i dont know whether to get cold air intake or an exhaust system. a friend told me to do exhaust cuz without it i'll be blowin too much air out with a stock exhaust. also i was wonderin if yall had ne ideas on engine cover colors. i already got the red calipers.

I started with exhaust. They compliment each other but I dont see any wrong thing to start with there. If you have money for exhaust that is where I would start. I have the trubendz exhaust which was about the best price that I found.

I also started with an exhaust. I should of went with a cold air first. It provided the most gains, especially with the exhaust.

I'm personally doing my short shifter before exhaust and intake. It comes in tomorrow :D Also, ground your throttle body. It helps. And do a red/black engine cover set up with red calipers.

i just ordered my mazdaspeed cold air intake last night and can't wait to get it in! i don't really think it matters which you get first just as long as you're happy with your purchase

first, your frieds is an idiot. a cai doesn't increase the volume of air going in to the egine, just lowers the airs temperature.

second, i'd go with the cai first.
