some sort of fenderwell CAI, like a bbk or densecharger/demolet. stay away from any cai with metal piping, it retains heat which negates the purpose of a cai.

dont expect any massive sotp gain, but it will make a bit of a tone change in the exhaust note.

JLT...pricey, but looks damn good and you can get it painted to match the car or custom painted.

I dont like it because they put the little bbk tag on it with rivets (sp) and ive seen the rivets fall off over time and you get un metered air into the intake.They may have changed this but the one i had was like that.

Re: Cold air kit which one?

JLT is the best on the market with K&N closely behind IMHO. Just a FYI... a strut tower brace (just incase you were planning on going with one in the future...) will not work with a JLT CAI however it will work with a JLT ram air intake (not the fenderwell model) which is still an amazing intake especially at the track, you can remove your passengerside headlight to get true ram air effects.

Re: Cold air kit which one?

get a bbk. they look dam nice with the polished look in the engine bay. and dont worry about the metal piping cause the air to warm up at all. think about how fast that air is moving in the tubing. do you really think its in their long enough to make a temp change? i dont think so. had one on my v6 and will be putting one on my new GT.
