UP-Grade Air INtake?!

I have so i have 2.4L. and was thinking of up-grading the air-intake...something like this thoughts? even worth it?

I should say i know NOTHING about engines....

would putting something like that in prohibit the future installment of a snorkel?

Nope, don't do it. Suck it up, regear, or save for an engine swap.

They are a waste of money.

You should do a search and read what they can do to your engine.

Why do you want a snorkel? Planning to go that deep in water, there are many other components that will fill with water you should be concerned with.

basically, to gain back the power you lost when you upgraded to larger than stock tires
