Why would there be a difference for manual or auto for an intake?

Only in terms of how the car reacts to the airflow. It may change the way the car thinks it needs to shift.

That occurred to me but I've never seen different intakes for auto and manual versions of the same motor. How about just make the highest flowing intake practical and call it a day?

No, I think its a matter of testing whether they'll need tuning of some sort.

Or it could just be that they're saying "it doesn't matter what tranny you have" not "we need some of each."

I'll be building my own intake, so it doesn't really matter to me anyway.

I wouldn't know yet because I don't have one but It LOOKS to me like the stock intake is decent. Wouldn't a K&N replacement take care of most of the gains?

Maybe, maybe not. I do know that a CAI gains 13 RWHP on this car with no tune.

On this car, or this engine, as in the CTS?

The gains I was referencing in particular came from a CTS, but the few intakes that have popped up so far seem to jibe with those numbers.

Except one that got 19 rwhp at the expense of a slight loss in peak torque... Can't remember exactly which one that one was...

I refuse to believe that a freer flowing intake (or exhaust for that matter) will cause an actual loss in torque. Maybe raising it to an unusable rpm, which is effectively the same thing, but not an actual loss...

If it leans out the air/fuel mixture at that RPM too much, then it could lose power. I'll look up the actual thread where the results were posted.
