Alright, finally joing the X group with an 08 ' OR 6SPD Tech package Red Brawn. I'm excited. I be making some road trips for second job and one of the first mods I want to do is an intake, because any increase in MPG I can get is what I need right now. I have read the threads and the opinions. At this point I don't give S#@^% about the "whsitling noise" or noise in general. I am looking for the most HP gain with the best MPG. I had a hard time finding that becasue most comparisons have been about sound, wether it's actually true CAI or not. Regardless, If any insight on the best over all performance booster is available, I would really appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

Best bet is to just go with a standard intake like the volant or k&n. Volant might be the best bet since it has an air box and does not allow warm engine bay air to enter the engine. Some have used an Amsoil air filter with them and seem to be very happy with the results.

Forgive me, because I am new to the X scene. When you talk about a new intake, are you referring to the filter and duct/pipe that goes to the TB, or are you referring to an actual intake manifold?

CAI = COLD AIR INTAKE. Its the part of the engine that brings air into it. A new cold air intake will get more air to the engine and usually has a way better air filter. I got the amsoil air filter for my VOLANT. Do a search and you can see the part number for it.
