A friend from work suggested that I put in a Ram Air set up in my car since it's just the SE and a 4cyl and that I would get more hp and it would sound better. I remember people here saying that the Ram Air set up was basically a gimick so I'm not exactly sure what I want to do. I told him that and he said that there was this cone shaped air filter (I forget what it's called...) that I would put in and have a setup where my air box and stuff is basically removed/bypassed so that I would get a lot of forced air and it would increase hp and sound awesome.. thinking like a Cold Air intake (just like an awesome whoosh of air all the time (I think thats what he said.... he uses the word awesome a lot.))

Also... found this on eBay... sounds kinda good yet kinda bad... what you guys think?

While I'm at it... my performance seems to be... off lately. It seems like I have to really push the pedal down to get my usually power out of it. Did a 0-60 and my time was worse too so something is obviously up... all the filters and stuff are only like a month old so...... idk.

Aprils fools, I hope.



If not.... don't buy either of those ebay items, for the love of god.
And your friend is stupid. Just get a CAI

Ugh where do I start... the "Ram Air" for our cars is useless. Those items you posted are even more useless. Check out the sticky in the ALL GO section for mods.

Yea... i'm not buying that **** on ebay, haha

I don't really know too much about performance mods so I was serious about my friend... though he can be... wrong at times. He once wanted to put a GT badge on his Alero GLS...

I really would like to just get a CAI... seems like the best option atm but all the CAI's I've seen are for the V6.. anyone know where I can find a good CAI for a 4cyl?

Talked to him again and basically the idea is to shorten the path the air takes. My air filter would be moved some place under the battery or in that area and the path would be more direct and forced. He did something very similar with his S10 and it actually worked out really well.
