New G6 intake question

So i just got rid of my 07 G6 GT coupe (a ridiculous amount of problems) for a 08 G6 GXP Coupe Street Edition. So instead of going into appearance mods right away like i did with the old one, i want to do some performance. So in all honesty, what is the best intake i can buy (as in HP incrase, MPG increase, etc)
thank youu!

Alright thank you. so im on the site right now, the best one that is available is option 3 because the upgrade FPU is sold out. Is this still worth it?

Absolutely!!!!
Option 3 is a complete intake, and the FPU can be added at any time
I have O3, and am in love with it!

I'd say prob a 2-3.
There are great instructions for install, but I found getting the rubber coupler onto the MAF was a little tricky. That is easily solved by removing the coupler from the stainless tube, putting it onto the MAF, then putting the stainless tube back in.

"full" intake just includes the box, coupler, and a filter, so dont expect any piping. When I think of a full intake, i think of a full intake from the tb to the filter. I personally dont think it should be labeled full intake, unless its truely a full intake. Just my opinion though.
