do you have inspections?? if so....when you remove the secondary filter, cut the heads off the rivets so you can easily place the filter back in for inspections, then just take it back out. will not mess up warranty....they have to prove that what you did caused a problem, and that highly unlikely with it being just a charcoal emissions filter.
alot of people have cai's, and i did at one point, but i have learned that as the cost of them is such......a drop in filter like the afe is great since you never have to oil it...only clean/dry/reinstall, they cost alot less, and you get mileage gains at normal driving speeds....not upper rpms like with an intake. the exhaust is like i said, whatever you are looking for. if you want awesome sound....go flowmaster....if you want more performance....get a magnaflow
(they have a straight thru design for better flow). if you really want to get an intake....get an afe stage 2 intake with the afe pro dry s filter on it.......pretty good intake with the non oiled filter. on the other hand...alotof people have the trd cai and intake and like them alot.
me personally......i'd do the sec filter removal/afe pro dry s drop in and muffler of your choice....best bang for the buck.
