Hey guys im new to the world of having a car but im a quick learner and i have a good friend who can help with most projects i would want to do

i have a 2000 Tl good amount of miles on it and i was considering putting on an air intake and i have a few questions about it

-Should i get an official kit for my car or just parts needed for the intake and put it together myself
-Ram air vs Cold air
-will the cost and effort be worth what i get back (power,MPG,ect.)

Thanks for the help

One, there is no such thing as an "official" kit. Every aftermarket intake is just that, aftermarket.

I guess it depends on where you live, but from personal experience the HP gains on a V6 with either CAI or Short Ram are rather negligible. The difference between the two are almost nil.

Put a K&N filter into the stock box and just enjoy the car.

That way you can save up money for the transmission that you will need.

thanks for the reply

transmision has already been haha

so u think a new filter will give me enough benefits and its not worth adding any new pipe or anything?

Sorry but gota disagree, I got a short ram weapon-r intake in my 03 tls and it sounds amazing and adds a bunch of horsepower, seriously noticeable, but like common sense says, if you push that much air into you engine, you gota take it out right, so i would also get an exhaust to go with it :p
