CAI or Porter Cable 7424 or..

Well I'm off to college soon so modifying the GAs gonna slow down quite a bit. I have about $200 to work with for the last semi-major mod for a while.

I have these three things in mind..an MP Racing CAI, a Porter Cable 7424 or a Magnaflow muffler.

I wanna get some insight on which would benefit me most in the long run and what I would probably enjoy most.

Very true. It would also be used on other vehicles (like mommy's) and future cars.
+1 for the PC, hah.

I am actually going to get a PC kit this summer to make some extra bar cash on the sides... I won't really need it for the Monte since its paint is still drippin' wet, giggity


I am in school now too, and have kinda lost interest in modding the car too much since I only drive it 4 months a year...might just get a WAI and call it a day. At least I could potentially bring the PC to school and do some work around Ann Arbor on the weekends for drinking money

long story short, get the PC!

Are you kidding? Buy tools over mods every time.


I'm at the point where I have two 3.5 ton hydraulic jacks, at least 8 jackstands, multiple ramps, multiple creepers, several sets of hand tools, 2 torque wrenches, spring compresser, air compresser..... the list goes on. I could have done tons to my GA, but it's ALWAYS better to buy tools.

I hate to AGREE with everyone on this but I say go for the PC as well... by far the best investment you can make for your current and future cars not to mention you can make a quick buck on the side if you are good enough...

fyi- I got a real nice deal on my PC from "RAM TOOLS" on ebay..

Yeah wow they do have a nice price on that. Definitely can't beat ~$100 shipped. Thanks.


I was expecting you to slip me a "MP Racing CAIs on Sale" link.
