      i know, the area under the curve will definitely look better with the SRI, but how much better is the question.... i haven't given up yet, still waiting to see the final design/tune.

      That last one may be the AC, and a lot of us have it. I have had it for 40k miles, and everything is still working fine. Try turning on the AC and see if it goes away.

      header and SRI both work whether it's MAP or MAF. It's the software tuning that was slightly challenging. However, port flashing is now available on 09+ cars, so that's a moot point too.
