Exclamation Thinking about Installing Cold Air Intake

I am researching heat shield and shielded box cold air intake systems. Cold Air Inductions or Roto-fab have their models that work well with my setup. My camaro has about 1,400 miles and check my sig for other details. I have not been able to see any videos of how either of them sound in-car or out. Obviously, sound plays a part in my decision.

Can anyone that has either of these systems (or even other competitors) turn their video recorder on their iPhone on when they go for a drive and post the video on here? It would only take a few mins of work but I'm sure other people would appreciate the help too.

Intakes are intakes. Buy which ever one you like the way it looks. I personally have a roto fab it's great and so are all the other brands. I don't think a video clips are going to help you because they will show case everybody's exhaust mods.

You can't go wrong with either system. Let me know if you have any questions on them.

Best regards,

Well not really - it depends on what you're after. The theory is pretty much the same on all of them, but some look and sound better than others. I can say that the CAI intake is easy to install, looks fabulous, and adds a nice growl to the engine when you put your foot in it. Combined with the Apex scoop, it's awesome sounding and improves responsiveness to the whole driving experience.

No, that's cool... I was just speaking of what I "know", which is CAI.

Thanks for your order. Be sure to let us know what you think once it is installed.

Go with a rotofab or Haltech, they use plastic tubes and the others use metal tubes. They raise IAt's higher than the others and cool off much slower.
