I don't know anything about the Borla headers... I went with the ARH Long tube headers for the power. I am waiting for Vararam CAI to come out, hopefully by the end of the month.

well the good news is you have plenty of options!! I'd go with the Borla headers just to keep everything the same and their in a good price range compared to the kooks. You can find them here:

As far as intakes, we offer the AirRaid and Granatelli, the latter is brand spakin new so if your interested let me know and i can get some pricing for you!

Either way you'll be driving with one big smile!! lol.

do you mean in reference to the intake? If so it would definitly be benificial to combo up the CAI with a tuner, you'll see better gains that way and you may also need a tune to go with the headers.

We stock the ARH headers with or without cats. We're working on the TSP header systems, but we're still a solid 6 weeks out on them. For intakes, I'd probably sit tight for our new TSP intake, the AirAid or maybe the Vararam. I'll be testing all the different options & I'll let you know how they stack up.

My vote is for AR headers but I may be a little bias, either give us or Texas speed a call.

I have the LMR CAI and love it. I'm waiting on headers, can't make up my mind if I want the DT Shorties or ARH LTs...

Plus, I don't want to fork out a ton of money...but understand I have to pay to play.

And I don't want to void my warranty.

I have LMR CAI, KooKs Headers, and Corsa Exhaust currently.....

I love the set-up I have and wouldn't change anything.....

I will be installing a MagnaCharger TVS-2300 in two weeks.....

If you get the LMR CAI get there Carbon Fiber it looks really nice.....

You can't go wrong with American Racing or Kooks Headers.......

You might want to take a look at ADM's new CAI.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36712

He also uses ARH with Magnaflow stuff. You might give him a call or email just to get some more options. www.admperformance.com

Going with ADM CAI for sure, that thing is nicely built and AR headers. Not sure what exhaust yet...maybe Corsa.

I can confidently recommend the AR headers. My only caution is to be prepared for the noise when you get on the gas. It sound great and not too loud with the windows up, but with the windows down you get the hear the noise everyone else is hearing...and it's not quiet!

No comment on the CAI...

Hit the "Easy" button and do the following:

1) Doug Thorley Shorty ($556) or Long Tube ($669 I think) ceramic coated headers (Vendor thread)
2) Doug Thorley Cat-back (X-pipe) system (sound clips in Exhaust thread - $504)
3) Vararam CAI. (Vendor thread - $ still undertermined)

Get it all at introductory prices (for the time being) for somewhere around $1,500 assuming the Vararam CAI comes in under $500. To get these prices, you'll have to act soon because some of these options will probably go up once they start shipping. Try to get all that with the big name branded stuff and you'll pay $1,000+ more easy. Go check this stuff out. Doesn't cost a thing to window shop, right?

Good luck.

Have you ever driven a modded car? The noise you are talking about is header noise and will come with ANY header on the market today. You are hearing the exhaust running through the headers. American Racing headers are pricey but you get what you pay for. Real stainless steel MADE IN THE USA, not some cheap chinese brand that the collectors and flanges on will crack within a few months. I have seen several negative post about modifications done to your vehicle. Seems like you would be more happy with a stock vehicle. Modding cars is not for everyone.

I did a lot of research and ended up with kooks long tubes and intermediate pipes. I also went with new eras over radiator design for the cold air intake. At speed where it counts this style will give you more power. Don't listen to all the dyno crap on here with the under hood units. There is a huge difference between sitting on a dyno With a cool engine and the hood open and running 60+ mph with a hot engine and the hood closed. Just remember you want the shortest route to the cool dense outside air.

You make good valid points.

But the New era product is on top of the radiator isn't it.I would like to see the datalog of this unit sitting in stop and go traffic versus actual speed on the highway..Ill bet at speed it is very close to ambient temp considering the air inlet source...Just around town I see some heat issues.Maybe I can get that data from them.

LOL...yeah...I know what headers are...thanks.

I love driving a modded car...especially one with quality parts that don't cause unnecessary damage. I was really close to having exactly what I wanted...all except for one lousy, poorly constructed part that was obviously rushed to market. You obviously read a complaint into my comment about headers that wasn't there. Did you read the part where I said " I can confidently recommend..."??? I have ARH headers and continue to be really impressed with results.

So, I'm guessing these types of posts are what I can expect since I posted an objective review about one of your products? Nice.

here is the thing though. You do not need the extra horsepower when you are sitting in traffic. You are not even going to need it as soon as you hit the gas as you are going to get enough wheelspin already. You need the extra power when you finally hook up and can put it to the ground which is at least 30+ mph. So when you need this extra power where do you want your cold air intake pulling its air from. The cool dense air rushing throught the front grill or the hot semi stagnate air under the hood. Or you could get one of those with a box around them which should provide a little cooler air but is still very stagnate. in the end you are ok witht the boxed off type as a lot of factory intakes are that way (gt500 etc). But if you have the choice the over the radiator has almost a straight shot from flowing outside air to the intake. So I would either get a CHEEP elbowed under the hood intake (if i want to save money) or a good over the rad intake ( if i want the best).
