ID:	199037 I'm interested in getting this tune hopefully this summer, as well with the intake. Any advice or precautions I should know about tuning and such? Right now I'm just running an x-pipe and then straight piped. Thanks!

There was a significant difference between the stock and the Airaid I would recommend both CAI & tuner but budget would be the first consideration.

Dyno tests routinely show little or no performance gain from a CAI and increased IATs. The gain is all in the tune with those CAI/Tune kits. Get it for the looks or the intake sound but don't expect the CAI itself to do anything.

I somewhat assumed on the eb4 that an intake would actually be helpful

Dyno test results are product and car specific. This isn't the only mod I have on the car so I agree my statement maybe a comparison of apple vs oranges.

Inforce or enforce? Must be a rule book I didn't read that we need to quantify our opinions since I obviously wasn't providing a conclusion I didn't see it as necessary but a simple respectful disagree is more than appropriate.

you dont gain Hp from a cold air intake unless your running forced induction and need more air. most of the "cold air intakes" are hot air intake due to their open filters. the stock box has a ram air which inproves air temps and flow when driving. I just dont see the need for a cold air intake when the stock box is perfecly fine and better then most cold air intakes.

Personally I do think like the open air box CAI and I'm not using one. I have the airaid dry filter. I choose this mod because it significantly improved the sound of the turbo and the exhaust. Now I ask myself why this happens? It's simple you've increased the amount of air but without the tune (not required) you've thrown the air fuel ratio slightly our of balance creating a tone change. None if this is possible if there wasn't a change in airflow. Nevertheless, I completely agree that this is not a major HP change but even at only 4 HP gain (tune required) just from the air box it's not a bad choice for appearance and easier maintenance.
