SO! Step 1 is complete! I ordered an aFe stage 2 CAI. It should be at home when I get home on Wednesday. Today was day 17 of 21.

I've been doing a ton of shopping around, tirerack, bullys, roughcountry, etc...
I think the next step is RCX's 4" lift.
I've been reading in the lifted forum but its tough to sort through all the pages. Any pro's and con's on the 4" vs. the 6"? Besides looks...

After the lift will be wheels and tires. After that will be a full exhaust including headers. Then a tuner.

Ill post pics before and after of the CAI install!

Go with the 6" RCX over the 4". The 6" uses actual lift springs in the rear as opposed to the spacers that the 4" uses, And for only $150 more why not?

Just show how awesome us Jordans' are!

SO!
I got my CAI when I get home and installed it (obviously) the next day. It was a little bit of a pain in the ass to instal but finally got things to sit properly. I noticed throttle response instantly but, I really dont know about HP and TQ gains. I also spent an afternoon plastidipping my wheels. I think they look share and they turned out well. The blues dont quite match, but regardless, they still look good. I also bought a diablosport intune i-1000. I absolutely love it! All tunes make a huge difference! The diablo tune made it so peppy and much faster. The fuel saver tune worked wonders! I was getting 12.6 L/100km! Which is 18 plus mpg! And that was doing 116-118km/h. Last Thursday I put over 1000km in one day. I had a long road trip. But 420 for the tuner, Im not sure if it was quite worth it. Im thinking I should have got the hemi specific bully dog.
