What about the Aluminum Driveshaft? how easy/difficult is that one and does anyone know where to find a write up? Can it be done in one day? The mach I am buying this is one mod I'd love to do.

you guys think cold air is better than ram air? I thought ram air was cheaper with almost equal performance. Also a friend was telling me that taking the air intake silencer off might add a couple horse but makes the car sound deeper but the best part is its free. Are there any downsides to doing this?

there isnt reall a downside to it. the RAI is a good thing too, it keeps the scoop functional, i was just listing off stuff from the top of my head.

Ok because this ford guy was talking like removing that part can actually decrease hp when the engine gets hot cause it will suck in hot air instead of cold air but that wasnt making much sense. Will RAI, intake spacer and maybe o/r x pipe void my warranty?

Do you think a Mach that's pushing boost with a CAI already would benefit from an intake spacer? Might another cheap mod I can make if I can afford to up the boost any after I get forged internals..
