Can't make up my mind

I'm trying to make up my mind. I'm interested in getting a CAI for my car, but I also want a new digital camera. I went out shopping for a camera last night. I like the new Sony Cybershop DSC P200



I can't afford to do both (the camera and the CAI) at the same time. I want both equally. Which one should I do first? I'm not trying to gain any hp from the intake, I just want it for the sound... Opinions please?

The price of the camera will either go down over time, or the features will upgrade for the same price. The intake will remain the same for some time. My point is, you won't lose anything if you wait on the camera as it will either cheaper, or better.

Um yea your CAI might even save you gas money, or at the very least it'll put a smile on your face every time you drive your car. That in itself is priceless.

Re: Can't make up my mind

Yeah, but I love taking pictures of the sunset & my car, or the ocean, things like that. But, I have an old ass camera thats only 1.3 megapixels. I dunno


Every time I decide on one, I come up w/ a reason to get the other. Someone just loan me 1000 bucks so I can do what I want!!!!!!!

Re: Can't make up my mind

just remember the cai may void your engine warranty.. if you dont care about that then go for it.

Re: Can't make up my mind

I ASKED the one on broad! Pearson, right? Used to be Capital? I called the service dept about 3 or 4 months ago & specifically asked. He said "you're not putting a turbo on your car, are you?"
