Not exactly going to do it all in one hit, but a fair portion of it will be. Even with bills and a little bit of splurging here and there (and I don't drink so I guess that's a bonus) I should have enough to do most of it in 2 months, maybe even less hopefully.

Growler ftw!! the big mouth is just a bigger scroop that sits across the top of ur radiator to capture more air into your standard air box. The growler replaces the airbox with a pod filter with a big open front to suck in lots of cold air from behind the headlight. Plus you can plumb your standard intake into the side of the growler. i guess the ultmiate combo wud be both but the big mouth scoop is like 200 bux and growler is about 450 so quite a lot just for air in take. You get other people on here saying they are a waste of time and to make your own but if you have the funds why not is what i say!

Big Mouth (thanks efun)

So get the growler first, and if I can afford it later, couple it with a big mouth?

Yeah why not mate, i am not really sure what extra benefit there is to the bigger scoop into the growler but i guess it all can help. Probably a good idea to at least upgrade your standard intake to the xr6t one, its about twice as big, i posted a pic in my build thread showing the comparison

How much is the XR6T intake and where can I pick one up from?

you could prolly get it from ebay, or even ford directly. think they are only 30- 40 bux, you could try FTG auto salvage as well, they are forum sponsor
