Blacked out 2011 3.6 V6

Thought I would share my first ride with you boys and maybe some girls

Blacked out everything that was chrome with Plasti dip. It works wonders.
Cut the resonator off so just a straight pipe back from the catalytic converter with a chrome tip.
K&N cold air intake at 4,000 RPM you can hear it purr.
17" stock wheels going to buy red rotors to make the wheels stand out.

Let me know what you think

Great looking GC!

I have the same engine in the 2014 model and wondering what difference you've found with the K&n intake? Is it a noticeable different in acceleration or more just the sound?

With my K&N in, first you hear the road, than you feel the extra horsepower. The horsepower comes around 5,500 RPM's you will feel an extra push almost and the noise the intake makes turns heads when you floor it. Love the product, great sounding but not so much for the acceleration part, more horsepower in the higher RPM's and the rumbling sound.

Thanks for the response. I think I have to just bite the bullet and spend the $500 for the K&n. Is the install reversible (in case I sell the car)?

$500? I paid about $230 with taxes and shipping from streetsideauto.com. It is reversible I've read it online and my buddy also has swapped it in and out of his car before.
