well, i originally had plans of doing an intake and cat back exhaust... i wanted to stay away from the CAI because i have one on my current car and it's a PITA to get to the filter when it's time to clean it. so i was thinking a set up like fujita SRI and a greddy evo 2 sp exhaust. but after reading about heat soak, and loss of torque, i'm thinking i might just swap out the filter in the stock box for a K&N, and do the HFP muffler. the stock intake system was designed for cool air already and must be pretty decent. what do you think?

i say stock air box or maybe poor mans icebox what ever u like. with k&n drop in,then dcrh. thats only a lil over $400 and by far the best gains for the price... stock catback is already good. then spend the saved money on tb spacer and gaskets then reflash :)


EDIT- and u can always run an electric cutout after the header... thats very loud tho

u can get a defouler and use it for the 2nd o2 sensor... it will back it out a lil soo not reading the full dirtyness of the exhaust lol. very cheap. and the cel doesnt hurt your power at all anyways

it is really no big deal to get to the filter in the CAI, park the car, yurn the wheel, pop off 4 clips from the wheel well and 3 from the corner of the under body paneling and your there. Less than 3 mins to do everything if your in a hurry!!!

go with stock air box with k&n drop in.. and like i said maybe poor mans icebox. then the stock exhuats is good as well so id leave it... do with a high flow cat if u dont wanna race header. and u could always run a cutout after it. then read up on other basic bolt ons to do. or save for reflash
