if its a CVT, then no, the CVT wont handle the power and wouldnt be of any use... if its a manual, then you probably could, but it would be expensive... you have to rebuild the whole engine and strengthen it to handle the forced induction.

Exhaust and CAI are it. And of course trading the car for something else.

you can get a mopar or dc sports (same thing) header as well. paired with the CAI and exhaust (i have magnaflow and K&N), on paper you should have around 28 more horsepower than stock.

The header is part of the exhaust. ;)

And the point I was making is that it's part of the exhaust. I didn't breakout the muffler and cat either. Exhaust means everything from the engine back through to the tail pipe. So there!:Na_Na_Na_Na::gr_grin:

i know the header is part of the exhaust system... but i was just letting him know that it was a component to buy. i didnt know there was a header until i read about it on here. i knew there was a magnaflow system tho... no high flow convertors tho lol

FYI, just before some AWD owner gets disappointed, there is NO aftermarket exhaust manifold headers available for the AWD model.

Thats because the AWD doesn't have a n exhaust manifold.

It has a "maniverter", which is a combination manifold and cat. There's another smaller cat down the line.

Maniverter sounds painful!

Been discussed a plethora of times. Jet couldn't even get one of their chips to work. All it did was mess the engine up. They gave up.
