I want an increase in HP and fuel efficiency.... please let me know the good and bad of each,,, and if there are better filters/CAI........
also, anyone know where to get an owners manual for my car for a good price?
on a 98, you won't gain anything over a drop in. At most you'll get 7 hp with a CAI, you already get 5-6 with a K&N drop in.

If you like the eye candy, get a CAI, but they won't do anything unless and until you get the intake ported.

you'll pick up a few mpg with either, but you'll lose mpg on cold days with a CAI.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
