Just Got my 2014 r-spec last week!

I love this car! Picked this up a week ago 100% stock. Just done minor things such as spray painted my wheels, 35% tint, and emblem swap. I just got it cleaned and waxed the other day and took some photos of it. I have a isr street exhaust and test pipes that will be here in 3-4 weeks due to a back order. Is a short ram intake worth it? It's a daily driver so I dont plan on making a lot of power. Just slight power adders for reliability are nice.

Congrats on the new whip! Nordschliefe is definitely one of my favorite Gen colors, but I may be partial.
In regards to your question about short ram intakes, they honestly don't do much for newer cars, they're mostly just a cosmetic change if anything. Most newer cars you actually get better performance out of the stock intake with an aftermarket filter. I believe in the 2.0 though, there's a silencer in the stock intake for the BOV, and changing to an SRI or CAI gets rid of that. I personally got an SRI because it looks cleaner to me, and breaks up all the black under the hood. I am also planning on showing my car though.
Another thing, if you got the dual tip ISR exhaust just be weary that they like to crack where they're welded together. I've seen it in person on a coupe owner I bought some parts from.

Best tip though, abuse the hell out of the search bar at the top. You can get some solid advice on a variety of things, and especially on which stores to trust or avoid.

I’d probably go with a true cold air intake over a short ram intake. I heard 3.8 Performance is working on one at the moment, so you can go over to his site and pre order one. Otherwise, stock airbox should be fine for now. Maybe get a K&N drop in filter. I personally have an Injen SRI on my car and I have no complaints with it, but a true CAI would definitely give you more gains.

Welcome, nice car. Just remember every mod you make makes it a tiny bit less of a daily driver!
