I picked up a cold air intake from K&N...it took three weeks to get it in but makes a great difference. I am sure most everyone here has one already but i decided to snap off a couple pics of before and after. Dont mind how filthy the bay is, it's hard to keep it clean around here.

very nice. How much did it cost from K&N?
 






Too much IMO, $200.00. But i couldnt find one anywhere and i dont have a credit card so i couldnt get one on-line, so i sucked it up and had a local dealer order one up for me. Sounds awesome when you put your foot into it though now i have to decide on a muffler? hmm...
 






ive got an "ifab" cold air intake. sounds awesome when it takes a big "sip" of air when i get on it too. i must say i am very satisfied w/ with flowmaster 40series exhaust upgrade. i have the stock manifold/cat/40series muffler/turndown

the above system is straightfrom the block. which deletes the "2ndary resonator" and tailpipe.

its a nice rumble but not loud at idle and good thru most RPMs never sounds ricey but is not too loud or "throaty"

check out my newest thread though because i am waiting on a "high flow" cat which i will replace my cat w/ and then i will post my opinion on the sound after that

happy modding!

Thanks for the info, more than likely will go with a flowy...have em on my GT stang and i just love that sound...very curios as to what it will sound like on a V6...as for the cat i am taking it right out ...here in Alberta there is no emissions control so i am just going to junk it.

Have fun with that on an OBD2 engine :rolleyes: You will gain nothing by removing your cat (except sound).

Power and torque wise, there is nothing to be had.
Like I said before, have fun removing a cat on an OBD2 engine.

Ok BUDD...cheers!!!
 






Hey XLGT I just canned my back one and I have not had any probs with my ODB at all.. but I do know if you get rid of both of them the check engine light will be on all the time and it will most likely over fuel.
 


















would i throw a code on my 92 if i deleted all cats and replaced them with a single highflow? it has an o2 bung if i want to put one in. but lemme kno what i should do

No, pre OBD2 engines do not have post cat O2 sensors. The aftermarket cat is just as clean as the originals so it wont throw a code on OBD2 engines anyways.
 






thank ya kindly... hmm no for plugging my highflow!..dangit!
 












Nice choice, I have the same one.
