You could also try Craigslist, not to long ago there were plenty for good prices in my area. Not sure about pennsylvania. If your on a budget Id go that route, you can probably find them for half the price! Just my 2 cents

You make sure you have an unmarried programmer when you buy it. You will have to pay for the tunes from Bama, brenspeed, or who ever you prefer for a custom tune. They send you emailed tunes based on the info you give them about the parts you have on your car then you upload on your programmer. I use Bama through American muscle but because I bought my programmer through them I get free tunes for life so it is pretty good to buy from them if you plan on changing a lot of parts on your car. But like I said if your on a budget you could buy one from craigslist and just buy a tune. Hope this makes sense to you.

Yeah brenspeed does the same thing once you either buy a programmer from them or buy a tune from them any parts you buy from them that requires a tune, they will update it for free and email it to you with your upgrades. I just prefer brenspeed over bama tunes but thats just me.

Well I've heard people enjoy their JLT intake and as for if you will notice a difference, you should get better throttle response and if you have an auto they can change the shift points and make for a better performance but you should feel a difference for the better in some way but if you add more like cams and heads it will be even better!

Yes you will definitely tell a difference from stock! More throttle response as some one just said up above! My mpg's also went up, but I drive 80 miles a day round trip so thats why i can tell. You will definitely love it, it also makes it more fun to drive when you wanna put your foot down.

It's because you bought a pos "chip" I'm not bashing you BTW... the chip is not intended for modded cars...

Alot of times as simple search will get you an answer faster than making a new thread about a subject that has been beat to death. All the answers above are pretty spot on though.

That's exactly what I was trying to say. Not trying to be a jerk,just trying to help you get the fastest answer and searching sometimes works better than making a thread.

You ask for our opinion and thats what were giving. I have it on my car and works great. Bigger intake tube and bigger filter which helps sucks in more air compared to others brands. There is also C&L if I'm not mistaken which also almost the same. You just gotta research, we all did. In 5.0 mag which someone's posted above, there is a couple of pages of a bunch of intakes and tuners and hp rating given JLT and C&L were on top but ultimately it's you decision! just take our word, obviously you know some will respond and let you know if a certain one is crap!

The CAI is mostly whichever one you really want to get. The ones that require the tune all pretty much flow the same amount of air. The performance increase is mostly from the tune. I bought Steeda just because I know the company makes good parts and the system is pretty solid and got a tune from Bama for it.

Complete answers like this would save people lots of headaches rather than "JLT, son".
