    CAI

    APS 65mm CAI is ~$200 shipped new

    However, an intake/catback will do nothing major except make your car sound mean. You really should look into removing catalytic converters and proper ECU manipulation.

    I doubt it, especially if the ambient temperature is low in your area when you smell fuel. There is a relatively long "I smell gas" thread floating around, see if you can find it, it may be a fuel leak from one of the connections that's well-known.
