sri since you dont lose your low end torque. and i dont think a cai is worth it since you only gain about 1-2 hp more than the sri.

is there a noticeable difference on either? Will gas mileage noticable improve? Will the car actually pull stronger?

There will be a noticeable difference with either, both audibly and seat of the pants. Not likely to improve MPG, in fact it will drop initially because you'll have your foot in it more often!

Yeahhh....I noticed that. It ticks down faster...probably because I pushing the throttle and going faster.

So...yeahhh....after I get my exhaust, me and my friends gonna race. He has a Mazda3 hatchback...AT (manu-matic though), CAI and that's all I think. Although his car is a lot lighter and more peppy...you think I have a shot? I declined the offer to race my other friend in a RSX Type S (stock though) 6 speed manual.

No. With a miracle, maybe. since you hae an auto, im guessing that you put down about 145-150ish to the wheel.
