With regards to the MAC CAI, it's only a little better than a drop in filter .

The headers won't do anything for you, and you may LOSE hp on an otherwise stock system.

THe dual exhaust (if kept within reason) will get you 12-16 hp. the gain from the CAI is offset by the headers, so optimistically, you should net 13-17 hp.

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.

Headers don't affect sound as much as mufflers, or resonators. The farther upstream you go, the less the effect.

You won't lose much torque on a system designed for the 6.

If you ARE going to get N20, headers yould benefit you.

Then maybe i should consider the headers then.. i will Probably spray if i really am going to need the power, if not i guess wht matters if i lose a little bit of power if im not using it at present. So your saying they will benifit even if im only spraying a 50 or 75 shot?
