None of them will give you anything. Unless you do other engine mods along with a tuner.

Stock air box with snorkel removed will give ya a different sound.

I've got a K&N with a Gibson exhaust and it sounds great. On cold mornings here in Wyoming my intake will make a whistling noise which sounds awesome. I'm also planning on buying the JET performance module so I'm hoping the 3 combined will help a lot. If I only had the intake I don't think I would be able to tell much of a difference.

JET chips are a waste

better off getting a tuner.

You can get a good tuner for about the same price and do more.
