I think the SKUNK2 intake is simple and works great. The BLOX intake is EXACTLY the same and much less money. I would go for that. I have seen both side by side and I cannot tell the differnece.

I got my throttle body bored out instead of getting the SKUNK2. It looks very cool.
If your interested I could dig up who did it for me. Was a lot less than the 70mm SKUNK2.

I don't think ITBs are going to cost you a lot more. A guy on Honda Tech did it for under $200: http://honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=1498996. I think it's a cool mod and it's a little different than everyone else is runnning, I'd like to do this with my A6 some day. I have a friend with them on his AE86 and I like it a lot, it screams at redline.

ITBs aren't worth it if you want your car to be streetable or you dont want to spend hrs and hrs and hrs on a dyno tuning it so it is streetable. Everyone I've ever known that had ITBs has sold them and got a regular manifold after getting annoyed with it. The list includes

Adam Jabbay who built the ZC itbs( i'm sure someone saw them a few yrs ago) they sit around and he is boosted now.

Luke from ef-honda didnt even install his on the ITR civic sleeper he just turned around and resold them :p

I wanna say Peter used to have ITBs before I knew him but I can't be sure.

It's really not worth it unless you can build everything yourself, tune it yourself, like loud noises, enjoy tuning for days on end and intend to tune it for days on end and then drive it on a track and still loses to boosted cars :p
