performance upgrades

Hey guys-

I just ordered an 07 gc srt-8 that will arrive in Oct. I want to add an induction kit, headers and exhaust. From what I have read the Corsa sounds like the exhaust. What about the headers? Someone mentioned Kooks. Has anyone installed headers with the Corsa exhaust? What about an air induction kit? I currently have a 2000 GC with the kn, borla and performance chip, (no headers) and it sounds great when you stand on it and is mellow when just idling. I don't want anything to obnoxious. Something that sounds like it belongs on the vehicle. Any suggestions. Thanks.

Re: performance upgrades

Welcome aboard, and nice choice of color!

You are on the right track with Corsa. As far as the intake, besides a few design parameters, most CAI's are the same. Thus, choose the best looking one . However, I would recommend buying a CAI that implements a totally sealed box.

If your primary criteria for a CAI is a totally sealed box keep it stock.

Re: performance upgrades

I have KOOKs and MagnaFlow.. its great.. I kept my Stock box.. u need to select the best CAIs based on the look, material used, and design. GSM uses SS tube, which heats up quickly, and thats why i took it off and re-used my stock one..

Re: performance upgrades

I don't like any inclosed intake air box, too restrictive. (Very little heat absorbsion on the inlet metal tube) DCX Engs only comments (at the Nats) on the CAI is the underhood versions heat soak and causes a loss of HP, maybe 5 to 8? (their comments not mine) I personally like GSM and second Dub's, open filter element with a cold air source. Headers, ported heads are another subject. I question much of a performance gain using the current versions. I have information on this subject. MO and Others. HTH Gene

Re: performance upgrades

Any word on when K&N will offer a CAI? I looked on Kook's website and was unable to locate headers for the jeep. I take it they are custom made? Anyone know the cost?
