Dont waste money on a CAI or SRI
Just buy a ZZP intake tube, and a K&N filter, and you'll get the same result, just way cheaper..

if you take off the wheel, then the wheel well and tear out the bottom of the airbox ( do the airbox mod ) you'll get some sound...

But why spend 150 dollars more, for some sound, when you could spend that 150 and get a catback or muffler.

People usually get a CAI or SRI because it lets more air in the motor, making it perform a little bit better...
a ZZP intake tube + a cat back will make your car run better.

Yeah.

For the money of a high priced, name brand "CAI"...

You can get a ZZP Intake tube, a K&N drop-in filter for the stock airbox...and a Tsudo/EBay/Speed Daddy 2.5" catback...which are normally less than $150 shipped.

Intake/Exhaust car will make more power than just the super awesome intake car anyways.

^^It works.

Great...and this is what it sounds like...minus the fact I put a Borla Pro XS muffler on the EBay catback...so I don't think I'm even out like $300 on the whole thing.
