From what I've read ... expect 7 RWHP with the CAI + 10 RWHP with the muffler. A tune would probably add about another 10 rwhp or so ..

get the AFE intake! it doen't require a tune and claims increases of 12hp. I don't think ne one has seen a dyno but many say they feel strong gains.

AFE is usually 10-12hp....Theres also one of the K&N intakes that dont require a tune but its about $30 more and only nets about 7.5hp
