Depending on which engine you have, you might also want to consider heat-shielding your cold-air intake... a must if you have the 2.5L inline 6, because the filter comes out right behind your radiator. (Hot-air intake!) If you do not shield the cone filter from heat, you may actually LOSE horsepower.
