Is it alright to change the air intake system and not get the 180 T-stat right away? I'm a little nervous about doing stuff to the car that might cause it to not operate right, especially since I'm taking a big road trip in a couple of weeks. Also, is there any programming changes needed for the new air intake system?
The intake systems I have been finding on eBay run about $60 total (with shipping). That to me seems way to cheap, especially when the K&N intakes run $150-200. Is this how much people here have paid for their intake systems?
I've been looking into just replacing the stock air filter with a K&N filter, although I have a feeling people on these boards are not proponents of that.
