Best intake without tune?
 
Wondering if any other fellow 1LE owners have installed and intake WITHOUT a tune.

Chime in with what you've got and your thoughts as far as fit, finish, noticeable performance increase, driveability concerns, etc.

I bought Cold Air Inductions Inc intake...fit and finish was great and looks nice. No CEL and ended keeping it when I put the Maggie on.

Jaydog760 07-05-2013 11:12 AM

Yeah, no knock, little temp climb, ease of install, fitment & looks, and hp gain

Thanks for showing me that table of all those intakes!

JDP Tyler 07-05-2013 01:06 PM

Yep CAI is pretty much #1 in performance. Roto-Fab is a great system as well and a bit more cost effective. The spread sheet shows the old design but has since been improved upon.

We do have some good specials going. Feel free to call, PM or email me for details.

Best regards,

After looking at the chart and searching the forums I went with a CAI intake from Apex Chase. Appearance wise, I don't believe the other intakes have anything on it..

I installed it last Saturday and am satisfied with it. Super easy install and detailed, near dummy proof, instructions.. I found it easier than installing the catch can..

Didn't notice as much of a difference, performance wise, as people on here claim, although there was a difference... maybe I was expecting too much after reading rave reviews.. maybe it'll wake up when I get around to installing the scoop and washer relocate... anyway, I think its worth it from the mpg differences alone.. used to average 16 mpg with spirited driving.. now it sits around 18-19.. but who knows how accurate the computer is.. ill find out what it actually is when I make my trip to NY in sepember

Awesome spreadsheet! this is some great info. How does Vararam or Volant compare to CAI?? anyone have experience with either. I'm really thinking of getting Vararam. thanks

I am looking to possibly add the CAI to my Camaro but was wondering if they have an oil free filter. My last car was a 2012 Mustang GT and I could never get the filter oiled right on the C & L CAI. The car would constantly die on me. I ended up having to remove it.

Anyone know yet if any of these (current) aftermarket intakes are going to fit the 2014s?

I think on the CAI website it's $16 extra for the dry filter

Here's what I put on mine (see line item 2), no tune and I dyno'd at 411 at the wheel whatever that means ...

Hands down performance wise is the CAI......
and fitment is a snap and obviously not least the finish!!:headbang:

I like my roto-fab...was about a half-bill cheaper than CAI, looks awesome, gets compliments, etc...imo, and i've said this elsewhere, there's not a major power difference between the big manufacturers. so i went with the cheaper one that i thought looks better in the bay. also, if i ever decide to go with a ram air hood, my air box is already open for it :D although i would have to drill for my vents again, and wouldn't get anything for my stock hood lol :(
as far as noticeable performance changes...i really don't remember now. i installed it right after my dyno run at 500 miles in january :iono:

Yea that's on my to do list. Had the race scoop and relocation done on my 12, just keep putting it off cause I hate:facepalm: the install on the scoop!

dgreenberg 07-06-2013 01:34 AM

Thanks everyone for the suggestions! Going to get one in the very near future! As soon as I pay off this new washer/dryer combo I got during all these crazy Fourth of July sales lol

What the AFR was stock then now? No clue. Will hooking up my ODBC II monitor tell me?

AFR - no. You need a real wideband sensor to detect it and something to display it in real time or log it for review.
So, if it's just a code reader, you really cant tell anything unless the car has stored some codes. The car can store some codes and not activate a CEL.
However, if you have a data logger, then you should be able to see the fuel trims. If they are pegged, then you need a tune or hardware correction.

If we are just talking a couple of bolt-ons, run it over to your dyno shop for an A/F check. If you are running anything more exotic then you may want to install a wideband gauge or logger.

t&t moyer 07-06-2013 07:49 AM

I had a CAI on my 12', this time went with RotoFab on my 13' and if I were doing it again I'd go with a New Era kit. Just my opinion.

Criag B 07-06-2013 03:11 PM

^^^ New Era looks like a nice unit. Someone needs to make a CAI that feeds from the dri. side fog light. Then make a lower billet grill that has fog lights built in it. No one better steal my idea LOL!!

Criag B 07-06-2013 03:18 PM

It would look something like this. http://www.efihardware.com/products/...-75mm-doughnut
