IMO you don't gain much with a intake, get a good high flow air filter, I have a Perrin in the stock box. I'm catless up/dp in my 05, with stock exhaust, sounds pretty good, if you want more noise from the stock exhaust check out this.
Even with the exhaust the hp gain is about 10-12, is it worth the money.
You can do the washer thing now and see how you like the sound. Or do what I did, I removed the mufflers from my 09 Spec B and put the muffler deletes I had made for the wagon years ago, on it.
