way more HP gain then the short ram would. Costs $200 something, go to modernperformance.com
