K&N is a brand of CAI (cold air intake). Cooler air into your engine means more expansion upon igniting. Hotter air doesn't have as much expansion when ignited as cold air hence more power. This is because everything as it heats it expands. So, the engine compartment air has already been expanded further than cold air by the temperature of the engine. High flow air systems like CAIs allow the air to flow in fast enough it doesn't have time for the engine compartment to heat it up. HTH.

not to be a dick...but you asked...instead of just bombarding questions about everything, take a second or maybe a few minutes and search. you've got questions about stuff...so search those questions before you hit "post". i promise you, you will amaze yourself at what you can find. its time consuming but you will learn more that way. if you want to go FI...then start your research around FI. it appears that you want the most HP you can get. but just a reminder, your a V6 asking in a V8 section. so the setups, builds, and tunes are slightly different. instead of just asking an open question like "are turbos worth the money?" find out what a turbo is first...only you can decide if its worth YOUR money. you've got a bit more research to do just for your own knowledge base before you go throwing parts at your car. if you just throw mod after mod at it, next you'll be on here flaming us for your motor grenading. nothing wrong with being eager to learn, take your time, and invest some interest in it instead of looking for somebody to hand you the answers and build your car for you. your gonna have 50 different answers to 1 question and 1,000,001 ways to build your car up. there is an exhaust sticky in the V6 section which should give you a good idea of the sound your looking for...start there.

This forum is for finding out information and using each others knowledge as a resource so you don't have to search four million websites to answer a question someone already knows and can answer in two seconds. Anyways ask all the questions you want. Sometimes you can get a better explanation from someone with experience as opposed to reading direct information.
