ive read and heard around that its been proven that the skunk2 intake for the K20A requires high compression to actually benefit from it... if ur engine is a stock bottom end with the stock K20A Type R compression then i say forget it as u might end up losing power (based on wat ive heard).... the best intake for the stock K20A bottom end has been said to be the RRC or RBC intake manifolds.

well most friends in the dc5 group are talking about not using the s2 intake if u dun have the compression...

u could actually email skunk2 themselves and ask them...but do take their answer with a pinch of salt...coz end of the day they are still trying to sell a product
