i want to know the "ins and outs" with it. so far im looking at getting a K&N intake. what did you start with
oh, and BTW ... simply adding an intake to an '11 does not do much for you, unless you look into a stage 1 tune and account for it properly. If you have any plan to go the Accesport route for tuning, then look into the intakes they support (Cobb, AEM).

Honestly though, you should definitely do a considerable amount of reading before starting with the engine mods. K&N panel filter will not do anything to help your car. I would heed the advice of others above and just get through college.
Not to mention if you start messing with mods, you start messing with potential warranty issues. Having a driveable car through your college career is likely to be important and less costly than a new motor or new transmission.

thanks ying and bigdaddyrex. i agree, im going to do more research on what other people have done and most likely save up my money. thanks for the help guys, i appreciate it
Just graduated from PSU in May, then bought an 11 hatch in September. I wanted to make a little more power so I got Cobb AP ($400 used) and an AEM intake ($230 new). Definitely feels quicker, nothing too drastic though. Also got the Kartboy short shifter and front/rear shifter bushings ($155 for everything). Shifting feels vastly improved over stock, highly recommend Kartboy. Next I'll probably get a downpipe so I can run Stage 2.
If you do end up getting an intake, tune, downpipe, or really any performance mod just remember that theres a chance any warranty claim you make could be denied.
