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)

With an intake alone those gains are probably a little optimistic. Add a ported throttle body as well and you will get that plus a little more even. To me, lowering springs make a huge difference in how these cars look. It would be pretty high on my list.

True I'm thinking about just saving for both and getting them at the same time but do you think 1.5in drop is too much I'm scared my tired are to big ? Thanks for the feedback by the way

No worries, I got my CAI and Springs installed at the same time.

I didn't swap to coilovers until last year

Cool I was thinking about coilovers to begin with but I personally think they are a bit expensive for now so spring will do for meanwhile
