does a CAI help with tire chirps

Maybe a silly question but i wanted to no. And if so are certain brands better for it than others(like more power at lower rpms than others)? Just curious

Check out the Jannetty Racing CAI testing thread, but this is the LINK to the google doc with all the information.

CAI won't help with tire chirp, that's a suspension thing. Honestly, at the end of the day what CAI people go with is a personal choice thing.

good point. A CAI will increase tire chirps. Which from a suspension/axle stand point; is bad. From a fun stand point; its really good

Ok i'll probably get laughed at for this question but here goes...... I thought Tht adding more hp and more torque would help with that or does a CAI add em at too high of a rpm to help chirp the tires, I honestly dnt no

Mk. Back to my question. Do you want MORE or LESS tire chirp?

this doesnt make much sense to me, usually you get tire chirps with automatics with shift kits, in a manual it is all how you drive it. CAI will add power from idle to redline, hp and torque

I have a automatic, and just wanted to no if a CAI would help add torque from a stand still

Here's mine when I had just a CAI (Fastlane Pipeline) a cat-back (Borla Touring) and an A6 tranny tune (firmed up the shifts).

Listen for the 1-2 shift.

If you add more power it will increase the likelihood of extra tire spin when shifting provided the transmission or traction control doesn't limit it from getting to the abck tires. The stock Pirelli's are very forgiving for tire chips as they don't make as much noise and many other tire compounds. The abrupt shift in the transmission is good for the transmission and will extend it's life but is harder on the joints and differential. So in short, more power with the CAI will give you a better chirp, but a harder trans shift and louder tires will give you a bark.

As mentioned - anything that adds power/torque will increase the likelyhood of getting a "chirp" on the shifts.

With the L99 A6 a tranny tune will greatly improve the "chirp" possibilities due to a reduction in torque management, increase in torque, along with faster/chrisper shifts.

Padre
padre you realize a CAI and a cat back plus a tune on a A6 is going to be noticeably different from just a CAI on a stock car.

Best mod to increase "tire chirps": Crappy tires.
