I have the K&N intake (not just filter) and I have Borla exhaust. I love the sound and look of the Borla. The parts were installed before I owned the car so I can't give you the butt dyno numbers.

Your questions are more of a personal preference nature for most of us.

Some prefer a more quiet cruise (Corsa. which is approved by GM but is much cheaper elsewhere) while others prefer a more muscle-car type sound (Magnaflow). These are probably the top two, although there are also exhaust products from other manufacturers in the fray.

K&N and Volant make complete CAI systems. Lingenfelter (LPE) makes an air box with a very large filter but no intake tube (uses the stock tube).

Personally, I use an LPE air box (w/stock tube) and Corsa exhaust. :D

I'm looking at changing the intake tube out for one of the aftermarket plastic units because of the flexibility of the stock tube under the heavier demands of larger cubes. :eyes:
