    the afe is a pretty good set-up i hear, just not so sure for $330. i also hear that the jba headers arent really worth the money, and the doug thorley headers are good. no experience myself with any of these, just what i hear.

    probably, the best "bang for your buck" would be to go with urd's tcai and maf calibrator. a little on the expensive side, but awesome results i hear. send a pm to pb2themax, as he has this setup, and see what he has to say about it.

    i heard the jba's don't have a very good fit, but i haven't tried them so i don't know for sure. the CAI will give you more power and gas mileage than the headers would when used with a stock intake system, so get the CAI first and go from there. i'd also do a cat-back exhaust before the headers, and i removed the rear 2 converters from my V6 and it gave me a little bump in throttle response and power, or it felt like it did anyway. the shorter the exhaust system the better, if you want to copy off of my side exhast feel free . i wouldn't pull off all 4 converters, reason being you still need some backpressure on a naturally aspirated engine, plus the removal of the first 2 converters will present the need for a CEL eliminator. the 4 o2 sensors are just before and after the first 2 cats, so removal of the 2nd pair for me created no other issues

    you can always try using spark plug non-foulers to fix the CEL lights, they have worked on every car of mine that needed them

    The JBA's require welding. The DT headers are bolt it and remove 2 of your 4 cats.

    I've been very happy so far with my URD intake. I'm about to also install the URD MAF calibration unit which is supposed to further help out.

    i want an intake soon but i don't know which way i'll end up going, i've heard good things about the k&n one too and it's way cheaper

    I'm not a big fan of the oiled filters. I've heard too much about the oil in the filter foiling the MAF sensor. The URD has a dry filter.

    yea i've heard that a few times but i've also talked to a couple people that never had a problem with it, so i dunno what way to go. kind of the same issue with front spacers, i need them now that the TSB was done
