Default Cold air intake

I am new to the pt. I just got a 2003 last month. I love it!

I have been looking on ebay at these mods and things, and I'm not too sure about them.
I also looked a t the cold air intakes. It looks fairly easy to install. (I'm no mechanic though)

[?] I was wondering if anyone else had one on their car. Does it help power? Gas mileage?

Any help would be great. Post or email me.

Thanks

Air intake is worth it. Can't comment on power or mileage - slight improvements in both, I suspect, but what it does do is reduce "lag" when you punch the gas.[?]

Is it easy to install? Can a non-mechanic do it? Anything tricky to look out for?

Oh, and how does it affect the sound? Is it loud and annoying or does it sound cool?

Sorry for all of the questions. Again, Newbie.

if you can use a screwdriver and install a new airfilter... you can do this. it should bolt right in if you get the K&N or the Airraid (possibly others)

How much did you pay for yours? I'm looking at either the airaid or build my own from instructions from PTDIY.net

Airaid is the closest thing to a cold air intake. The rest are hot air intakes because they suck in hot engine air. I'd rather have the Airaid.
