Leave the OE box be or get a dci type intake, IMO drop ins are a complete waste of money. That being said, until you start pushing over 16psi or so, a dci really doesn't do squat. People are running sub 12 quarter miles with the stock box, an intake shouldn't be a primary concern. Mine was free, or i'd still be using the stock box.
