what to buy with $300

ok as the title says i have an extra $300 to play with and id like to know what would be the best thing to buy with it. I have it narrowed down to a S&B intake or a John Wood valve body. I am planning on a DI chip in the next few months so its kinda a toss up i guess... but i know which one im leaning more towards, id just like yalls opinion to make sure i do the right thing. thanks guys... Also id like exact prices on the two items stated above. I for sure have $300 but i lil more is no prob.

thanks guys

dont know about the JW, but your s&b is gonna run you around 200-250 depending on the seller. id hold out for a the DI and go to napa and do the DIY 6637 intake for 50bucks...

Given the choices, for sure a VB and the DIY filter. Spending all that loot on an intake seems crazy. If the DIY is too loud then go to Ford's AIS.
