Intake and exhaust are totally safe on this car without a tune.
I like polls, maybe when I read the rules I will know, till then, don't care. Information first as long as I am not an a55, I should be OK.
Are they? I suppose they are but I am wary. Some posters made it seem as if there was not enough leeway in the air/fuel mixture to support even the air filter/intake upgrade, mentions of 13.1 were sited although I am not schooled enough yet to quantify the numbers (in my day, head being hit by ball peen hammer was the standard). Others seem to be running a header, 'intake' and cat back exhaust opened to 2.5" from the original 2.x(not sure) and seem to be fine except that some run 93/94 Octane. I'm "sure" that all will be well BUT.
I want an 'intake' which seems to be what you guys call it, a filter and box is what I used to know it as but the K&N unit is not emissions certified in MA (tree hugging scum) and no other unit seems to have it listed that I have yet seen, something to do with Kalifornia standards (PNEV sp or some such crap)
Nevertheless, It's coming whether the 'inspection guards' like it or not, I just haven't decided what unit to install yet (subterfuge may be involved/required) but the oil bypass unit mounting is first and the machinist at work says he will fab a bracket for me for a suitable price. Hopefully, he can look at it Monday, I work 2nd shift hence the late posts.
P.S. I like your posts.
