CAI

I read post after post on here for days and finally went with the CAI. I am very happy with it. Got it on ebay for $375 including shipping.

Cold Air Intake ??

I got a spectre CAI on my 2010 installed myself. I don't know if there's a big difference in brands unless the design materials are different. And that I haven't did much research on $189 from auto anything on eBay


I'm mobile!

CAI for performance, form, and fit.
Looks good also.

I'm trying to be nice here, so don't take this the wrong way lol because I use this every single day when I research stuff on here.

https://www.google.com/#q=site:www.c...+air+intake+ss

Go into Google and type in "site: camaro5.com (then enter here whatever you're looking for)"

It gives you TONS of information on ANYTHING.

For example:

https://www.google.com/#q=site:www.c...exhaust+for+ss

"site:Camaro5.com loudest exhaust for ss" and VOILA!

Another example
https://www.google.com/#q=site:www.c...eaders&spell=1

"site:www.camaro5.com arh vs kooks headers"

and this actually works with any website that you regularly browse and need information on.

But to actually ANSWER your question.

Try this.
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...07#post1066607

Here is an actual spreadsheet with cold air intakes of every variety.
https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?...=1&output=html

I myself will be going with Cold Air Inductions strictly for the design and small HP gains over Rotofab.

But if you're looking to dress up your engine bay, then Rotofab hands down wins that battle w/o question.

The Cold Air Inductions may give a little more HP than the Roto Fab but the CAI brand is hideous looking with that big plexiglass top...They should seal off the bottom and fill it with water and put some goldfish in it, looks like a aquarium....

K&N has always been my choice for the Camaro but the Roto Fab I have heard has been great.

Thanks everyone for your time and advice. I think I might go with the roto-fab for the looks. Roto intake has to be better then no intake. Right ?

Rotofab is definitely an amazing intake to be honest. Cold Air Inductions, Rotofab and I believe Varam are amongst the favorites out there...

Cold Air Inductions has a slight edge over Rotofab according to the numbers, but you can't really go wrong with either or.

In all seriousness, 4 out of 10 Camaro owners have Rotofab, the other 4 out of 10 have Cold Air Inductions, and the remainder are just random cold air intakes.

Rotofab definitely has some sexy setups though.

Is it worth spending the extra $100 to do the washer fluid container relocate ? Does it help that much ?

Some interesting and accurate data here of multiple cai's- https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?...=1&output=html

Sometime later Jannetty Racing (the author) added a cold air scoop/washer bottle relocate that added a good deal more hp to the CAI brand.

Design and materials do make a difference, but any of the favs you've seen mentioned here will not disappoint. Let your wallet be your guide!

I personally like SPECTRE and INJEN

Spectre produces an amazing whistle when taking off, the Injen so far has given me a slightly at best rumbly sound...that's about it and only because it's a long-tube ..
