Any CAI (cold air intake) will do. Just go on ebay and buy the cheapest one you can find that fits your car. I had a DenseCharger and switched to a MAC and I saw ZERO difference on the dyno.

I think it's more the location of the filter than the actual style. So any CAI will do

you probably won't feel a differance maybe 2-4hp , car will be a little more responsive, and may sound a little different

chipping the car is not worth it unless u have lots of mods. and if you get the prokit it will lower your car about 1.5, so it should help handling

do a quick search. It is fairly extensive and it is easier to transplant a 4.2L engine in your car. It will run you over a grand easily.

If you want something that you can feel the power, you should go with an Underdrive pulley. Then you can do some gears and you'll really feel the power. And finally for a in-expensive $2 or so you can remove the slack in your throttle cable with a 1" nylon spacer and some hose clamps.

I used the top of a bic pen and it has worked for about 3 months now, and its a pretty good mod, it will help throttle responce but..... only so much
