    the only wiring you should have to deal with is plugging in and unplugging the MAF sensor. have you bought an intake kit yet?

    I don't get what wiring has to do with an intake install? My install was very easy - didn't touch a single wire.

    K&N Air Charger CAI. As soon as I put it in I could feel it in the throttle. At minimum at 15HP gain and it is loud as hell its awesome. Def suggest going with one of those, it's an easy install, just move the MAF and bolt it in with the shield, attach some of the hoses and your good to go. It comes with step by step instuctions with pictures.

    So you could tell just by feel that you had a 15HP increase with the K&N?? I bet you got maybe a 5HP increase.

    gained throttle response is often misperceived as more power than it actually is. if you had a set of headers and an exhaust system, throwing an intake on would probly get you 10-15 actual hp
