What do you guys think of the Cold Air Inductions Intake?

I have a V8, but am having a hard time figuring out what intake to get. I haven't done any mods to my car but would like to see what you guy's think of the CAI intake. Would you prefer this intake over Robo-Fab, Spectre, and all the other popular one?

Thanks in advance to any advice you guys can provide me with

I love mine....... when I bought mine, I did alot of researching and determined that I wanted either the CAI or the Roto-fab. They bother were tested by Jannetty racing in an independent test and both did very well.....better than most. When it came down to it, I loved the craftsmanship and the fact that it had the lid. It is a beautiful piece of work and the customer service from Bill and the others over there are second to NONE! Buy one!

I have the black CAI Inc intake and I love the way it looks. I don't think you can go wrong with either the Roto Fab or CAI. The ADM looks awesome as well. For the most part, pick the one that looks best to you. Performance wise they are all close enough not get to bent out of shape over.

Just my thoughts.

Wow, you live in Plano. You need to go over to ADM Perf in Lewisville and see what Andy sells and pick his brain. Many customers have replaced their CAI's with his, including recently a Cold Air Inductions unit. Then, make your decision. It is good to have choices.

Mine is great. Kind of wish I had the black one (it wasnt out when I got mine)

Mine didnt fit quite right the first time (not a common problem) and they sent me another one ASAP...great customer service.

After weeks of research I went with CAI and love it! I also waited the extra time to get the black one and it looks good on my black SS.

couldn't be happier! It does make the car sound louder @ WOT. That alone is worth it! No more drone, but more lovely sound when you're pushing the car!

The CAI Inc system is by far our best selling intake system for to 5th generation Camaro SS, and with good reason. Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions.

You can save a TON of money and get a Volant. That's what i did. I see you are in Plano. I won't have my car for about a month if you want to come put mine on your car to try it out.
