Also look at upgrading your diverter valve to a Forge 007 or a FMDV001 dump valve. I have had all of these on previous cars so I speak from experience. Good luck
            cai isnt supposed to yield more than 1-3whp..

            i installed an AEM cai and cant see any performance gains. sounds great though.

            bang for buck mods= chip then turbo-back exhaust.

                            Most people would not spend $100-300 for a CAI for only 1-3 whp. My car 1.8t went from 221 whp APR chip to 233 after adding Intake.
