There are CAGs eliminator devices available that are trouble free. You can also eliminate the 1-4 shift with an aftermarket tune.

Since an OEM air filter already flows more air than a stock throttle body can use non-OEM air filters will not add horsepower unless you have changed or modified the stock throttlebody. Generally speaking, OEM air filters are better protection for the motor against contaminates than non-OEM air filters. (The only exception I know of is not available for the CTS-V.)
