if performance is what you want, ket a K&N CAI instead of BBK...unless of course you want the looks.  The K&N being plastic, performs better, and doesnt suck in the heat.  Some will say get the JLT, because again, its plastic, but its a waste of money for anyone who has common sense.  Its just PVC piping that they use, and charge you a fortune for...you can make one from home depot for like $20 LOL.

anywho....i wouldnt bother with the BBk underdrive pullies.  All they do is slow accessories down.  if you have an good stereo setup, it will function poorly.  The power gains overall from UD pullies are minimial, and not worth the drain on the accessories.

Take the added $$ you saved from not getting these pullies, and use them towards a set of lowering springs.  a nice used set can be had cheap, and you can do the install yourself.  heck i did it!!

as for the force 2 exhaust...they sound good, but are pretty mild compared to the original 40s.  so if your looking for some good loud sound, you may not get it with the 50s in the force 2 kit.

and finally, dont waste your money on the tornado thing...they are worthless.

oh, and you said AC Delco fuel filter....you know AC Delco is a GM product correct?  i think you meant motorcraft.

yes, ud pullies are no good for an s/c application.

thanks for all your input everyone, i just wanted to see what everyone thought because im only 16 and i have alot to learn about cars. i thought bbk was a good brand of intakes. ive heard that k&n filter have oils on there filters that arnt good for your engine and thats why i stoped looking at those. as of right now i have half an intake becasue the guy that wrecked it took off the other half before it was wrecked.

the underdrive pullies..... i want to get as much hp and tourqe as possible and at a $5.50 paying job idk what to buy that would get me what i want. also i wont be able to buy a supercharger for my car for a while and i figured if i bought the ud pullies i could resell them in ebay for about $20 or so when i do buy a supercharger.

AC delco vs motercraft..... i went to summitracing.com and checked if the acdelco would fit my car and it said that it would fit Ford, Jaguar, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercury, or Subaru.

thank you to everyone that has commented on this blog so far it has already helped me alot on what to buy.

bbk has quality parts, but for performance, its not the way to go.  its not a matter of who makes it...bottom line is a metal intake with absorb engine bay heat, thus make it uselss...cant be a "cold" air intake if its heating up.....plastic doesnt absorb the heat...and will yield you better performance.  if a k&N filter is oiled properly, it wont harm anything.  keep in mind, most aftermarket CAIs come with a K&N or similar reusable filter, which would have to be oiled once in a while. 

Jan 7th, 2007 @ 8:26 PM


does k&n make a full kit for my car??? i couldnt find one and im not getting the pullies and im gettin a k&n filter now instead and im also not getting the tornado insert
