What are your expectations and do u have a manual or automatic. I hear a lot of auto guys like it cuz of shift points are smoother. I have a manual and cai And tune mad a good difference on more noticeable tourque in places I wasn't use to that's for sure. And great sound love the way it goes with my atak exhaust.

When you step on the pedal you can hear the sound of the air being sucked into the intake. Power gains are definitely noticeable. It's a great first mod.

I have axle back atak and when I hammer it its plenty loud for me. I'm 24 and I wouldn't want anything to much louder. But I wouldn't trade the way it sounds right now for anything. But on borla shows 37 hp for their full exhaust so it's tough situation for me cu I want more hp

It all depends on what mufflers you have. If you have Roush Axlebacks be prepared to hate your exhaust with Lt headers. It's super super loud and crazy raspy. I would say buy GT take offs with LT or better get GT500's. I have Roush Axlebacks and I had to install Resonators to tame the sound!

The CAI won't change anything u will only hear the sucking sound it will make. Ur tune depending on what grade gas n what tune will only slightly change ur but won't be any louder

Hey Dan!

I just installed my CAI and tune last night and im in love lol. It is like having a completely new car. The sound at 2500-3000 rpm is awesome. The changes in throttle response and shift points is amazing. Im surprised at how smooth the acceleration is. Im running the 93 race tune and its a beast! So far my Magnaflows, CAI and tune all from AM. Next up the LT headers and x pipe!
