I've installed one on my car. I also debaffled the air box (tons of stuff if you search for it on this forum)

The power gains are marginal at best. But, I get better gas mileage and it's a little more throaty from the engine (mostly because of removing baffle)

removing the baffle lets your car breathe more but it doesn't increase performance...
the sound is very cool tho...

You can get the O2 sensors at AutoZone. I'm sure you could rebaffled your airbox, but you shouldn't have to. It does give you about 5 HP if you debaffle and put a green filter in. O2 sensors are more expensive if it's after the CAT.
