Which CAI would you go with?

What CAI would you go with? If you choose other, what one would you suggest? (Ones to wait for ect) Also does anyone have a chart on HP increases on these for the LFX? I haven't been able to find one.

I'm leaning towards a CAI but I'm trying to justify the extra cost!

Thanks!

Take a look at these testimonials: http://www.coldairinductions.com/testimonials

Also there are already a few polls out there like this with many manufacturers listed, pretty sure we are voted top choice for nearly all of them, pretty sure all of them actually.

Let me know if you have any questions about our products, I would be happy to help!

CAI, all the reading I have done and its been a lot (this forum and across the web) CAI seems to be the best. I just ordered mine today from Apex same price as else where but free shipping.

Always been on the fence between Vararam and CAI but I'm choosing CAI, once I get the cash!

I got the CAI, Inc. system and the MRT V2 at the same time - saved money that way AND... I believe they offer the best product.

2012 ?

PM'd NickJRE to see if the CAI cold air fits a 2012 V6. Waiting on reply.
I know it's posted in this forum, but site states 2010, 2011 and 2013 Camaro V6. Will the CAI fit a 2012 V6? No love for 2012, lol.

If so, I'm ordering (free shipping...woot)

If you order through one of the venders that frequent this forum, they'll make sure you get the right one - they're real good like that.

Go to the Sponsor's Classifieds Marketplace area and click on "V6 Bolt-Ons & Tunes Intake, exhaust, tunes, other bolt-ons for V6 Camaros". All the venders provide info there.

Normally I would be all for the Vararam but it seems the coolest feature they have to offer, the over the radiator design, may not be offered on our LFX's. At this point I'd tell anyone wanting to purchase now or very soon to get a CAI.

VR followed the same footsteps with the 2010-11 model with being late, inability to update, and so on. I'm in no hurry to buy at the moment so I'll see what they have to offer before commiting to anything else.

I have the CAI and ordered from APEX. I have to say their customer service is A+. kept me informed, worked with CAI to drop ship it direct to me , given they were backed up with orders. Customer Communication is no. 1 priority and these folks do it right

I've got parts! My CAI/washer bottle relocation kit/scoop arrived today from Apex. The only problem was that my delivery person looked nothing like the woman in Chase's pictures. Guess I'll have to order something else from them and hope she has the time to drop it by the house (a man can dream, right?).

I wish it wasn't 110 outside here today. The install is going to suck.

We maintain a 30-45 day supply of CAI Inc systems in stock but occasionally we get hit with an unexpected rush that can compromise that. I am very glad to hear that you had a great experience despite the inconvenience. Thank you for your business.

I can arrange for Amanda to drop off your next order, but it definitely will not be for free like that order was.
