Just debaffle the stock airbox, it's a free mod, you're not going to see much in the way of gains from a cold air intake, and pretty much anything that you get from Pacific Mall will probably reduce the horsepower unless it has a proper heatshield.

True. Besides our stock airbox IS a CAI (pulls air from outside). It is however restricted with that front snorkel piece so I took it off and made a *cough* temporary cardboard heatshield.
