Cold air intake or Lowering Springs for a v6 ??

Ok so I really dont know which one I want more an injen cold air intake that can add about 18hp and 17.9lb tq or should I get lowering springs ?? I really want to get some power out of my car but I also really want some lowering springs I just love the way it looks, I was thinking about 1.5in drop in fornt and 1.4in rear ? Will it fit my car right or are my tires too big(pics below)? Thanks for the feedback let me know what you think I should get and any other suggestions like any good brand for springs or better cai ? (sorry about the bad pics)($400 limit)

if i were you i would wait to drop the car until you can get some wider wheels on there. on my last car (2007 mustang) i lowered it 1.5 inches before getting wider wheels and although it looked good, it just didn't look right because the tires were so far into the wheel well... just my 2 cents....

Springs. Take advantage of that Florida weather! Where I live it will snow in a month, I'd love to be able to consider putting lowering springs on in September and not worry about my front lip getting destroyed.

Thanks man, I am flattered. Honestly, I advise you to do the same, the kit keeps the ride drivable with an acceptable clearance
