Hey im looking at getting the cobb sf intake with the box which makes it into a cold air from my understanding, i heard that cold air intakes are dangerous for the turbos and blow them. Do i need to get a tune? or should i just stay with doing the ram air intake?

That intake would not be considered a true cold air intake because it still pulls air from inside the engine bay. A real CAI comes out into the fenderwell and pulls air from the outside. I think the cobb sf intake with box is compatable with their ots maps, but you should contact them to be sure (could depend on your year).
