    Supercharger. The K&N will rob some power because it is junk. If you want long tube headers you will lose lower end power but gain top end power.

    I think you wasted your money on the K&N, the stock intake draws cold air from the fender. It's doubtful you'll get any real gains from the K&N, just more noise. Full exhaust may help a bit but for real power gains you'd have to look at superchargers or engine programmers (not chips, something like the APR-X1 if you can find one).

    Actually it is about $5000 installed and you did just spend $200 for less power.

    You can change the gearing out but you will lose MPGs.

    Well full exhaust with a tuner might get you close to your goal.

    Where and what kind of power are you looking for? High rpm, low rpm? Normally any change you make might get you one or the other, but not both. In some cases it's gain one, lose the other....

    o you have an 09, so APR is out, they don't support 09+ yet
    o MAF Cali is a good thought, but it will only gain you power when in open loop
    o short tube headers will gain you some down low
    o long tubes will gain you some up high
    o a decent CAI (AFE, URD, TRD) may gain you a few HP up top
    o a dual exhaust may gain you a few HP up top (very dependant on pipe size though and if it's a true dual, or just a dual exit)

    Might want to consult a bit with URD for NA mods for your situation.

    Sorry for steering you the wrong direction, I wasn't even paying attention to what year you have. No APR X-1 for you :cool:
