I was wondering if upgrading to stage 1 would be recommended for an everyday use srt4? Also what is the best kind of CAI to get, a full or short ram? I would appreciate any help I can get

Save your money on the intake, unless you just want something shiny to look at. They really don't do a whole lot, performance wise.
There's no problem adding a stage one computer to a daily driven car. You might as well get a new wastegate actuator while you're at it. Use the money you saved on the intake. :)

No Prob.

I drive my car to & from work every day, w/stage 1., it drives just as stage 0 does, as long as you keep your foot out of it., i have a short ram intake & K&N filters also.______________5TOEZ__________

actually, i dunno what everyone's deal is against short ram intakes, but i don't like driving mine with out the intake on it. the throttle response is much slower with the air box as compared to with the intake...

I second that.

third!!!!!!!

I would never go back to stock after 4 years of short rams on various cars. The short ram is better that any other if you really know how to drive. Throttle response is out of this world.

problem with the AEM short ram was heat soak. Since that sucker sits right above the tranny area it can gain a lot of heat when racing or running the car hard. For everyday driving and the occasional pedal stomping I dont think it will be that big of a factor.

As for stage 1, All I have to say is:


As for CAI, I myself am looking into the Iceman. I've seen their products on countless na neons, and I like their work.

I have the K&N typhoon currently set up for winter so it's in short ram mode. To be honest, I don't notice a difference between SR and CA. Just watch out for deep puddles when in CA mode. Mine is also a heatsoak. I thought about buying a wrap heat shield for it, but can't justify spending $70 on it. Maybe wrap it in aluminum foil..........hmmm....anyways, S1 will not matter if it's a daily driver. Depends what you plan on doing with the car. If you want to mod in the future...get it. If not, then don't. hope I helped a little

I agree that throttle response is quicker and all with a good intake, but I think that if this is the first thing this guy is doing to modify his car, his money is best spent elsewhere. The average intake is around $200, and doesn't add much power. A wastegate actuator is much cheaper, and produces more noticeable gains. I think taking control of your car's boost away from the computer is the first thing you should do to get more power.
