Intake for V6 Auto

I have a stock 2LT and need to upgrade my air intake. I want to boost the hp as much as posible. I looked into Injen, K&N, and CAI. Right now I am looking at CAI both for the power and the look. Does anyone have any ideas that could help me out?

Correct, if between 2010-2012 Vararam is a good less expensive option as well. Aesthetically will have to figure out what to do with the missing intake space.

I'm in the same situation as you.

I'm going to see if the '14 Z/28 intake can be made to fit.

Take a look at the thread below. I wrote it to help people understand the pros and cons of the types of intakes available for these cars. If you have any questions afterwards feel free t hit me up.

I was looking at the same three, but the budget is more like for cheap beer...I found the looks of the Roto-FAB quite pleasing after CAI and since MODBargains has them on sale, I ordered the white powder coated box this past Friday. I just hope the numbers on the spreadsheet in the earlier post for Roto-FAB are a glitch.

BTW, why is only one side of the V attached to a catch can? Is the other side valve cover negative pressure by default?
