Open or Enclosed Airbox.....final decision

Making my final decision about which intake to choose with my street package from JRE. CAI or Airraid

Do you still here the "sucking" noise with an enclosed airbox?

If you want an open box, I would go with the Halltech. Between CAI and Airaid, the CAI wins hands down IMO.

I just received the new Vararam V2 intake for my car, believe me this thing definitely fixed all the surging and bucking issues with the original intake. I can't even catch 2nd gear b/c I'm losing traction in first even with a rolling start. This thing is insane.

I went with the Cold AIr Inductions and love the way it sounds when you put your foot in it.

It would been interesting to see both the polished ceramic coated CAI and the the black CAI tested. Wonder how much of a difference in IAT's there would be between the two.

Halltech, CAI, or ADM.

Between open and closed air boxes in general.....it's pretty much a prefrence thing. Go with the one you like the looks of.

One day people here will wake up and realize that an over the radiator intake is the best available.. until then let them argue over which 90* bend with a filter stuck on it is the best. lol.

Care to back up those claims on a 2010/11 Camaro?
