  • CAT -or- CAI

    For my next mod, I'm thinking about getting the SLP CAI (A friend bought my FIPK off me for some good $ and I'm gunna try the SLP). Another option is a high flow cat. With which one of these would I see more of a difference in power? Any recomendations? Also... which one would make my car sound better? I love how the exaust sounds now, and If it were to sound even better that would be awesome.

    If you have a 3-inch intermediate pipe or are planning to get a ram air hood someday, get the high-flow cat. If you aren't willing to get a bigger I-pipe yet and won't run ram-air, get the cold air intake.

      YOUR EXHAUST DOESN'T MATTER UNTIL YOU GET THE AIR INTO THE MOTOR FIRST. Sure you might set yourself up later, but it wont do much for you now! [img]graemlins/rofl.gif[/img]

        You don't think that the stock exhaust is restrictive?

                  Are cars mere machines used for transport from one place to another? Are they just a way of satisfying your social hunger? I am sure passionate car owners would feel otherwise. Don’t you love the freedom you experience when you explore the sensations that go through your body. It is not possible to experience the speed the swiftness without being in a car.

                  But when it comes to caring, do you maintain your car in a good manner? Even though the answer might be yes, I am...
