yeah, stay away from those.
If anything it will only restrict your intake.

Even a cold air will be not much more than sound, if you got headers, full exhaust, tune and the cai they would all work together and you'll probably notice a good gain

Yeah no, another waste of money. Unless you like the shiny tubes they come with.


Spend cash a tuner or exhuast so it doesn't sound slow.


Reality is these engines are pretty restricted in the heads, they need internal work to see noticeable results. The sohc's breath better than the OHV's not sur3e on what you have.

They do absolutely nothing for your engine. They are a placebo. Many guys have put these in there cars, and think they feel a gain, but they've been dyno proven to do squat. They barely move more air than a hair dryer.
