Probably the most asked question on the board...idk which are the cheapest out there but Roto-Fab and Cold Air Inductions are the most popular and are going to be the majority of the answers you get. Also check out Jannetty's test thread.

The best bang for your buck intake is the Volant. $137 shipped compared to all the others that start at $340.
That's what i got.

You should'nt have asked that question.

Personnaly I went for G5CR but there are some critics about the missing heat sheild. I'll see into that later when it will be installed, I don't like the idea closing such a big filter in a small box!!!!!

Because a big engine bay filled with HOT air, going straight into your intake is so much better?

For the OP.

There really are eleventybillion threads on this.

These kinds of threads tend to turn into a survey of what the people on the forum at the moment have on their car. Here is a good article from our blog that discusses the pros/cons of many of the intake systems available for these cars. It should provide you with enough information to make an educated decision about which system is best for your application. Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions.

We would be happy to answer any questions you have. There are many individuals and reputable shops that have dyno tested our intake, please take the time to research many of them when making your decision.
We offer many options-dry or oil filter, custom air box colors, hose color choices as well as black, carbon fiber finish or polished stainless steel inlet elbow.

You should take a look at our LSR intake.Dyno proven to add a remarkable 42hp and 48ftlbs to the rear wheels during mid-range rpms. During peak power we saw a remarkable 36hp and 39 ftlbs of torque at higher rpm!

At this point in the conversation I feel I should insert this quote from our blog concerning selecting an air intake.

I based my decision on this research and chose the Halltech.

CAI is the acronym for Cold Air Intake.
A CAI replaces the stock air intake system on your car.
Generally, an aftermarket CAI is purchased for
  • More power
  • more aggressive sound
  • modified appearance
  • increased fuel economy

The first picture is the Camaro engine compartment with a stock intake and the second is a similar engine compartment with a Roto-fab CAI.

OK this is absurd. You may have a decent CAI but why post such total nonsense? You are losing respect here by posting such sheet.

People would pay $750+ if a CAI could add +42HP..that is like upgrading to a new CAM range...lol
