I did just a K&N when I bought the car, I am happy with it. I would like to upgrade to the Crab soon though. But from what I have heard and read, those tornado deally whoppers are a scam... :-(

Yea, its what I was thinking it was. I could be wrong, it actually might be useful, but if it were me I would do a ton of research before I bought it... but that's the way I am with most purchases over $20 :p

I noticed a lot snappier throttle response with the e3's. Hopefully you dont have a 3.6L - the top left plug is next to impossible to remove without un-bolting the intake manifold... engineering fail :p

I really want to upgrade to a crab with the fpu, but I am in the middle of switching jobs, so its on the back burner.

well the tornado seems to be a bust lol...what about a tune? how much do they cost? or is there a better 'bang for your buck' option?

thanks for any help
Folks (I should have chimed in sooner), the tornado thing is a massive scam. Air flowing through an opening will only be slowed by resistance; the tornado adds the resistance. If you add this bull$hit you are in fact adding resistance to your airflow. Air does not flow better while spinning around like toilet water but for sure your money will be going down the drain. Airflow is optimal when unimpeded.
The very first time I saw those commercials I laughed and though, “they’re slowing the air down!” If the air has to swirl then it’s taking longer to pass through hence less airflow.
