Helppp?

I have saved up about 600 dollars and looking for an easy bolt on performance upgrade. I was looking at the rotofab cai or should I go with borla pipes? Obviously I would have to take my car some where to get the pipes installed and I don't really like paying people to do stuff for me. Is there any other upgrades that are in my price range the have a high increase in proformance?
Much thanks!

you can also get a CAI cold air intake, and probably the scoop and w/w relocator for $600 depending on where your shop

Pipes wouldn't give you much of a performance upgrade, just better sound. The CAI if you want a little extra hp.

If history repeats itself, you should get more gains from Vararam than CAI or any other intake. That's what a lot of people are waiting for, myself included. CAI is a little too pricey for me, with the leftover cash you can also get yourself a ported throttle body.

Last I heard Vararam was in the final testing phases of two prototypes. I don't believe they are taking pre-orders just yet.
