Cold air intake

okay, there have been several posts from companies doing dyno runs and quater mile runs. Some of them are posting results with their cold air intakes and other mods. The question is.... Do any of these companies have products ready to sell? With only 1500+/- of these cars this year I have a feeling that the big aftermarket players may be slow to react with available products. What is actually available right now?

aFe has an intake available right now, ready to ship immediately. You are correct, once new models come out, some aftermarket companies do struggle with getting products out, but that's not true with aFe. The reason why they're products are pushed out so quickly, is because everything is done in house at their facility in Southern California. Filters are made in house, intake tubes are made in house, all the rubber parts, plastic parts, molds, and all the R&D, shipping, manufacturing in any way, is all done in house, and all done in the USA

Not only do they push out an item as quickly as possible to be the first on the market, but they produce an intake with proven power! You'll be seeing about 10HP and 12ftlbs of torque added to your Camaro, but not only that, you'll see a 1-2MPG gain as well, so essentially, this kit will eventually pay itself off!

Do you by chance have any installed photos on a ZL1? Also does your kit require any tuning? It is my understanding that the LSA's are very sensitive to any changes in intake.

Whoops... My fault guys, didn't see this was the ZL-1 section, guess I should have looked before I posted. With that said, I've sent AFE in inquiry about it to get a test vehicle in and do some testing on it.

Would any be interested in being a test vehicle? You have to be located in Southern California of course, where aFe is located - PM me for more details if you like!

Were you on the 405 at la tijera on Wednesday around 5:00? I saw a red Zl1.
