The plastic intakes are cooler. They do not heat up fast like a metal one will

Air is moving fast enough that the air won't heat up that much. But plastic over metal for sure. There's a reason why the stock intakes are made like they are. Ford done the best with the stock intakes that its not necessary to upgrade them.

Ram air is only good at high speeds. If you are not going fast enough you can not force enough air in.
They have plastic after market air intakes that are better than the factory ones. I have a metal one to tell you the truth. They do not make a plastic one for mine.

Tune for $20? What the hell? It's not a musical instrument! You don't need a ricer "tune" that's gonna mess up your ride. Do it professionally. PVC intakes are the exact same thing as any CAI out there. You're paying for the name, not the product

If you don't have a tuner, he will probably use a chip. And $20 for a chip sounds like a no go. Tuners go for about $150 locked and cost about $150 to unlock. New tuners cost about $300 and you still need to buy tunes for that. Some places charge about another $150 to get tunes.
If you really want a tune ill get you in contact with someone you can buy the tuner from them or buy your own. And it's free tunes for life. I can't give you the price, you have to talk to them directly

If you think about it, it's just a hollow tube for air to go through. No damn difference other than the sticker on the side of it
