Some info on brands and parts

I just got a 2009 V6 prem. I would like to get better sound to the engine and some more power. I am thinking about a CAI, headers, and exhaust. I don't know the best brands or really the difference between dual and true dual exhaust. I have seen numbers my V6 max torque and HP in the 4600rpm range but see alot of brands boosting power in the 5000+ rpm range, I could be wrong about this.

I have been told Magnaflow, Flowmaster, K&N, BBK... just to name a few. The only exhaust I have seen which boosts power in what seems to be the V6 max range is a brand called Gibson. I know nothing about Gibson but have heard some sound bites and they sound nice.

I feel bolt on illiterate, and I really am. I really like facts and scientific backing for suggests, but I don't mind any personal anecdotes! Any help would be great!

Thanks guys!

Re: Some info on brands and parts

well the only person on here who might have "TRUE DUALS" is hottcobra mustangs come together in an h-pipe or an x-pipe hottcobra has an old chevelle on those cars the pipes came straight off the exhaust manifold or headers and went straight to the mufflers withought ever coming together. As for CAI get a decent cheap one they all do the same thing "nothing" well maybe a lil. Exhuast I'd just go to youtube and listen to some clips. There are alot on there. If it were my car i'd have bbk or flowtech headers and magnaflow cat backs and an x-pipe. You'll hear plenty of different answers from everyone on the site and that is their opinoin you have to pick what you have heard and liked.

MAc Long tubes, Mac H-pipe and any GT catback, Magnaflow has been dyno proven to make the most power. I run it, I love it. SCT Xcal 3, CAI, any brand will do. Underdrive Pulley, aluminum driveshaft, if you have a stick and aluminum flywheel will help too. Steeda Tri-Ax shifter, full length subframes, some good springs, Eibachs, and shock, Tokico illumina, bilstien, KYB AGX, Koni yello are all good. Wheels and tires of course.

That should keep your accountant busy for a while

Thanks, guys. Seems to me you two are saying the numbers given out by the brand name websites are pretty much crap?

ya don't listen to retailers or wholesalers listen to us or people who have used the product b4. If you could get as much hp as they say you can you would have a 350 hp engine off of bolt ons

Re: Some info on brands and parts

Yah, I've heard good things about the Pypes axle backs and the magnaflows on S-197s.
As Upton said, just a simple CAI, though I believe the 05+ are more expensive than the 99-04's.

Gears/tlok are a must if the bank account allows. They won't increase power, but will give greater acceleration that can be felt throughout the powerband, better launches, and two wheel burnouts
