Got Borlas and a tuner with Lund tunes already. Noticed on high speed runs that I got significant vibration in the drivetrain when I let off the gas, decided the drive shaft needed to be upgraded prior to the gears.

I honestly didn't expect too much from the CAI, but I was wrong. Performance is definitely improved and the sound is wonderful at WOT!
Driveshaft goes on tomorrow.

I have a dynotech shaft and love it. I don't know I noticed more power but definitely noticed how smooth the power delivery is and it also smooths out regular driving. I was underneath the car recently saw how awesome it still looks.

I'm an auto as well. Very smooth, like you I feel no vibration decelerating from high speed. There seems to me to be no difference in power, but since I'm running an aggressive Lund tune I probably wouldn't be able to tell anyway!

Don't forget to buy some resonators for that exhaust once you get the x-pipe on.

Just picked the car up. Unbelievable! I'm going to dyno it but the difference in low-end performance is major. I'll wring it out when the rain stops, but the investment was definitely worth it!

And the sound!!!!

So, you got a lot of extra low end torque? I couldn't believe the extra power when i installed my long tubes

Folks ask me all the time on YT if the longtubes are worth it.... YES!!! Lol. Gears are still the single 'best' mod thus far, but the headers were a vast improvement, and rather damn easy to install as well!

So now that you are on a roll, whats next?!
