Tuners and Cold Air Induction ?

Just got my 05,V6,5speed,fully loaded convertible,bought it used only 1544 miles.the first owner had the dealer put Weld racing rims and 19" pirelli p zero tire and a GT fog kit on the car. Had a 03 conv. auto, beautiful car,(dark shadow gray) but no power. The difference is like night and day of course. My first thing I want to do is a cold air induction. Seen kits with tunners which i think is worth the extra money since the tunner can really be used for every mod.
Why are the SCT tunners better the the Preaditors... I want the tunner w/the USB to hook up to a computer which both have..
Does one do alot more tunner upgrades to the factory program

All repies are greatly appreaticed !!! I will upload more photo of my decal upgrade and other shots soon.

I'm no expert .. but..SCt tuners will come pre programed. You contact the company, tell them what you want it to do, and they create a program (or install one .. if they already have it) then they send you the tunner. I called about a month ago, and I think the guy said with the purchase they would install 3 programs. Anything you add after that, you would have to find the program on line or pay around $100 for a new one.

My Experience with SCT XCAL2 Tuner and C&L CAI

I purchased a combination of the C&L Cold Air Intake and an SCT XCAL2 tuner with 2 custom tunes from Alternative Auto Performance

http://www.alternativeauto.com/prods...tang_tune.html

I have to say I'm please with the results, it was easy to install, you get 87 and 89 Octane tunes for if your going for performance or savings.

The performance is much improved with either tune, gas mileage is also improved. You can't go wrong with these two products. I've also heard good things about Brenspeed, they are slightly cheaper, I have no experience with their tunes.

Do you know if this setup is CARB (California Air Resources Board) legal. You folks living outside of California don't know how good you have it....

Not sure if California compliant

Sorry, I don't know if the C&L CAL and SCT XCal2 tunes would be legal in CA. I'm also not sure what affect a Cold Air Intake will have on my car when I'm driving it in a Minnesota winter, I would think it would be too much cold air?
