5.9 vs. mom-mobiles

Ok my friend said he raced a 5.9 in his aunts X5 the otehr day and killed them. Big argument ensued and wondering what yall think of the true outcome. I still love my jeep for offroading but still thinkin it is damn fast want to hear what yall think. I read some reviews saying it is faster than the X5 and ML55. Plus, I do want some power upgrades. Im almsot set set on a some or of K&N and Flowmaster 50 with some new headers. Which K&N is a good choice for some power/good running and about headers. Which are good I have no idea for those?

just get an FIPK for your intake. simple bolt on install. good results. downside is it's a bit pricy.

as for headers look at the add at the top of your screen right now. Banks is the best that money can buy.

If he killed them, then he was the only fool racing! The X5 has a higher topspeed thats all.
