I have the Magnaflow, and I love it! Don't get the Bomz intake. The Volant is a good intake to get.

Magnaflow is a good cheap exhaust. You can get them on eBay cheap or from where I got mine from www.newedgeperformance.com. As for intakes, the Volant is the favorite on here but it is also pricey. You could go for a MAC or a AEM short ram (which I have) but they are both kinda loud at high RPM's. You can also look in the Buy-Sell-Trade area of the forum for anything cheap that members are trying to get rid of.
Happy motoring!

there's really nothing wrong with the bomz intakes. They just break on the mounting tabs pretty much always. If it's a cai you'll end up with some sort of bungee cord contraption holding up the bottom as the mount will break pretty quick. But it does not effect useability, if thats all you can afford they are just as good as the 300 buck ones imo as far as performance. I'd suggest upgrading the filter eventually to a k&n if you can.

the short ram ones are pretty decent too, again I'd upgrade the filter eventually but the one that comes with will last u quite a while

If you cannot afford a quality part, my advice is to save your money. Buying inferior products only causes you trouble in the end.
