Oh, and forget seafoam. Pour redbull into the TB. It gives your ZJ wings, which naturally allow you attain unheard of speeds... and altitude.

Originally I was going with a modified stock air hat.
I sure got a lot of flack over this idea with people saying that there wouldn't be enough extra air flow to be worth the effort.
Here's how it turned out:

you guys have it all wrong! the best way to get more power through intake modifications is to run your exhaust directly into the throttle body! the unburnt fuel recirculates in the motor for a cleaner burn process and added power! plus since the exhaust gas is already heated up, it burns more efficiently since there is less of a temperature increase from the intake temp to the flame temp. and to top it all off, it works as a small turbo since as it forces the exhaust gases out, it also forces them right back into the motor at a higher pressure! after a few revolutions the pressure will start to increase exponentially!!!
