Simply get the RPi scoops and a nice aftermarket filter that requires NO OIL like aFe.

RPI scoops are a waste of $$...lol if you want scoops, get the CYBA ones on here for $45 shipped. Less than half the price of the RPI ones, yet the results are the same.

Lol how often are you going to be going over 100? Apparently at freeway speeds you notice better throttle response and a bit of umph. I don't know anyone who could notice am extra 5hp..I bought the scoops because they are so choice.

aFe stage 2 intake. The sound is amazing. I got PPK and M performance exhaust and the intake sound is the best of the lot. Claims it adds 20+ hp which is BS IMO. But the sound is amazing.

The gains you get, like 5 HP when at high speed are not worth $200 plus.

I bought the scoops as a cosmetic mod only, the RPI scoops are nicely put together. Seems like intakes are about as useful as the scoops in getting more power so buy it if your searching for greater sound, no noticeable power gains should be expected.
BMS is most likely the intake I'll end up buying

I paid $250 on a sale on mods. Video below is for sound. I have to agree that I don't think there's any power gains at all from intake. The sound is amazing though IMO. The turbo whistle rocks.

Sounds almost identical to the BMS Intake, I love the turbo spool and BOV sound from inside the cabin with the windows down.

Bonus: Driving between large buildings!

I have BMS

the blow off sound is cool, but there is almost no spooling sound which kinda sucks.

I miss the sound of the DCI on my n54

also, +1 to dark knight.. that aFe sounds identical to the BMS. I don't know if the injen sounds different, but fwiw I would spend the extra $$ on it if there is more noise... the lack of spooling noise with the BMS was really a bummer

(BMS also advertises +10 hp - not 5 hp if you care)

also

if you're interested in getting scoops, I'd go with the RPi over cyba. I got cybas purely for cosmetic appeal, but they are too small and you can barely see them. I think the RPi scoops are bigger
