I went with the FSWerks Stealth

I have the Automatic Transmission.

I installed the FSWerks Stealth exhaust. Sounds good, not too loud and I can tell it added a few hp.

Something that surprised me though, was how much the exhaust note changed when I added the Cold Air Intake. Definitely made it sound more aggressive and throaty. And when your slowing down (around 2500 rpm) it got a kool angry somewhat random 'Blub bub bub bub bluuub bub bub' sound.

Nothing obnoxious, just sounds kind of mean.

Made driving it more fun ...

I'm waiting for somebody to come out their with a 3" exhaust. I'm speculating at this point, but hopefully it will put me over the 180hp mark.

Is there not a concern with NA cars that you will begin to lose low end torque with this size of tubing?

I don't know I guess I'll find out. I've been to the dyno 2 times and whenever I make an upgrade I'll take it in again. This car isn't a torque monster to begin with. Me personally I like the upper part of the rpm range to produce power.
