Not everything is the same but some stuff is the same.... best bet is to spend a bit of time and read through a bunch of the threads on here as you should be able to find a lot of info. There's a way to vent your stock bpv to atmosphere to make it sound like a bov and many people like the 6th element intake. I'll probably buy one down the road.... but there's is lots of good info on site. ...

That will work to start with. I would do the intake and some catch cans. Also if you can take the stock mid pipe on the exhaust off and knock out the crap in the second cat and you can have a exhaust shop delete the stock res. It does give it a little bit of a tone or just do a muffler on it with the res delete

Oh I know was just saying if you wanted some tone to the stock exhaust. I have the i.c res delete also. What you have ordered so far is a good start. I would try to do the catch cans asap though

Make sure you cap the port on the intake tube after. Also you can take the tube off the bov also.

You have to remove the hose for your new intake anyway. If you do that now, just make sure the end where it connects to your stock intake tube is capped.

Yep. there is no other intake to even question. Get the 6th Cai or sri or the 6th mob will show up at your house and you don't want to know what happens next. :p
