You will not notice anything drastic in better mpg, if that's what you are asking. The cost of an intake/exhaust will probably not be realized in mpg gains or anything. You will realize that your car sounds much better and has an increase in power, that is worth the price of admission imo.

YOu will be impressed with the intake and exhaust. The sound, quality, and gain. But wait until you were to put a set of headers on. I love it

Thanks guys for all your answers. I did put the intake and exhaust on and i do notice a bit more power. One thing i notice about my car is the transmission seems to have a lag/slow response on the down shifting, but other than that it does sound nice. But now i'm interested in this header that i can get for the car. I bet from what i've seen in this car it's not easy to install. I'd like to know where i can buy one. I guess i'll look on ebay.

Honestly and anyone can disagree the biggest pain was actually getting the stock manifold and the heat shield etc. out of the vehicle. Putting them on was a breeze. Thats just for 08-11. I could imagine 03-07 isnt to different.

Fwerk's, CFM= central florida motorsports. And yeah you'll find the obx on e-bay. You'll find a tune w/ really help also. For your trans. shifting & better drivabiltiy. Have them turn off the egr & rear o2 senser.

AGREED

As far as tuning goes imo either FSwerks or Tom here on FF. From what i heard as fas as tuning for your trans TOM is the person to talk too.
