Air raid CAI vs others

I am looking for a CAI for my 2011 camaro SS. One I am currently looking at is a oil filtered air raid CAI. What are some opinions and reviews on that. What are some good competitors to it? Oil or dry?

The Airaid is a great cost effective and good performing intake system. We sell a ton of them locally and use them on our own cars. Roto-Fab and CAI are also great systems.

Please feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions or pricing.

Best regards,

Tyler

AirAid is respectable. I have it, and I'm completely satisfied. Looks kinda funky, but I got used to it. AirAid is an oiled filter.

Airaid offers bot an oiled filter and a non oiled filter. I prefer and recommend the oiled filter.

Stay a way from the airaid intake. I threw mine in the trash instead of selling it.

I'm running an airaid no complains here. And at the track it doesn't matter what brand of intake you have 2-4hp difference on 4000lbs you do the math.

airaid cai works great

the airaid cai works great

it will increase the horse power by about 6hp

it will work on a full stock setup well, the air runs thru a venturi directed at the MAF.

other intakes are just a fat tube, that will make your car go to the lean side of air/fuel ratio

thats my opinion

I have had my Airaid on my 2006 Nissan Frontier NISMO truck for 7 years. Not one issue. So I did not hesitate to add one to my 2011 SS/RS LS3 a year and a half ago. No issues ..I like the fact that it uses the factory snorkel and brings cold air from the outside to the filter..

Click on my link below to see picks of it.

I like the ADM Race or Street setup, very adaptable as setups change as well!

And what's your "opinion" based on? What is this "venturi affect" you speak of? The Airaid is just a tube and filter that goes into a box. Most of the no tune CAI's work extremely well with the stock tune and WILL NOT lean your AF raito. This is a proven fact by countless independent sources. You'll only lean out your AF if you're bypassing air past the MAF without reading it or outflowing the margin of correction built into the PCM.

Also, maf placement and depth is important in how the fuel trims will run. The further away from the tb, usually the less reversion you have and it will be more accurate for sure. That's why I like the adm, it puts the maf in the airbox itself, so you get the most accurate reading of what the iat's are.

+1^^ ADM is a top of the line CAI that performs as well as ANY CAI out there AND it looks good.
You can't beat the quality and the price for what you get!

All and all everyones gonna say there set ups the best. Look at the jre intake test the airaid runs with best and its a lil cheaper than other cai's. Look around pick something you like and enjoy. Not all intakes are created equal but the hp differences aren't something to stress over in our heavy chevys.

I started with the Airaid and now have the Black CAI. I like the looks of the CAI better, and it allowed me to use the Rotofab radiator cover which I like. Personally, I liked the sound of the Airaid better than the CAI--seemed more throaty, but the CAI has a cover which allows me to spray the engine at the carwash without worrying about covering the filter element like the Airaid. Performance wise I don't notice any butt dyno difference, except for the possibility the better sound of the Airaid influenced the butt dyno slightly in its favor. I still have the Airaid if anyone is interested--make me an offer. LOL
