I am at the same juncture with my V6.... i suppose you have to ask yourself what are you expecting to gain?..
..improving the appearance under the hood, trying to eek out a little more induction roar of the lovely sounding motor or just getting rid of the OE airbox ?
The performance gains, as mentioned above are negligible and it is worth mentioning if not done right it could be a step backwards!.. There is nothing much wrong with the factory set-up that a new filter won't sort!...cheaper and how many people can see under your bonnet?
Its a personal thing and i like to tinker, so I'm going down the stainless hard pipe route but might utilise the original airbox!!
