So it isn't bad for the engine? I've read and been told straights can burn something up potentially. But I LOVE the sound so I don't want axle backs.

Have you tried running 93 octane in your car, this will do about as much as a tune and it's a lot cheaper. The CAI and exhaust will make noise, but that's about all.
