I have Dinan products. I got the exhaust during one of their sales years ago, and I got the intake used from a guy who was upgrading to an Dinan S3 supercharger, which doesn't use the same intake, so I got that for less than half price. Unless you get a smoking deal like I did, I wouldn't recommended getting an intake. For the pure sound I'd do an exhaust and chip again, and would recommend that.

If your suspension is old, replacement with aftermarket will help improve the handling, and make it feel a little lighter on it's feet.
