that'* not even expensive to me, and I never have any money. $100 for intake[AND heatsheild], $50 for cat, $5 for the tstat. If the cat was shot, and the air filter was clogged, this will give you quite an increase.. perhaps 20 ish??

But what about the HOMEMADE heat shield? Homemade is not a good word for me...

edited for the picky bastards.

you can just use tin foil wrapped around the air filter element, held on with some duct tape.. however an arcylic box like Bill has.. would cost $10-$20 more I believe.
