Intake most definately. And in my opinion and a few others, S&B is the way to go. Welcome to the org!!!

Mine had a DIY, it looked good but performed like terd. This one is a TON better, I can see it, feel it, and HEAR it. Totally worth the money I think.

Haven't you guys all said head studs are needed when you start modding a lot? Just checking for our new member.
