Custom or Brand ? and other questions

Hey guys (and gals),

i was wondering: what do you prefer or what do you think is better ? a custom CAI and custom exhaust line or a brand-name one like AEM or Injen or DCSPORT or whatever ?

Anyway, I finally decided I'll get some mods for my car... I'd like to spend not more than 2000 can$ before the summer on my car. where should I start ? I don't have a clue. it's going to be my first time.

thanks a lot,
see ya

the difference in HP between the two should be pretty insignificant. do whatever your budget permits[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

custom costs a lot more than brand-name ? or the inverse ?

i thought custom was cheaper than name brand?
(this applies only to little stuff like a CAI or cat back, nothing like a turbo)
CAI's= one is no better than the other IMO
catbacks= slight difference but depending on budget get what you can afford.

alot of people start with a short ram or CAI as their first mod
