The exhaust sound was awesome just with the muffler upgrade, and now it is actually a little more aggressive with the cai installed. It some how seems to growl even more. I am very happy with how everything came together.

Install on the afe cai was actually a breeze. I was sort of worried about that due to some previous posts on the subject. The only complication i had was the 105 degree heat index and 90 % humidity that makes a typical houston area summer. I was sweating onto everthing which made some of the rubber couplings a little slick to work with. All in all, things went well and really only took about 45 minutes.

It seems like most people who use afe cold air intakes mention needing to give the adaptive learning of the computer time to adjust to the extra flow. If this is the case then i cant hardly wait to see how much better things will get in the near future.
hey man i kno it says pearland but we should meet up sometime! IM IN HOUSTON You got a fb? There is a fan page on there and lets you kno when and where the meets are!

I bought mine through Jegs as they priced matched against Car-Stuff's website listed price. I don't know anything about Car-Stuff, but I knew that Jegs is reputable.
