haha that's a lot of help. Money isn't an issue.

I love that quote, very funny and true, but there is a difference between letting someone pick and getting opinions. In the end you should make the decision because it is your car. AND also, that's why you never brag, shit will come back to bite you in the ass.

if money isn't an issue, than promptly send me $800 to my paypal account and I will send you the BEST cold air intake you can get. pm me for my paypal address.

go with a procharger with a cold air inductions intake... that should be interesting...

The brand and type of blower you pick and the tuner you choose will have much more of an effect on the performance than will the cai. I suggest you finalize your blower selection and tuner first then discuss the cai choice with your tuner. He's the one that has to do the remapping.

There is a big difference between intakes when it comes to S/C applications. The Roto-fab intake makes over 35 HP more than the stock intake. There is always much debate over intakes, but when it comes to S/C cars ours is the choice of many very knowlegable tuners that have done their own testing. Our very large filter, custom molded MAF housing with radius entry, S/C specific inlet elbows and large air box area combine to make great power with the Maggie.
In addition to huge power gains, you can get our system in a variety of colors and choose between black plastic, Carbon fiber finish or polished stainless steel for the inlet elbow.

We have seen up to 3lbs of boost increase over the stock CAI that comes with a magnacharger.

Great to hear it! As mentioned before, you will achieve higher HP #s if you add one of our S/C inlet elbows when you install the S/C.
