Yezzir. I wish I had taken a pic of what the speakers used to look like. Im pretty sure they were speakers out of a TV or something old. lol They were huge and square. Only one speaker worked and they were held together with tape. lol I had 2 pioneers laying around I used for the back, and I bought 2 Sonys I believe for the front. (Dang just realized I coulda put that on my mod list. lol)

Get a CAI and full exhaust system and you will be set for sure. I wasnt really looking for power, just mpg. Thats how all the modding started for me. lol

Thanks for the compliments! Yeah I like the billet knobs too, but was debating on if it and the knob looked silly being shiny.

i'll probably be replacing speakers all around this summer. did you have to remove the whole panels to get to the speakers in the doors and rear?

and i might save up and go with an aem cai. then get the borla front to back. i want to get as good mileage as you.. lol

Yeah you got to take off the whole panel, I've been hearing that the Volant cai is better than aem cause the aem might hydrolock on you. Still trying to decide on an intake for myself, I might just go with the FSWERKS sri

i've heard about volant, but not as much as the aem. and isn't it better performance in the summer pulling in cold air compared to sri?

Yes, you're right, but the fswerks has a heat sheild, still not as good as a cai, but you don't hav to worry about water getting into it, I think for the cai, you have to make a valve to stop water from gettin in

Yep you do. Be careful when putting the part with the seatbelt back on. I didnt put it in right so my seatbelts didnt retract right for a year! My gf broke my door when she slammed the seatbelt in the door. lol But i finally figured it out why the seatbelt wasnt going up like a month or 2 ago.

My header was $50, and the exhaust itself was $100. The CAI was $220. If I had to do it all over again, I would do the same with the exhaust, but either make my own CAI for waaaaaaaaaaay cheaper and still have it do the same thing, or buy a CAI used.

I love my FSwerks cai. Whatever you do buy one used.

The FSwerks cai is up and out of the way compared to most CAIs. Ive been through super bad downpours and never had a problem.
