I went with the K&N simply because it fit within my budget. How's that for an honest answer. Nice deeper growl when getting on it, and my MPGs have increased by at least 2 MPG.

I love my BBK. Whatever brand you choose I second the recommendation for Apex as your provider; they're awesome.

The truth is without a tune you are not going to see much gain. We have only offered our kit (LSR) with a tune, but we are working on an insert so you can run without tuning or add a tune later. The problem is if these cars see much of an increase in airflow they will generally pop a code (Check engine light). If you increase the airflow enough to make much more power you have to increase the fuel or you will have a lean condition. This is why with our kit you have to tune. We increase the size of the mass air housing and the inlet tube combined with a free flowing air filter and we have seen around 40hp, 45ft lbs of torque with a tune. You will feel it. As for offering an insert, you are not going to see any huge gains with the insert. But, if you are going to keep the car and you are worried about tuning and how it will effect the warranty on your car the kit with an insert might be the way to go as later on you can remove it, tune it and see some real performance gains. The best CAI subject will never be put to bed, but maybe this will help some of you guys on the fence about this mod. Good luck and happy modding..

From personal exp airraid is by far the worst . No increase on the dyno with it and it gave mixed results switched to AEM which most muscle car guys stay clear of because it's a "tuner" brand but had the biggest pick up even over the K&N

CAI Inc. They won the last comparison I saw from Ted Jannetty. It also looks great!

PLEASE LIST A REASON.
You need to add the CAI Inc. CAI to the poll results, I have one and love it. It is probably where you got most of the "other" votes from. From what I understand and from the last poll I saw it was by far the most popular.

CAI, Roto, and VR are the three mentioned the most and for good reason. Their gains are consistent. The only drawl back for me with VR was tilting back the radiator. CAI and Roto both are sealed from the engine bay heat. I highly recommend an intake that has some form of seal to close off from the bay.

The cost seems "high", but the intake really comes alive and the bang for your buck really comes when you get a tune done... then add headers and exhaust and the intakes effectiveness is improved drastically.



You read wrong...if this was the case then more than half of the members would not have intake systems. 10-14 hp gains on a stock engine without a tune is great for intake on a stock engine with no other mods. Something CAI, VR, ROTO, all do routinely and have proven in independent testing over stock.

What you may have read is that some webpages have a "GMPP performance intake" which is nothing more than a dress up kit for the exterior of the intake.

Cold Air Inductions by farrrrr! Worth every bit of penny spent on it. Better MPG, great HP, improved exhaust note, and love the vaccum like sound when you give it some gas. I heard the ADM Performance Scoop even brings it to a further level. Thinking about getting the scoop also, just curious on what HP that added to the standalone CAI intake....

And here I thought I had decided on the Halltech yellow jacket. Does no one have anything nice to say about the Halltech? I thought it outperformed the CAI in the last Jannety test. Equal to the CAI in HP gain but picked up more torque.

Anyone with first hand experience with both?

Halltech also makes approx 10 hp. Increased about 2 miles per gallon after about a month of checking. I love it.

3 steps to awesomeness:

  1. Install the CAI Inc. system
  2. Do the washer bottle relocate
  3. Install race scoop
