I did both a snorkel delete and added an open ended green filter at the same time. Iv had people ask me if I have changed the exhaust. It gave the engine a really nice growl. I have no idea what it sounds like from the outside but it sounds great on the inside. It changed my driving habits a bit because I like hearing it.

If you haven't removed the snorkel yet, have fun with that.

I have the Steeda intake on mine and has given the car a nice growl- WOT can be pretty damn loud but calms down when cruising. Car has a more throaty sound around town and when going through the gears. It's a little pricey but installation is a breeze, everything is well constructed and thought out. I know some members here were having issues with their MAF housing cracking with K&N. Really comes down to your budget, a quick search will find a ton of mods of varying difficulty that members have done.

open ended green filter defintely gives it a nice growl. That's what i'm using w/snorkel delete.
