Hey guys im looking to either buy a M50 intake manifold or a shark injector...Ive heard both give pretty good gains...but is one better than the other? I can get away with an intake manifold for about 50 bucks more than the chip with the conversion kit. Any ideas of which path to follow? THanks alot.

m50 man is probably the best bet, because to get it to work properly you need to upgrade the actual chip. kinda 2 for 1

Question on the manifold = does the m50 manifold change emissions in any way at all? Just curious. Strict in IL.
