Makes you wonder why the '14 Z/28 gets a CAI from factory.

Does this cold air intake require a Tune?

My guess it's because the car is not likely to be many owner's DD and therefore some performance enhancements can be added without having to account for impact they might have on day to day drivability.

....stick to your Ford Lightning....thank you very much for participating on C5....

Part of the reason a CAI was not installed from the factory, is because the drive by noise emission requirements would have been over the DB level with the extra supercharger noise thrown into the mix. The Z/28 does not have to worry about supercharger whine.

...I agree, the restricted air intake port on the factory air cleaner assembly plus the baffling noise reduction orrifice reduces engine noise/super charger whine to pass drive by noise regulations.

I bought mine at that price from them. Best deal around.

If they have it in stock they ship fast. I was shocked how quickly I received mine but mine was basic black. My hood is rarely up so color was not a deal for me.

No tune means just install and see the HP increase. (A conservative 20 BHP) The CAI was designed to not cause issues with air fuel or driveability. You can tune but if you don't the car will run fine, see an increase in HP and retain the warranty. Best "bang for the buck" mod on the ZL1.

Painted finished will take longer as they are painted to order. We will update you via email as soon as we have any info for you.

Thanks for the business and support guys! I truly appreciate it!
