its good to know there are alternatives to the noise can. i was aware that the majority of major mods were going to require more airflow, and i was afraid that there weren't any options for me. for now i'll probably just keep my car stock and ride my warranties for the next 30,000 miles, then decide whether i will mod or not. Thanks for all the info guys. props to awd-pwnz and his sexy subi....sorry for the salty comment today.
