actually the intake can possibly do some damaged if the ecu isnt tuned for it.
an intake can mess with the MAF way past its learning curve. causing a lean condition. and running an enigne lean will run the engine hotter causing premature wear. but thats in the long run.
Even a panel filter can do it. I have an AVO and it would cause me to burn a 1/4 tank of fuel in 20 miles.
btw the stock intake can handle up to 300whp. most people do it for engine bling and the "woosh" sound.
