IMO do both at the same time if you can afford it because there is going to be some engine disassembly plus a tune with each. Doing them together will be better on your wallet for install cost.

Its too bad Holley doesn't build a mid intake specific for the 5th Camaro because they would sell a sh!* ton of them. Thought that was the case when I saw the SEMA pic :confused:
