I finally did it. I picked up a K&N FIPK CAI and got it installed Friday night. It only took about an hour, and that included the running back and forth for tools (since I worked on it while at work). And I gotta say....That Thing Is Bad Arse!!!! I drove the whole way home with the radio off just listening to the intake. It actually sounds a bit like what a V8 should. And even though I was into the gas quite a bit, I did notice an increase in MPG. I say an increase because I noticed the MPG average didn't drop nearly as much as it should have with me in the gas as much. I just can't get over how great it sounds.
The only thing I've noticed, and you guys lemme know if this is normal, is that I now hear a venting-type of noise every once in a while. It mostly occurs when the thing is first started, and goes away as things warm up. But, when I come to a stop sign or traffic light or something, I notice the venting when I slow down. It seems to originate on the passenger's side, in the area of where the vent from the valve cover and the CAI T-together by the firewall. Lemme know what ya'll think.
