Bill, great post. I also lovemy CAI.

Can you comment on the scoop some of your vendors crosssell with the CAI? I actually bought the combo but was afraid to install the scoop. Was worried about water coming in the intake.

i just got inside the house from installing my CAI, ran out of daylight so i didnt install the apex scoop yet. i took her down the road and she screams! whenever you are sitting still and you just give the gas pedal a quick press there is a puffing noise, is that normal?

Looks great! Thanks for choosing Cold Air Inductions Inc.! Yes, as long as all your connections are tight you are just hearing the increased movement of air, that is typical on many CAI's.

I am very happy with the CAI the butt dyno is awesome the sound it makes at WOT is amazing. Even with the trouble i had installing it, it is well worth the time.

does your CAI make a sound at WOT? the only thing that i hear is that it makes my exhaust sound a little louder and meaner

The CAI Inc intake systems are ceramic coated inside and out to prevent heat soak. The air box is also insulated. You can see in these thermal images of one of their prototype air boxes that while the outside of the intake appears hot as it reflects heat the inside stays cool. IAT temps reflect that as well.

Great write up and explanation about your CAI's. I know that I have 2 of your systems, one on my Camaro and one on my wifes Tahoe and I love them both.

For anyone on the fence about getting an intake for their vehicle, especially the Camaro, these guys are the way to go. Not only does it rank as one of the highest if not the highest on almost every test or poll it is a part of, but these guys provide great customer service and make a high quality product that does not cut any corners in terms of quality or design. I have met them at the last Camaro Fest and was very impressed with their knowledge, professionalism, and their overall commitment to the Camaro and this Forum and its' members. If you want the best CAI you can get for your Camaro, and want to turn some heads when the hood is popped, go with Cold Air Inductions Inc. Thats my .02 cents.

I've bought other cold air intakes in the past, but Cold Air Induction intake is by far the best one I have ever owned.

I'm excited to finally be getting my CAI. I don't know if I should name the vendor, but last night, I bought the CAI in black, with race scoop and Rotofab washer bottle as a kit for $489. I'm stoked that my car is finally coming together. I've been spending obscene amounts of money on it lately. :\

Definitely. I also got a free skip-shift eliminator with it. I have way too many projects planned, but now they're going to have to wait until winter weather is over. :(
