the zoodad is when you cut a hole in the rad suport infront of the intake to make "ram-air"
the foil delete is when you remove the foil from the driverside intercooler pipe, makes the turbo a little louder and looks much better

The foil delete is for sound only, no performance, the zoodad is one that all PSD'S should have done. Many ways to do it, I prefer a series of smaller holes placed close together. As for your superchips, you are better off without it. I hope the PO had gauges when running those tunes!!! He also should have had intake and exhaust mods before buying a supercraps unit.

I might do the zoodad deal this weekend, I didn't think of using a bunch of small holes, I have only seen the one large hole done. NOw does this mod only help if you have the stock filter? It seems it would only really help in you have the tube that feed's air into the filter like the stock box has. My dad has the AFE stageII and it doesn't seem like it would have the same effect with that. Now that I think of it the S&B filter would also work with it since it has the inlet tube, thats the dang filter i'm going to get!

Oh yeah Why the Heck is it called "Zoodad"?

It will help with any intake, but especially the stock airbox or like me with the AIS intake.
