Ive decided on the CAI now just 1 more thing

hey guys ive decided on getting the CRAB intake but i was wondering what is this FPU thing is do i buy this as like a 4th package or is it a add-on to the 3rd package? Also what does it do and i dont have a Ram Air hood but im planning on getting one in the future... since this is a "Cool Ram Air Box" should i not get it since i do not have a ram air hood?
PS what is this tiger crab low ram air intake? lol should i do this would it make the filter more efficient?
thanks in advance for your guys help im kind of a noob at this kind of stuff =/

I can answer the first two, the FPU is an add on to option 3, it is to replace your stock pipe. Yes, you can get it without the Ram air hood, I run it with my stock hood, and you can also add the hood later if you want to. As for the tiger crab... I'm not sure. I'm sure one of the guys knows.

upgrade to the post

ok as i said on my last post im planning on getting that dragon filter as my air filter and option 3 seems like its just the couplers and the filter so option 3 kinda seems pointless to buy... so can i just buy the FPU and not get option 3 since im getting a dif filter and the FPU come with couplers and then buy any other xtra parts needed for the installation at auto zone? it would be cheaper than paying $175+ on a air filter that i wont use and xtra couplers since the FPU comes with couplers haha

Option three also come with the heat shield, which is a must. You can get the fpu without getting option three.. If you don't want the filter, get Option 1 or 2. then you will get the shield and the couplers. No extra parts needed. As for the FPU coming with all the couplers. From what I understand, it only comes with the coupler that connects the FPU to the MAF sensor, and to the engine (not directly, but you get what I'm saying). You'll still need the couplers to connect the MAF to the filter.

I think for you, it would be wise to get option 2 (the one with out the filter because you're getting a different one) and the FPU. Also, it is very straight forward on how to install, all you really need are some wrenches, screwdriver, and elbow grease and you'll have it installed in no time. (Remember, this is all my opinion, take it as that, it is your car, and ultimately, your choice)

i believe the spare PCM would you be buying a new one straight out and not waiting for your current one to be sent in, programmed, and sent back.

It will either be a new one, or a gently used one. When I read the "terms of use" before buying mine. It said he is switching over to gently used ones, with under 10,000 miles on them. (I don't know what that is, but it doesn't make a huge difference whether it is gently used, or my more used PCM)
