    When you say 'exhaust', do you mean mufflers or full exhaust?

    I'd say with full exhaust, keeping the Cats, maybe 15 HP. With a CAI, maybe 2-3 HP.

    *Take what the manufacturers/sellers say about HP with a grain of salt, as not all cases will be the same...

    Any mod(s), when combined with a tune, would yield the best results.

    When I buy the tuner, is it as easy as they say, pretty much plug and play?

    I do not have a tuner, but if you buy the Tuner with, say, a CAI then it should be plug and play.

    Pretty similar to using a scanner to scan a CEL.

    If you purchase a tuner and a tune from us ... in short, then yes, it will be pretty much a plug and play. If you are ordering a tune and it is sent via email ... then you will have to load the tune on your device via a computer. You can reach out about the items here:

    http://www.sctflash.com/support/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=25&nav=0

    You will see minimal gains with the CAI & Exhaust ... the power adder comes from the tune. It is very hard to speculate on HP numbers ... but when we did our tune & cai on the V6 ... these are the numbers that we achieved - upto 20hp and 30ft/lbs of torque & possibly higher!

    When you add the exhaust you can expect

    OK, you say you did a tune on a newer v-6 with CAI, and got gains UP TO 20 hp, so was it 20hp or 10hp, THATS what I would like to know--- CHOP

    All I'm asking is, before I spend $7-8 hundred bucks on a CAI and a tuner is if I'm going to get 20HP gain, if so, then for me it's worth it , if not IDK--- CHOP
