I want to buy a JLT intake but isnt bad that you have to take off the strut bar or brace, will it hurt anything.

So will i notice any increase, and what is the point of the bar if people just take it off anyways.

it's to stiffen your chassis but I doubt you will feel a noticable difference if you had the stock one on there.

if your stock you will feel a minor increase with the JLT .. more so than other intakes but the gains are minimal as expected.

mine got drilled on the spot, since JLT is local for me lol. it's drilled in the bottom of the first section of the intake tube. then, a rubber grommet is installed for you to install the IAT sensor...

It runs very well. It runs like a car that came from the factory like this. It throws your head back wwwwaaaayyy harder than before the swap.

As far as cost. It could cost you, but if you are lucky/thrifty like me you can get it done cheap. All of my parts were brand new in the box for $800. My uncle-in-law is a Ford master mechanic and he did it for me for $400. I was in college and about to get married when I did it or I would have done a more serious build. But I am extremely happy with my car.
