Any on American muscle are good , personally I have the JLT Cai which I'm very happy with it make a really cool sound adding that swoosh and its louder when you floor it. As for hp you won't really benefit much without a tune so I recommend American muscles combo Cai and tune pack .

From what I've seen on dyno results, Steedas shows the most HP gain. Around 10 more then any other, all with tunes.

Also, are those grabber stripes I see on your car?!?!

Do you have a tune on your car? If so what does it top at?

I do from Steeda. But I'll probably be getting it dyno tuned next spring after a few more mods. And top speed? I kept the limiter to 120. No reason to drive faster then that on the streets. It gets their easily though and it's got more in her if it was removed. But if you haven't heard already, our stock driveshaft is pretty weak. I'd upgrade that before removing the limiter.

yeah the driveshaft might not be good for like 160 but i know people that run 140ish all the time with the stock driveshafts. I've only heard of a couple breaking and out of the thousand that people tune thats not a bad percent. id like to set my limiter to around 135 or 140. because it gets to the top way to easy. just barley over a quarter mile and its topped out

If you're going to go with a tune, get the steeda CAI, or the AFE if they still have it.
the ones that require a tune will usually provide the most gains.
