Air Raid.

Airaid. It won't ruin your warranty and unleashes the supercharger sound in your car.

Does an air raid and an exhaust make a noticeable power difference??

If anything, I think the CAI is the best/easiest early mod you can do: completely reversable, very cheap, very easy and most people conservatively report around 20 RWHP gains (plus the cool S/C whine).

Exhaust is questionable on gains without a matching tune, as it more significantly affects the air/fuel and cylinder scavenging. That, and it's much, much more expensive.

Go with the Airaid. Diablosport sucks.

We are the only tuner you can buy that will NOT show up on a CVN check at the dealership, and the gains are huge compared to a CAI ;)

Yeah, but he had to choose a place to start and had money for one. :) You get the intake, enjoy for a while, and save up for the Diablo so you can optimize flow. Then you have both! :thumbsup: Thinking about trying a Diablo myself.

My vote is for a Trinity 1st, Airaid 2nd, then Upper pulley 3rd. :)

hey Mike, I live in a fairly remote part of Canada and a trustable tuner is about 8 hours away. I have a airaid and a 2.5" straight pipe muffler delete and im running a bit rich atm. I was wondering IF i bought a diablosport tuner, could I plug it in and tune for my existing mods to help out with a bit of power.
