I love my dp (dp-tuner.com) jody knows his stuff,the mbrp is about the only way to go with exhaust in my opinion,intakes jeeeez,there are so many...I'm getting ready to get mine and I'm torn between the S&b and afe.To each his own.Also search these forums for the tymar intake.Cheap, easy, and really works!! here's a link you might like
