Winter is a great time to install mods, you just can't enjoy them right away!

It's only a great time if you have a garage.

Highly doubt that. However I am looking at a house on three acres that has a covered parking area that I might turn into a garage, if I get it. :P

In other news, my CAI cold air intake came today. Looks like really nice stuff. Can't wait for a break in the rain.

Well there you go, good luck with that!

Awesome!! Glad to here that you got it, make sure to take some pictures once you install it! Did you get the "Near Chrome" or the "Textured Black" finish?

Black, definitely. I can't see the chrome look working well with my matte-black-on-green motif.

Just dropped off my TSP headers yesterday to be ceramic coated satin black as well. Gonna be a sexy engine bay.

Put on my CAI Inc goodies today...the sound change from the engine inside the car alone is worth the price. All the other stuff is just extra, more power...improved response...mpg increase...looks amazing.

Got my CAI, Rotofab w/w bottle, and race scoop installed today. HOLY SHIT. That CAI lid was a PITA. :\ I accidentally put some minor scrapes in the surface as the screwdriver slipped while trying to get that front screw to grab. :( Oh well, can't hardly notice. I did spend what felt like an hour trying to get it on though. Shifted the box several times and eventually it went in.

Looks sexy as hell, the car feels a lot more lively, and the noise at WOT kind of surprised me. I don't have mufflers though, so it probably masks some of the audio improvement the CAI added.

My car has a "strong" MAF sensor already from the factory. I checked before I did the work in case I needed to order one. Thanks CAI inc, for the great product. I can't wait to see what happens to this beast once I open her throat up later on with those headers.

I think a lot of folks do this. I was warned by another camaro owner and took precautions.

Kinda wished I'd been more careful, but it was getting dark and freezing out. Those quarter-turn screws are nice, but I wish they were hex nuts or maybe even thumb screws. That would prevent the damages people are reporting. I can see why it's easily done with this setup. That lid fits SNUG!

it happened to me on my CAI too, getting the lid attached took longer than everything else put together. i have a small dummy mark on my lid from the screwdriver slipping :banghead:

Getting ready to order. There are a few cars out there that have had their's painted. I really like the way a fellow member has her's painted gloss black. Any cons in getting the product painted? Thanks in advance.

Not that I can see as long as it is professionally done (I would reccomend powder coating it as that is what we do). It will already be ceramic coated, which is where the thermal protection comes in. If you do know for a fact that you are having it custom finished make sure to order the "Near Chrome" option because the black has a textured finish. There are a few companies floating around this forum that specifically offer these services for our line of CAI's. Do some hunting around and I am sure you will find them!

Thanks for the feedback!

I ended up ordering the black, since my engine bay is red and black. I guess I shouldn't worry about getting it painted right now, as I have a long mod list. Appreciate the feedback and looking forward to getting the CAI in a few days.

Makes sense, the black looks great IMO. Let us know when you get it, we would love to get some feedback and see some pics! I am sure you will really enjoy the mod, and after seeing it installed you will forget all about painting it!
