    Definitely worth it! I think one of the lids yield the best gains. Volant is good and looks cool IMO. But I have also heard good things about the K+N fipk Here is a picture of my volant, sorry its so small but its my avatar picture, just let me know and I can take a bigger one. You didn't mention if money is a factor.

    cold air intake

    I put an SLP cold air intake on my car. You need to cut a little plastic to install it. It's a stainless steel box open at both ends that fits under your air filter. Air is forced into it. The faster you go the faster the air flows. I think this mod makes a difference and it is not all that expensive. If your car is not a WS6 you will get a rubber strip gasket to block off the front air flow. Put a free flowing air lid and smooth air bellows on the car also. I know the cold air intake works because the filter gets real dirty a lot sooner. This tell me it's getting more air. And add a K&N filter or the Holley air filter. they run about $50. I never checked the gas milage on my T/A because I don't care what it gets, I drive it for fun, it's not an everyday driver. I put a K&N on my '03 2500 HD Sierra and the gas milage picked up 1.5 MPG. This pays for the filter in no time flat with todays gas prices.
