I have a 1995 Firebird Trans Am that I have had for over a year now. Only mods done is a muffler. First part I am going to buy is a K&N Cold Air Intake. Anyone else have this intake that can give me feedback on it? I'd like to start out with smaller and cheaper things then building up to the more expensive ones. Keep in mind that I have limited mechanical knowledge and anything the average person can't do then I will have to take it to the garage. Open for mechanical AND visual customization.

honestly i'd get a set of long tube pace headers will cost about 240-280 from ebay, make sure to get the one with egr hookups. cost the same as k&N will give more hp. just need a shop to put them on.

I was thinking about getting an electronic exhaust cut out instead of straight piping it. I don't want it to be extremely loud all of the time and I only want the extra power when I need it. I have heard some negative things about them though. Any one have any experience with them?

you can get a exhaust cut out but your headers are still a restriction.

I would say the CAI is a good start. Easy to install, good power gains, and gently used ones can be had on ebay for $100
