you don't have to touch the windshield washer fluid with the CAI either. only if you want to add the scoop...

I went with Cold Air Inductions Inc. CAI and I couldn't be happier, looks awesome and matches the car perfectly as well, in my opinion.

In the end, it's your decision. Choose what you like better.

Reading other posts the CAI has a top score of 9.38 being Number 1 mod...reason I ask is 2 club members have MRT2 axel back exhaust, 1 member has Volant intake other has CAI the member with the Volant intake and the MRT2 sounds BADDAZZ member with the CAI and the MRT2, sound just okay

it's not always about sound. have they ever gone against each other down the 1/4 mile track?

No they havent, and the one with the CAI does drive kind of reserved, the one withthe Volant really hits it hard, could be a contributing factor

Certain ram air hoods have an outlet for the ram air that is designed specifically for the top of the CAI INC case. You can take the plexiglass piece out or something and it mates up to the hood when its closed.

you do NOT need to touch the washer bottle for the CAI Inc one. I took mine out anyway because its heavy, and I never use it. It also blocks air flow if you get a scoop, or just want to cut the hole out for where a scoop will go.

BTW the CAI made my exhaust note sound much "throatier" if that makes any sense

Volant is the way to go, better performance numbers on the dyno. Better look for me as it looks totally factory. Really opens my MRT V2 Exhaust so much loader than the CAI intake, easier to take care of, doesn't get dirty so you see all the dirt underneathe, easier to get to the windshield washer fluid, less money, plus everyone has the CAI its overrated & everyone you see looks the same under the hood.. Be difference dont follow the clan of CAI intake Camaros!
