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.

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?
