Halltech Yellow Jacket CAI on an L99

Anybody have this CAI to an L99. Talked to Jim at Halltech and he had not tried to fit one on an L99 only on LS3's. Any reason it wouldn't work like different intake manifold opening size? It's gonna be this or the Cold Air Induction unit which will certainly fit.

Thanks,

Pat

No, it is identical. It will bolt right up. I am surprised he couldn't answer that question.

While he may not have initially tried fitment on a L99, I can assure you that several L99's are running them. I had the very first L99 car with a Yellowjacket. Talked to Jim quite a bit and gave him a lot of feedback. Fitment isn't an issue as long as you install it right. Most issues I've seen had to do with the person not having the shield in the right place. It's a great intake that has parts of it copied by a few other companies. You may find a better looking intake but you won't find a better performing one.

I have the Yellowjacket on my L99 as well and it fits and performs very well!! I noticed a big difference in the sound and performance of the car when I first put it on. Haven't had any issues and I have had it on the car for almost a year now.

Plug and play.I painted mine to match the car if you are not into the dull black plastic look.It works great. Nice thing is Jim tuned it so it really doesnt mess with the as is stock A/F ratio. Keeps it close so the computer isnt over compensating rich or lean.

I order a Halltech CAI Sunday from Maryland Speed. It still hasn't shipped. Apparently, they're on back order.

You have to make sure you get the heat shield in the right place. It has some notches in the bottom that fit over the SS hard lines down there.
