notice any gains/sound if...

just got my gintani sport install today and it sounds amazing! cant wait till its fully broken in.
My question is what can i expect (performance and sound wise) if I bought an AA green filter and a RPi Ram Air Induction Kit air scoops
Also where can i pick up the aa green filter???

Congrats man. I had almost that exact same setup except I had the afe stage 2 intake (which apparently gives the same gains as a drop in filter which is minimal) and to be honest I thought I felt I slight increase in throttle response but didn't really notice any "wow" factor. But I did race my buddy when I was stock and after the mods and actually we both were surprised the difference they made in an actual race. I know there is a pretty big weight savings with the gintani compared to the stock muffler and I know the savings there helps

Axle back exhaust - +5hp
Green filter - +4hp
Air scoops - +47whp
That should sum it up

More like air scoops will help you scoop 47 more bugs per mile

would you guys recommend this macht schenll kit? ($160)
or is it better to get the aa green filters ($100) plus rpi scoops which is another $100.
also, im reading that RPI might not be the best quality scoops... anyone care to chime in??

I have the AFE scoops and the fit and finish on them is pretty solid

Installed the AA green the other day, couldn't hardly hear a difference. Felt nothing. IMO the filter sound thing is overhyped by many here. I wasn't expecting to feel any performance difference and don't care about that but was hoping for a little sound, it was the only reason I purchased a filter in the first place.

Do some searching...seriously. Scoops will not add power. Get whichever are prettiest.
