Took the first step!!
 
Woo Hoo! I just got in on the new composite BFI CAI pre-order to start the first mod process on my truck!! Since a lot of you educated members seem to like the BFI, this newbie went on your recommendations. Next will be the exhaust. ( Is there going to be a big difference if I go with Magnaflow, Flowmaster, or Borla? )I just want to do it right the first time and not have to look back and wonder. Oh ya, after the exhaust will be the Predator, again, on the consensus of you guys! Thanks for sharing the knowledge! -- Tim

Great Place to start! What's Next?

Congrats! Picking an exhaust is a tough one. Go to the websites and see if they have some sound clips you can listen to. I'm partial to Magnaflow systems but what sounds good to one person may not sound good to another.

Glad to hear you got your BFI! Just want to get some clarification, I thought they only had the ARIA composite group buy going on right now. The ARIA is for the LX cars, the BFI is for the trucks. I just want to make sure you're getting the right one. Now, on to the exhaust! Those 3 are great kits, you can throw corsa in there too just for flavour. The magnaflow and flowmaster are good mid-grade kits that improve flow and give good sound, but there have been some people that notice bigtime when it kicks into MDS, they get a bad drone that almost sounds like a Civic with a soupcan on the muffler. The Borla and Corsa systems take MDS into account and you get a nice mellow tone throughout... just costs more $$. I run the dual rear borla myself and love it!
