stock airbox
i'd buy motor and tranny mounts with the intake money. different category, but better return for your investment.

Great advice. It is always better to ask your tuner first as he will know what you are looking for and how to help you get there.For the money though I would stick with the oem airbox/oem filter. I would purchase a BCS and either or both...a Pnp exhaust manifolds and TGV deletes as they are both excellent bang for the buck mods

Excellent advice. I purchased a aps cai right before I got protuned (even though my tuner said the gains would be minimal compared to costs) and he was right! I am about to get re-tuned and this time I will be getting pnp manis and tgv deletes before....which is what I should have done to begin with. Confirm with your tuner though, he will be the one actually working on your car obviously.
