Im new to the forum but have done this research myself. The DDM intake is currently backordered a few weeks so thats not an option if your ready to order. Ive seen good feedback on the ZZP intake and am told you will need a tune to remove the screen which is the route im currently taking

It's not a "screen", it's a sleeve that slip fits into the pipe to reduce the inner pipe diameter so that the MAF is still metering the same amount of air passing by it.

You can't go wrong with either, as stated the DDM one is on back order. I like the addition to get the heat shield that comes with the DDM set up, thats what swayed me to choose them.

You don't need to get the MAF reading right before removing the sleeve, the sleeve is there to get the MAF reading right so your stock tune will accept the intake as correct. With a tune you can remove the sleeve, increasing air flow to the design limits of the new intake.

Think of it as buying a shoe that's too big for your foot, but which comes with very thick socks that allow your foot to fit. Get a tune, like ingesting human growth hormones to make you a couple inches taller and suddenly your foot fits the shoe without the special thick sock.

Yep, Trifecta, the Roids of the Sonic. But in a good way!
