So keeping it sealed off will keep the air temps a little cooler making the air more dense which will increase the volume of air moved through the filter delivering more to the motor.

the search function, like most forums....sucks. plus its worth posting his own thread because he might have more specific questions to follow up or might not want to bump some other thread b/c who knows where that will take us.

their design is just different. they use a cover, others use the hood as the cover.

CAI or Roto-Fab would be my top choices. Injen is pretty popular with the V6 guys too. Please feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions or pricing.

Best regards,

how does it suck!? You can search just this sub forum for the LLT motors only. There are sooooooo many threads about which cai is the best. I wont even post the results of me doing it because it is so obvious. Im not trying to be a dick, its just that instead of people answering the same answers every time and seeing this same question over and over every day is just annoying.

Im just saying that for a common question like this, this is what the search function was made for.
Also, there is this emoticon for a reason:


so the most popular brands these days are the CAI, the varamam, and to rotofab. Do not get what I got (which is the G5CR intake) because when my car gets hot, I can notice the difference in power because of how signifcant it is. Make sure you get something with a heat shield. Installs on there are probably the easiest of them all. So if you are new, try this at home. good luck buddy

I have to agree, best search function on a forum I've ever been on.

And I do have to point this out to the OP (Not trying to be rude just informing you). You have a 2012 so you have the LFX (12-?) while you posted in the LLT section (2010-11). While we will still give you an answer be sure to realize there is a difference in the intakes. A LLT one will not work on the LFX and vise versa.

I know it's a pretty bad picture but this will give you an idea what it looks like.

I think its a great picture, looks nice!

If you do a search on search, it brings back 500 hits.

Ok, back on topic now.

which provides you with many results. I would think that more results would better than just a few... anyway, you have a different engine than the LLT which is the sub forum you posted on. You want to go to the LFX section.

You have a 1lt model, which has no correlation to the LLT motor. In 2012, they redid the engine for the v6, which integrated the headers providing more hp. Because of this reason, you can not get headers at all.

I have the Injen CAI in the original post. It's well worth the money and provides awesome performance. Just make sure you order the hydro shield along with the intake to keep the filter dry.

I installed a spectre cold air intake on my manual 2011 about 2 hours ago and man can I feel a difference in 1st and second gear big time. Sounds nice to and it only cost me $150. I've had a couple big name brands in my past vehicles and paid well over 400 for them. I can tell you I feel like an idiot for dropping that cash for a brand name now.

I have the CAI on my 2013 2LT/RS and I like the sound and look much better than the K & N I had on my 2011 2LT/RS.
