Depending on who you go through, Borla's ATAK runs from about 1300-1600, but most places aren't getting shipments as fast as they get orders from people due to the high popularity. I have the money for it now, I'm just waiting a bit before pulling the trigger, but the ATAK is definitely the one I have my eye on.
Yes, I am in Virginia. Up north, right by Dulles Airport.
It sounds great; exactly how an upgraded intake should sounds. Gives it a little more of a 'muscle car' feel minus the exhaust sounds (which is next up on the upgrade list! ) I can vouch for the 'waking up' for the car, though. It certainly does that.
I was deciding between the ADM, CAI Inc, and the Roto-Fab CAI, and ultimately the Roto-Fab won out, as you can see.
No, I haven't done it yet and probably won't until I beef up the car a bit more, if I put it in at all. From what I understand, the car is programmed to operate at 195 and the addition of the 160 thermostat will throw it out of wack, like you mentioned, and ultimately result in some codes. I would assume that the only logical way to get rid of that is to tune the car, so I would assume that what you heard is correct.
The Roto-Fab CAI is great though. I love it and it's only been on for a mere 2 hours! Hope you enjoy it when it arrives!
really? they make you go through an inspection every year? and they look for things like that?! man i thought California's laws were bad, we just have the most strict smog requirements in the country but at least they aren't checking our windows...
good luck, let me know what you end up doing...
i think my sides are 35 and the back is 10... i think. i want by names and called it "limo" on the back and "dark" on the sides... so it is a little illegal for you, but we aren't allowed to have any tint on the windows so it is way illegal for me. but it just looks so damn good!
