My only regret is reading regret threads. Turns out there's nothing to regret about.

OP enjoy your intakes. Make sure they install the pc that protect the AC lines and check to your satisfaction before they put the bumper back on. You'll hear her suck up all the air when you floor it.

I have this specific question to. I'm going to do those 3 mods, no more and no less and I'm curious. I'm assuming most people would say to go ahead and get it tuned.

It's not an inexpensive choice though.

Tune isn't necessary, but will get you the most gains from those mods.

for those who claim to "only do 3 mods".....I strongly suggest you run away from this page . Mods are an addiction , with the increased power you will want more control and better stoping. You may also find yourself wanting to hit the accelerator pedal a wee bit harder and take that fun turn a little bit more aggressively. Once that kicks in there's no turning back. You will find yourself buried in wheels & tires and then suspension section on this site. By then it's too late, like the mafia you try to get out but something draws you back in.

I know stillen gen 3's are the way to go, but I gotta say, my AEM's are very comparable. Install was simple. Cutting was not required. They sound great. The pipes are bigger in diameter themselves. The only real compromise is the maf reader box thing, which I have not had a problem with at all. With a new tune and jumping this box, im willing to say id have better gains with this AEM intake over a stillen.

ive also heard that running jet fuel in your car makes it faster, but we all know thats not 100% true

drop in filters do not add power, if you gain any power, its from you going from a dirty filter to a clean one, all drop in filters are good for are not having to replace your air filter as often and you can clean it instead of replacing it

Sure looks like it adds power.
