CAI intake in black?

I think I saw a CAI intake in black somewhere on site. Was that a custom job or do they really come in black?

You can probably get them other places too, but I know Jannetty Racing sells them... here's a link to the black one.

Edit: You'll get $9.99 off if you use the coupon code: Camaro5

That's the one I want - not sure why black costs $50 more though. Seems like it would be the same or maybe even cheaper.

The reason the Black CAI is 50.00 more is because it's a non standard coating for Cold Air Inductions. Basically the person who does their coating charges them for the black coating because they are not doing as much volume as the ceramic coating.

Hopefully that clarifies things a little bit

No problem at all. It's typically a 1 week wait for the Black kits.

You probably saw our sales thread in the vendor area or one of our customers who posted pictures. It is a special order item from CAI but we keep them in stock so our customers don't have to wait. If you have any questions feel free to hit me up.

I think CAI said that the black doesn't dissipate the heat as well as the ceramic coating.

Here's my question - when are one of you site venders going to have a group purchase for the CAI intakes? Like $50 off if you get X orders? I'm sure it would drum up a lot of business.

In fact, I think that Camaro5 should add a "Group Purchase" forum to encourage vendors to offer more of them. Other sites have this, and its usually the first place I browse every time I visit the site. Everybody likes a good deal...

Just so you guys know there are sponsors on the board that match this price. Not just us but others as well.

Problem is we are already making very little on the CAI kits. James is a very small company that is still getting rolling. The product margins aren't there for him or us to do it. We would have already been on it :(

He does a new facility coming which will help with a production. We will see what the future holds.

Check out each section in the sponsors forum, we actually just finished a group buy and I've seen quite a few from others vendors

That could well be true in this case. But if he wants to grow, some large orders might lower his costs and help facilitate his expansion... at least that's the type of thing I've seen in the past. A lot of small manufacturers seem to be willing to drop the price only when being guaranteed a certain number of units sold.

And I do check the vender forums occasionally for sales and have seen a few group buys. But there are too many to browse daily, like I would check a group purchase only forum. There are still a lot of things I would buy for my Camaro if the price was right.

I agree with you. We have placed large orders, he can't go any lower on the price and it's not enough margin to do a group buy.

I like the idea of a group buy forum. I was just helping you out in the meantime.

The other issue is He can't keep up with the demand currently, but this will be rectified with the new facility.

+1 Ceramic coated or black, we can't get them fast enough. We take them off the truck, slap shipping labels on them and put them back on the truck.
