Which to Buy?

In a month or less I'm going to be getting a HUGE check from my work (screwed up on payroll) so my question is I'm tore between a CAI or the BBK headers. Mind I already have the shorty o/r xpipe. But I can only get one. What should I go for?

All opinions welcomed.

Why buy the X-pipe if you didn't have the headers? Lol. So I guess I'd get the LTH's. You going to be installing yourself or shop? If you go to a shop keep in mind the price for install. If it were me though, I wouldn't do LT's unless I had FI. Won't do much on NA car besides a few horsies up top with probably a loss on the low end. Also, I'm pretty sure you'll need a tune if you don't have one already. And it'll be raspy so be ready! What axle-backs you running?

I Was giving the xpipe. Hence why I have it. And I would do the install myself. Don't really believe in shops unless it's something huge. And true I'm expecting it to be loud. Lol. I'm runnin some magnaflow comps.

Ahhhh ok. Tough choice though. I'd say the LT's because you've got the X but I'd do CAI if it were me.

Do the LT. It's not everyday you can afford to have LT put on your car. The intake you can do whenever because it is so cheap and easy to install.

Headers for that nasty sexy sound. CAI you can get in a few months or so of saving in a jar. That's how I do it lol

Well if it's good I'll get the ceramic. But if not I'll just get the chrome. Lil more flashy under the hood. They might not be as cool as the ceramic but it's not a drag car.

LT's

Be sure you know what you're getting into on the install before you order. I've heard quite a few guys say the install on the ground is a pain in the arse.

I'll do mine when I swap out my K member. It should be easy then.

Ceramic $599, chrome $450, do the chrome and you can afford CAI too

Re: Which to Buy?

ceramic...
Chrome holds a lot of heat....and unless you add a heat extracting hood...you want that engine to run as cool as possible
