suggestions for my first performance mod

hey guys i am thinking about putting a cai but i have heard all they are good for is noise, but what i really want is performance, the sound would just be an added bonus. So what should i do? should i maybe go with a throttle body spacer instead?

from what i have heard is a throttle body spacer wont do crap, just go with a good drop in filter, and get a new muffler for the better sound

I bought a TRD Intake and had it on for a tank of gas. Took it off that week and sold it. Sounded like garbage,didn't gain any power and with my same driving habits it lost me MPG..

AFE Pro Dry S drop in is now installed and I am concentrating on other mods.

Was your loss in MPG's due to you stomping on the gas? Hard not to do on that first tank after the install.

I have definitely noticed better throttle response with mine. I wouldn't say it has give much of an improvement (but some) in MPG's but IMO it does have a nice sound to it.
