Camaro SS cold air intake
 
I was thinking about putting in an intake but i'm not sure with which company i should go with. Does anyone have any suggestions? Also how much would my mpg and hp increase? thanks

The most popular intakes in the forum are CAI Inc, Rotofab and Vararam. Cheaper options include K&N and Spectre. Everyone is probably going to recommend you what they have. I just switched from a K&N to a CAI and the fit is much better as it is more expensive but the seat of the pants feeling is about the same (most intakes gain you around 10 hp). It depends on which one you like and what you want to spend.

I went AIRAID and love it. Personally I think they're all good, it's just a tube with a open filter on the end of it lol

As you can already tell, CAI Inc intakes are very popular for these cars. The link that JimE posted is a tech article I wrote to answer some of the questions people have about air intake systems. Give it a look and if you have any questions feel free to send me a private message.

cold air intake is an aftermarket assembly of parts used to bring relatively cool air into a car's internal-combustion engine.
Most vehicles manufactured since the mid-1970s have thermostatic air intake systems that regulate the temperature of the air entering the engine's intake tract, providing warm air when the engine is cold and cold air when the engine is warm to maximize performance, efficiency, and fuel economy. Aftermarket cold air intake systems are marketed with claims of increased engine efficiency and performance. The putative principle behind a cold air intake is that cooler air has a higher density, thus containing more oxygen per volume unit than warmer air.

They are all solid improvements but I will have to admit that I love the looks of the CAI as well...

My feeling is that the three best are CAI, Rotofab, and Vararam. I have experience with all three..and the results will be similar. I feel like at the track, the Vararam has a slight edge. We picked up 2 tenths switching to it at the track.

The hennessey is the best looking....but in hindsight, I probably would have bought rotofab instead because it has a plastic tube

Vararam - it can't be beat for bringing outside air (at speed) into the intake.

I'm with them!! Vararam ftw

But if you don't like the style of the vararam get a rotofab or haltech. I prefer the plastic tubes over the metal tubes.

Yea Vararam is the way to go if you truly want the coldest possible air. And it is definitely the best as far as looking different than the typical CAIs out there.

HeavyChevySS 05-05-2013 07:00 PM

Is there a performance gain With the plastic? Or just loooks wise u mean?

litle88 05-05-2013 07:17 PM

Metal heat soaks I've seen it, and cools down waaay slower than plastic tubes. I don't care how much coating is on them. But that's just me.
