Default hector, stage 1 or 2

whut is the performance difference in the stage 1 and stage 2 CAI from adtr... i am wondering this because the only difference is the steel in 1, or aluminum in 2...
also, if i have a k&n, would a performance chip be ok or do i have to get a CAI? thanks!

The Stage 2 is going to resist heat better. It never gets hotter than you can touch with your bare hand.

You can get a chip or a CAI. Either way. But the computer learns so it'* better to do the intake/exhaust first before the chip so your car breathes better and can make more power. I am going to start working on the Bonneville Cat-Back soon so that will help also. And the Bonneville store will be open soon so you can check out what'* available.

not jus yet... i will do that in the summer hopefully... i got a buddy that thinks he can cut the scoops out without wreckin my hood or starting rust, but the problem will be keepin the scoops on the hood when im moving fast... eventually, my friend..

and about that charity! i figure if everyone sends me 1-2 dollars, i can get the chip!
