5 horse power is alot

You figure the best cold air intake will get you at most 10hp at a price of $250 so thats $25 per 1 hp VS the copper plugs which gives you $2.5 per 1 hp .. that's 10 times more bang for the buck

Its a no-brainer.

I can show you a dyno of your wallet before and after copper plugs vs cai
A few years ago, I went to the gym for several months and lost 30 pounds. That must be worth about 1% more fuel economy in the city.
