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.

lol.. npp exhaust.. they'll hear you before they see you! i did the whole washer bottle, air scoop mod. there is a thread showing the various gains. some websites/vendors use different methods for measuring. the thread sort of put that into perspective. let us know what you go with!

I use the K&N 63-3074. It aint fancy. Looks OK (not flashy like others). And I pulled 411HP on the dyno with no other mods. And that's using a Dynapak dyno:

I didn't tune with the dyno either. This was just a baseline. My cheapo CAI seems solid to me.

That's the one I use. Plastic has to be better for driving around heat soaked than the CAI kit. I have been bashed for this before because vendors show dyno gains on cold pulls. I challenge a vendor to show a heat soaked 30 mile cruise IAT on the "metal coated" CAI vs another brand with a "plastic" tube. No one drives for 40 seconds to do a dyno pull and cools off for an hour before the next. We continuously drive around with heat soak.

My buddy has a CAI brand on his 2010 and everytime after a cruise I can't touch his intake tube for more than 3 second without burning my hand. I can rest my hand just fine on my el-cheap-o, horrible,power losing(according to people in other threads) K&N intake.

The fishbowl comment was funny. No doubt there's a lot of time and $$ in those big fancy boxes, and there's no surprise that's what you're paying more for.

my opinions are my own and from my personal experiences. If you feel the need to flame me and call me troll....go for it.

I ran that same intake on my 2011 LS3 for a while. It is a quality piece.

I like my intake. When i pop the hood it looks good and for me it is more power. Whatever you decide, enjoy the ride!
