    Well they are two extremely different routes to take. Turbo will give you a huge boost in power for probably 5-6k once all installed. the CAI will cost around $300 but you will probably only notice the power increase at full throttle, although it will probably be louder making you think the car is more powerful

    I know that the turbo will def make a huge difference. But I feel like the turbo would be a little better and like you said obviously faster. Since I don't have a v which I wish I did have I feel like it would be a better choice to go with the turbo anyway. But it just sucks bc it is a lot more money I just hope it'll last.

    Actually, the Trifecta tune, bored out TB and Iceolator are the best bang for the buck for the 3.6.
