I'd go with an exhaust, can't go wrong with Greddy or HKS.

do you have a price limit?
cuz the intake will be your best bet if you are on a limit. if not, make that muffler rattle.

exhaust. If you have an intake forcing more air in your engine but cant get rid of it as fast (exhaust) then what good is it. Most stock systems with work fine with an intake, but an exhaust is a good place to start to making a quick car. These days they are all good. It comes down to personal preference, style, and brand loyalty.

I am a big fan of choosing whatever is the most expensive, since it is hardest to save for.
Exhausts you hear all the time, intakes, you only hear when you get on it.

Intake is going to be Cheaper U can find a AEM For $180 to $250. Or you might be able to get a Short Ram for around $100, it can be more if you get a differnet bran.

If you got the money get a Greddy exhaus.
Your Shit will sound good

just the muffler i dont think sounds good. My buddy has their fireball rip off i think on his older hatch with B16 swap. Sounds nice, but he has full 2.25" piping too..

If you put on exhaust, your engine will lose power becuase it will be like trying to exhale more than you have inhaled. If you go intake first, your engine will breathe better. You will notice more of a difference over stock with an intake than you would with just exhaust. And who cares when you hear what, it's not about sound. Come on people........

when i had my fireball style i noticed a loss from my stock B16A2. I switched the muffler to more of a stock style conister without tip. Looks sleeper and i ca feel the low end and midrange power kick back again.

i reccomend exhaust:
first of all, the idea of the engine losing power because it is exhaling toomuch is BS. You will lose a little low end power, but your high end will increase. the same will happen with a CAI.
also, because either (CAI or exhaust) is gonna give you minimal gains, I'd go with exhaust because it is more noticeable, and more appreciated.

just my .02
