Default looking for intake, also a little trouble shooting

so im looking for some starting performance mods for my 99 ssei. definatly an intake..recommendations? also, i believe my lifter is broken or i have a leak in my exhaust manifold, because upon acceleration there is a ticking noise that is pretty noticable. it blends in to the normal exhaust noise, but it is noticable. any experience with this?? thanks guys

if youre looking for a cold air intake, k&n is the way most people choose to go. i think they guarantee the most out of their intakes too

K&N doesn't offer an intake for our cars.

The best intake on the market for the 3800'* is INTENSE'* Fender Well Intake (FWI).

Please post your mechanical issues in th 92-99 section. We'll help you with them there.

the best intake you can get is the one you make and for the record K&N isnt the best filter not for MAF cars like ours get The AEM DRY FLO it never needs oil or special cleaners just soap and water and has a higher efficency and CFM rating than the K&N

The best INTAKE is the INTENSE FWI. We've built and tested them all. It has nothing to do with the BRAND of the filter. We're talking INTAKE here.

I see you dont understand what i ment I said that AEM filters outflow K&N and i seriously doubt you tested them all on a dyno because there must be a hundre diffrent pipe diamters and ways to build a FWI so there is no concrete way you can make the intense FWI the best because that is merley youre opinion not fact
