CAI and NPP

I have been searching and can't seem to decide currently leaning towards the CAI intake but would like to know if any one is running this intake with the npp exhaust and how you like it if there's a difference in exhaust tone or not or what you are running with this exhaust

I have both and installed my CAI last week, and I noticed a deeper tone with my exhaust! And if you havent already remove the fuse that controls the butterfly valves in the exhaust.. it will make your exhaust 10x better

Theres a fuse block inside the trunk passenger side (behind carpet) look for the one that says "exhaust flap" and pull..

Just about any intake system will give you the sound you are looking for. The CAI system is a very nice system and is preferred by most of the C5 community. We also have a gift car promo on that system. Feel free to call, PM or email me any time with questions.

Best regards,

My CAI intake that I ordered from Apex Chase will be here tomorrow afternoon according to UPS. I'll post back with results after it's installed to give you my opinion on the difference I notice right away.
