This sound interesting. My wife and I participate in AutoX up in Corpus but I have looking to do something more like a road course. Is this what you'll be doing? What kinda of high speeds we talking about? As far as tech is concerned my stock tires are getting pretty near replacement. What are the minimum requirements on tires? Is there any race equipment required other than a helmet and proper attire? I appreciate any info or links to the event you may be able to provide. Also is this an SCCA event? We are members that is why I ask. Thx.

Heres a helpful link http://rgvpca.org/
The speed depends on the set up of the track. Me my self i can hit about 130 mph before i have to take a sharp curve.on the tires, i have use some stock tires almost worn out and i will finished them there in a couple of runs, before i change to another pair. But if you take some decent good tires u can run all day and still go back home with them. On equipment, i recomend a torq wrench to check your lug nuts after each session, and a low profile jack. For sure a DOT aproved helment. If you cant provide one we usually have lenders. We can always lend you our equipment or anything else you would need. What i do is set my eyes on those shelby / mustangs and try to catch up to him and once you are on their a$$ they have to give you the forcefull signal to pass them if not they get a black flag for been too slow.

Ahh some thing i forgot to mention was no nitrous kits. You can have super chargers and turbos. Floor matts , subs and speaker boxes have to come out and any other loose items. Cameras are allowed if they are fixed or have a good suction cup. For example yes on (go_pro cameras). No passengers are allowed only during lunch during an event called Taste of the Track. Thats controlled by a pace car and speeds of 65miles, some of us go faster

Thanks! I can't wait to hear it once I break in the car a little more and get a CAI and headers.

I still think you should look at the Rotofab more, great looking (would go nicely with your car), especially if you powder coat it black or a drak gray.

Does rotofab goes all they way down near the front tire ,(i mean the actual air filter where you can actually get true cold air rather than hot engine compartment air.)?? Does any body knows what i am talking about
I know carlos had one that wasnt named brand and it was around in the $200 bucks and that CAI did run all the way down almost near the front tire catching the ambient air.

Would it not be the same thing if you got the air scoop installed along with your CAI? I'm still unsure about which air intake to get. I'm still leaning towards C.A.I. with the powder coated finish.

I spoke to carlos he can get us his discounted price. Heres the cold air intake its a AEM.
Also for the bucks i think its a good price. I will put my hennessey CAI for sale.
Rotofab its good it has the box ontop of the air filter with the clear plastic ,with the insulated walls..
Now theres the Vararam cold air around in the $400 that one doesnt have the looks but it has the performance, that is almost a Ram Air kit.
Now look into what deflects the heat metal or plastic or if the Tube from the intake has a protective coat to deflect the heat..
I guess bottom line is what can we do to get cold air into our motors to perform better.

There's some testing done by Jannetty on this forum that might help yall decide. I went with the Cold Air Inductions CAI cause of the looks and got the air scoop to increase its performance. Looks good and easy installs.

+1 on the CAI. I have one my car and my wife's. Go with scoop and washer relaxation. She doesn't have that and I can 'feel' the difference between the two cars.

I think I'm going to go with the C.A.I. I found this great deal where they give you an ADM air scoop free for only 389 shipped. The C.A.I by itself is usually 399. I know it's pricey but from what others say on the forum and the Jannetty Dyno's, it seems like the right choice.
