it will most likely bring 5-10 hp. it should feel more responive yes and generally with more air comes more combustion creatinga deeper tone to you exhaust. might not be noticalbe tho. do they make a programmer for your car? if they do that will help bring out its full potential.

Horsepower gain, and feel is pretty insignifcant. The actual power difference is pretty small- especially on that stock of a setup; I really doubt you're gonna be able to feel the difference.

As for sound- it depends if you're supercharged or not. If you are, it'll scream like a banshee when you floor it. If you're NA, it'll just be louder up front bya tad. Most intakes on these engines also produce a pretty loud sucking noise on cold startups and such.

Don't waste your time on a non SC motor, its just a waste of time.

There will be next to no HP gain. The mufflers aren't a restriction till about 300 hp to the wheels.
