Seriously unless you like the extra sound an open cone filter makes dont' bother with an aftermarket intake on the SVT. The CAI is the only one that may give a little performance due to the colder air temps but as Jordan said there is hydro lock risk in poopy weather.

I got a short ram and a cat-back exhaust for my SVT and it literally only changed the sound my car made.. there really isn't any performance to be had with those bolt ons. the ORP however will give you some tq's to the wheels

I read alot on the coil and heard the stock one is more than adequate. I needed wires and it wasn't too bad of a deal. Plug gap is larger and with that more efficient burn and quicker startup which was beginning to be a problem. But honestly I believe this can be achieved with the stock coil. With the CAI I found a large difference between it and my stock airbox. My cat is going bad and I needed a ORP so I had been looking at cfm and fswerks.....but got an update on a setup from dominant engineering and went with that. He makes some nice pieces for our cars. But performance wise.....FI is the way to go. More bang for the buck IMHO.

Heard trubendz was a garbage fit....but 3"....wasn't worth it to me. Heard good things about borla and fswerks.

I would like to see that. I don't know if I want to make this car sound any different. IMHO it looks like a granny car and I can't try to make it sporty sounding or looking.

May have to look into some bolt ons if they aren't too much on the senses.
