It may do something, but not a whole lot on its own. You would definitely need a proper tune to get the real benefits.

Don't forget you would also want a new exhaust system (not just the muffler, all of it) to go with those other mods.

Read up in this forum, there is a ToN of information that will answer your questions about increasing performance. Also check out the Articles section!

the Fuel rail has nothing at all to do with improving performance. the stock rail can support enough fuel for 400+ hp.

This topic has been covered extensively in the articles, particularly the engine package articles and the flow velocity versus volume articles.

use your brain before you waste your money.

Intake manifold comparison thread

A higher flow intake manifold matched with a CAI is the right direction for the intake side. the critical things you need to look into is the flow capacity and the velocity, and the resonant dimensions of the different sections. that means the runners, the plenum, and the intake pipe.
Again all covered in the articles.

With that said, skunk2 and others make reputable products that have stood a considerable test of time.
The main take away is that the shorter runners, the higher the "peak" power is on the RPM scale. the stock b18a/b engine looses power in the upper end due to camshaft dimensions, the valve train, and a host of other reasons.
If you buy "type-r" style products, they will deliver "type-r" results along a "type-r" powerband. if your motor cannot safely reach that rpm, then you are wasting your money.

I would look at what the guys are doing with the B18a/B's in a NA configuration. there are a few members out there that have done thier homework and put thier package together so the components match each other.

The flip side of improving the intake capacity is the exhaust efficiency. you got to get that stuff back out.

Finally you would need to tune it when you are done adding the parts to your car, (or just done for a while) to get the best gain.

Keep reading here before plunking down your cash. that way you make the most informed descisions and get the best "bang" for your buck.
