    tint, k+n drop in, 2nd filter MIA... Pioneer deh-p400ub head unit...Alpine spr-69c fronts and Alpine 17c rears. Either Alpine or Pioneer amp coming and major sound deadening.
    hmmm...afe said as follows:
    they make the trd intakes
    cai gets 13hp/21 tq rear wheel and NO loss at bottom end

    didnt want me to get drop in...or should say "guided" me away from one....

    my take:
    ahh sales are slow huh bud....
    cai is top end gains....ever drive on s calif freeways?? TOP END? LOL yeah at midnight.

    $62 and change for drop in......or $ 371.31 for cai...hmmmm...drop in time....ride, monitor mpg and throttle response....maybe follow "broken necks" advice after about 2nd filter...
    anyway...lots of conflicting info out there...just like with my cummins, my harley etc etc

    oh well....its Al Gores fault for inventing the internet:rant:

    figured that the drop in would work...but...
    after a close look at that intake tube i kept thinking...elephants trunk...LOL:rolleyes:
    wtf is that?? airflow thru that then stock filter, then the "bonus" filter?
    its easy to see how afe can claim 23 tq 13 hp rear wheel...hell a 5/8ths garden hose would get gains...

    so.... ya all sure a drop in and removing 2nd filter works?? or is it just less expensive?
    Read on here that the URD is very good unless you are in water etc....is rain at high speeds a factor? Do you have to do exhaust with a CAI?
    before I pull trigger on something I better explore options more...
    hey sorry for the back n forth... just new to the v6 world
    thanks in advance

    K&N drop in filter, Banks monster exhaust
    if your not looking at getting a whole new intake what i did is i removed my secondary air filter and I already had a banks monster exhaust on my truck. But when and if you do the secondary air filter removal take that whole intake tube off and the end that goes into the fender that scoop that points toward the rear of the truck. I took a dremel tool and cut that scoop off straight and i could tell a noticable difference in hp and mileage. Thats just if your trying to avoid a whole intake for now.

    That scoop mod gives more air flow?

    Drop in AFE-dryS on mine, had a dynomax super turbo, welded the stock muffler back in after the first long trip. Too old for the hum. Can't honestly say I got any different mileage going back to stock, nor any difference in performance, other than my up-graded speakers do seem to perform better with the stock muffler. ;) Mine will never be on a dyno so I'll never know.

    Yea the walkers a bitch. Stereo changes were only speakers which are Pioneer TS-A6972R (6X9) in the front and TS-A1672R (6.5) in the back, and left stock tweeters in the loop. Left the stock head unit with the six disk and steering wheel controls intact. It works for me. 20 years ago I'd have had a component system. Used the Taco Tunes spacer mounts and kit. To costly in my opinion. Just get you some 1" composite board and use your stock speakers as a pattern for drilling the holes to mount the spacers to the doors and screws to mount the new speakers to those. Bolts and such from Lowes for a lot less $. Speaker harnesses from Best Buy for $6 a pop, if you don't want to cut and splice, as I recall. Great write up on speaker install by Maverick 491.

    No amp just the speakers. Never get it over 30 on the volume. Lots better on the bass and highs, and plenty loud for me. The stock speakers have a magnet about the size of a quarter and plastic housing with paper cones. I'm still a head banger of sorts. ;)
