i do believe there is a gain of 2-3 hp, for a custom built CAI for around 80-100$ (the work in progress one i'm planning right now) i don't think it would hurt my wallet much

1,000$ for custom CAI, + Headers (bimmerbrakes) + Remap, and get gain of around 35 hp, i don't think it is that substantial amount of dough
and it's not just to gain that tenth of a second in quarter-mile (i believe the difference would be more with those upgrades) u'll feel ur car very more responsive and torquy when hitting those twisties
