Carbon Air Intake.

I am planning to get air intake modifications. I already have RPi AirScoop and aFe Air Filter. If I go for Technocraft or GruppeM air intake, Will it actually decrease my power because too many air coming into the engine?

And yes, which one is better? Technocraft or GruppeM? If I am going to do the modification, should I go for both air intake and charge pipe? or either one is enough already?

I went full tecnocraft system with bmc air filter...i think an upgrade in air filter is your best bet for any sinificant performance gains.

There's a thread somewhere here declaring that the stock charge pipe was superior to any aftermarket charge pipe.
