thanks for the info wolf, I have purchased two COBB intakes used in the last couple of months for $90 each, you just have to be patient.
I didn't include the Brullen's because they are discontinued and I couldn't find enough examples of ppl use them to make a judgement on there effectiveness. But they are out there.
YOu are the second person to mention e-manage, so I'm researching that now.
From what I have seen upgrading plugs and wires doesnt seem to have any real effect on horsepower on our cars. Upgraded ignition systems seem to help but I havent found any real empirical data on the effect they have. If you have a post or article that has solid information I would really like to read it.
