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.

I have the CAI but a recording won't help. I hardly ever hear it. Occasionally I'll hear the suction whoosh, but its rare. Under hard acceleration there's a low moan, but nothing you could discern because of the muffler delete.
