Exclamation I'm about to drive 900 miles...

Which of these mods should be taken off before such a long road trip:

JB3 1.3 map 5 (can this be left on or changed to map0)
aFe DCI
Swoop Scoops

Thanks.

I'd take the scoops off, and maybe even the DCI, but the DCI should really be fine. I think the scoops are just asking for trouble, especially if a lot of the driving will be at night...
