Hey guys, my buddy's 21st b-day is coming very soon and some of my buddy's friends and I would like to get together, pool some money, and get him something to put some life into his GT.

It's a 1998 4.6L GT and already has a ram air hood and Catback exhaust.

We'd like to keep it around $300. I'm thinking along the lines of a K&N or possibly BBK cold air intake. Whatever will give the biggest boost in HP for the money I guess.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks
Dude.... I wish i had friends like ya'll.....If you ever need another friend let me know, my b-day is in sept.[sm=hiya.gif]

I disagree, JB. It depends on the catback.

My Catted H + SLP I's > Your flows + O/R H (loudness wise, keep your pants on)
Thats true, it does depend on the catback.

But an o/r h with SLP 1s would be significantly louder than a catted h and SLP 1s. I guess I should have worded it better.

lol you guys are noobifying me with the abbreviations [:@]

SLP, what does it stand for?

And in general, it sounds like an o/r is cheaper and has slightly more power with the only drawback of being louder? I'm there.

well you can do what i do and get the o/r and keep the stock h pipe and then when emissions come trade them out. they arent very hard to change. takes about 15 mins once you get use to it. but with tthe flows catback i would get the bbk. it rips up the street with the flows. that is the setup i had on my 97 and everyone loved it. and the bbk o/r are only 189 free shipping. or you can get the bassani and start fight for like 250 or 300. but remember...you get what you pay for.

Lol, JB, I can do it in 15 mins.

Power gain is miniscule.

lol, SLP is just a company.

Oh SLP... company, right...

You're saying putting in an H pipe gives little gain at all? I've been reading descriptions that say 15-20HP. If they're right, that's enough to notice a difference when you put your foot down.
