Hi Everyone,
Quick question for you all.
I've had my stock 2008 TL for about a year now and other than blacking out the tail lights and side markers, and tinting all the windows I have not done any after market mods. Well, its time for tires, so I figured I would look at adding rims, any one have recommendations on what might look good without spending huge $'s?

One more question, what are everyone's thoughts on adding a K&N cold air intake, do you think it will make a huge difference in performance and MPG?

How's it going Brother, that is really up to you my man, just consider two things. Not just the style of the rim, but also the weight, you may get some bad ass rims; but if they weigh twice as much as your stock rims it wouldn't be a good idea. Probably the main reason why people buy fogiato's

Well we already have a stock cold air intake, it is just a little different than most concepts of the common CAI. It works just as good, but I would tell you my man, if you really want to see a boost in your performance I would highly suggest only two things. Buy a K&N Drop in box filter, for your resonator, and second I would heat shield all your pipes. This guy had a great post of research in the differences of the outside temp vs inside the pipe once it is sucked in. The temp difference was almost whopping, because the pipe it self is retaining heat, which lowers the amount of oxygen to your cylinders.

I did it myself, and WOW, what a difference; only cost me 20 bucks. I did not buy the K&N air filter though, but I suggest it to you so that you could feel an even minor increase of power. If your interested, i'll try to find you a link to the post; it is not on these forums.

NP bro, enjoy man; it is only a cheap and quick fix for more efficient engine performance.

Also look into removing the plastic cover over your engine because that retains heat, which will keep the intake manifold cooler.
