Question 1LE Cold Air Intakes

What is the best Cold Air Intake for the 1LE? I have a 2013 2SS 1LE Blacked Out. I will have pictures up soon.

this my friend is a can of worms everyone has there own beliefs but for the most part they are all relatively close in performance especially if your not going to have it tuned .....the best i have heard is from a tuned version of the varraram which is a very interesting design for an intake... but im not really sure what your looking for?

Blacked out you say? Then this might be right up your alley.

Cold Air Inductions CAI black from Apex! Don't forget the scoop and washer bottle relocation kit. Definite improvement in throttle response and power. I love mine! If you have any questions, ask for Chase at Apex and he will definitely take care of you!

They are proven better than stock. Just because you don't like them doesn't mean they are bad.

Regardless of what gains people imagine they add look at the silly things.

Cody6.2- You made your point that you don't like the look. You add 0 value to this thread and sound more trollish than informative. So far you're drawing a blank as to what you think would be a better intake.

The CAI intakes have been proven in an independent street study by a C5 vendor (do a search) before to actually improve performance. Not like a supercharger or anything, but it does free up a few ponies and torque. And they look better than the stock box IMO.

Finally Some Pictures!

I think I figured out how to post pictures! So this is my baby! What do you think? Please note these pictures were taken with an Ipad. Not the best quality. What do you guys think I should do to her? I am getting a cilajet coating on it next week to protect the paint. I am looking into cold air intakes as you can see. I don't really know what else to do. Any suggestions?

This is it at the dealership before I bought her.


This is her when I brought her home.


Open Hood Picture


Love this car!

Thanks Brotha. Honestly, I didn't get this car to show off. I want to get what's best for the car. So far I have heard that the CAI is the best when it comes to intakes.
