No offense but if the stock airbox is just as good as the rest, why are you looking for mods for it?

Then, you will never Reap the Benefits of a Cold Air Kit.

There is a lot more to it than meets the eye.

from an untrained eye, I noticed these differences in CAIs vs the stock airbox.

1) high flow filter
2) intake tube with no resonance chambers
3) most have a larger opening behind the headlamp than the stock intake which only has a smaller diameter tube to pull air in from.

1) allows more air to get in, but also allows a tiny bit more debris
2) increases engine noise (most people like this) and may also change the airflow harmonics (hopefully for the better)
3) Not really sure if this is better or not to be honest, there must be a reason GM decided not to leave a large hole in the side of the airbox like most CAIs have... But from my perspective, it would appear that a bigger hole means air is more easily sucked into the filter versus the stock setup.

So from what I can really tell regarding a CAI, the air is pulled from the same place as the stock intake. The high flow filter allows more air in with less force.

But I cannot understand for the life of me why some CAIs such as the CAI inc intake do not have a much of a temperature rise at high RPMs as the stock intake. I know the CAI inc intake has a coated intake tube. I am not sure if this makes all the difference. But it's interesting.

Just using my common sense thought process, the stock intake draws ALL it's air via the little scoop in to the funnel from the box. That scoop draws it's air right off the edge of the radiator. I don't know how much this affects the temps, with the OEM setup, but i'm sure it doesn't help. The others can access the air from the bottom and all around the headlight which will help in increasing the amount of air available, in addition to NOT coming off the hot radiator.
