Airaid Cold Air Intake!!!

Finally we are able to release this info. We have been working exclusively with Airaid for the last few months developing a cold air intake specific for the ZL1.

We cannot release our dyno numbers, you will have to wait for GM High Tech Magazine to release these (coming to the shop tomorrow to test our first three performance packs) but I can tell you this thing makes HUGE HP/TQ. Airaid may be able to provide you with gains and dyno sheets

These intake systems feature Airaid's new large, one-piece, rotational-molded air box and totally redesigned air intake tube. These new one-piece air boxes house Airaid's exclusive air filter which, when combined with the CAD-designed intake tube, provides improved horsepower, torque, and MPG. All MXP series intake systems include all of the necessary hardware and easy-to-follow instructions for a quick and hassle-free installation.

Massive Tubing
HUGE Gains in horsepower and improved throttle response
Feeds air directly to the high performance, premium filter
Allows only cool, outside air to the intake
Lifetime filter is washable and reusable
Simple to install with just basic hand tools
System is computer designed for a perfect fit

These will be IN STOCK within 1 week and we will be the FIRST to have them. They are available on our website now.

no air leaks in through the hole for the washer fluid fill?
Is there some kind of gasket there?

It is a pretty tight seal and not enough airflow will escape through the 'sealed box' enclosure to defeat it's purpose. Airaid has had this box out since the first SS with zero issues.

Yes. We feel any intake worth putting on will require a tune. Airflow drastically increases with this setup

Thanks. It is hard to see in the picture, but the box appears to be more of a "bucket" compared to others. Where does it pull air from with the hood closed? It doesn't look like it is open to the front.

I think it may be similar to their intake for the SS. I wondered the same thing, so I went to their website and looked at the SS intake.

What is the inside diameter of the intake tubing?

This box is the same as the SS and uses the factory air scoop. Here is a picture of an SS kit that is the same

At which part? It is over 4" the entire run with some velocity transitions. I can state that this intake is one of the best performing we have seen for the ZL1 to date and we work with Airaid because of their amazing quality and R&D process

Both between the TB and air filter as well as the front inlet to the air box. I would think the front inlet of the filter box should also be larger than the normal SS box to maintain high RPM supercharged airflow if someone were to combine this with other mods (102TB, porting, cam, exhaust) to improve airflow through the engine.

This airbox will support well over 85lb/min before it becomes a restriction. This is something that Airaid took into consideration when developing the kit

When we get the next one in, I can take measurements. The opening at the filter is much larger

Nice. Thanks. I'll be watching this as I'm knee deep in upgrades right now and might try out some different CAIs to see what works best with high flow.

We can guarantee the design of this intake is the best out there in terms of fit and finish, airflow and stock style. Using a metal intake will simply attract heat and these things run hot enough.

Here are the dyno sheets from my Airaid install and tune on my ZL1, done by IPF tuning. These guys and this product are awesome.

I can't comment on this kit, however, I can on another Air Raid system, and it is absolutely top notch. In addition - it seems like their support is really second to none.

My dad purchase a CAI box for his truck several years ago before AR offered a complete system with the TB-to-box tube to replace the OEM pinched/muffled piece. We just ordered that smoothed AR tube and even received a CARB-approval sticker to add so everything is completely legal (important because we live in the Republic of California).

Anyways - I just wanted to throw in how great I think the product and support are. Air Raid will definately be at the top of my CAI list in the future!

Thanks for the kind words. This is exactly why we select Airaid for our builds, project cars and asked them to make this kit for us/with us. Service and product is second to none

I thought I should say something For example: just the attention to detail on the rubber couplers, and how they will use a completely encapsulated clamp for the TB so the elbow doesn't shake off is just one example of the engineering quality on my dad's particular kit. Considering it's a truck, and goes off-road, it gives me confidence that thing isn't going anywhere when the going gets tough. Getting that CARB-label, after the fact, is just icing on the cake.

Air Raid = WIN

Is there a way to avoid tapping the side for the stock clean air side oil trap?

Once the hood is closed, where is the intake air coming into the air box? I can't see the bottom of the air box to see if there is a scoop or opening.
