I find reading information from those with first hand experience more useful than someone repeating others experiences, or worse, repeating said experinces as their own.

If i may ask a question. I'm interested in getting a CAI upgrade. I am not worried about increasing horsepower. I just want a good quality one that will help with gas mileage and the sound. Any advice would be apprecisted.

I never really notice mpg changes stock, cai box style, or OTR. Sound wise, you will get more sound from one that is basically an open cone under the hood, or HAI (hot air intake) I believe K&N may fall into this catagory. The Ingen fenderwell intake probably has a noticable sound increase as well. The sealed boxes and OTR put the sound toward the front of the car and you'd hear less from those...sound is an opinion thing..and that's all mine is. I bought solely on performance potential.

Our air box design uses the hood as our "lid" to effectively isolate engine compart air while maximizes air box size and area around the filter-both of which help the filter draw air more efficiently.
However, we often hear the question, "Does your air box seal really contact the hood?"
These pictures are taken from outside of the car with the fender liner and tire removed.



Nice pics...thanks for sharing.

I can tell you the CAI is a very well built nice looking setup. But I didn't notice much sound increase over stock. I can only assume sound increase with the Roto-Fab would be like the CAI. Don't know about the Volant. Roto-Fab and CAI rated very high on dyno testing and current owners.

FWIW, one of my first mods was my Roto Fab and it was a noticeable sound increase.

We are getting really close on the Roto-fab W/W reservoir. It will come with everything you need to install with absolutely no modifications to your car-no drilling, cutting, etc.

I'm quite confident you will love the sound of our intake. One of our customers said it best, "My Camaro sounds like a Camaro with the Roto-fab intake."
I don't have mileage stats-hopefully someone will chime in on that.

How is that "independent testing"? An independent tester does not sell any of the parts they test. Independent testers are a 3rd party hired by manufacturer's to do the testing and then publish it. They charge a fee to do this and don't sell any of the parts they test. I would question any of the numbers posted. There are a lot of sheep in this forum for sure and so make sure you do your research.

I just ordered a injen cai, but if I had an SS I would be buying a vararam. They have the biggest gains out there.
