i got a cold air intake and i run straight pipe out the back it sounds ok but its kinda for a rice grinder i need a tip 4 it but its loud and for mine it cackles at 4 grand its kinds not bad but i gues every car wud b difrent so i gues ud b taking a chance ive always went straight piped. know any performance chips that are worth buying???? i c many on ebay but not sure if they are worth wat they say they r

yeah. see the only thing is im a college kid. money doesnt grow on tree's like it use to haha. but yeah if i had the money id def. go straight pipe. as for performance chips u would just want to do ur research. if they maker of the chip has a website check it out to see if there truely legit. u know? but for me other than those customizations do u know of any simple things i could do? ive taken off the air-filter box before and it make a slight difference in sound. but its not safe for the engine[dont want dirt to get up in it]

CAI, thermostat, chip (try hypertech or jet), and full exhaust system. btw...a straight piped exhaust system doesnt always make mroe power. without enough backpressure you can also burn out valves. and straight pipe exhausts are illegal. buy a full system including a high flow cat.

haha ya im going to b a college kid here in a few months...as for exhaust i mean theres not much to do other than straight pipe diffrent mufflers do help out alot and if u got that big gay muffler at the back take that off and just put a tip on it i was only going to do that at first but im one of tha kids that its either loud or go home but when i took that off it made it have a good lil tone to it nothing loud at the least so i went further and took muffler and the cat out and its pretty loud now i need a tip 4 it but i mean its wat uwanna do just cut that big muffler out and c if u like how it sounds
