CAI options

Hi fellas have a brand new 13 6speed mt camaro. its about that time to start the mods.. quite frustrated that there is not a big selections of mods headers wise for the lfx... how ever i plan on ordering my intake today.. my question is....

theres so many intakes some claim 11hp increase others claim like 18... ive been looking at the Phastek X5 Cold Air Intake for $319 doesnt have a listed increase..

the other was the Injen Power-Flow Short Ram Cold Air Intake #PF7013P for 319...
also have looked at the k&n for about the same price

can anyone give any input on whether brand/price is going to affect performance?? or is it just personal preference?

i would get a catback but i have gotten a Muffler Delete so that the sound holds me over.( its sounds like a tuner car at high rpms, which i love cause im a fan of imports but until there is 2013 bbk LT headers i most likely wont be touching the exhaust.

thanks fellas

It's not that there isn't a "big selection" of headers for the LFX. There are, and never will be ANY headers for the LFX. It just isn't an option.

Go with a CAI brand intake.

CAI Inc is probably the most popular system around here. It produces solid gains, looks great, and sounds great. Give the thread below a look. There is a lot of good info about air intake systems there.

THE Air Intake Thread

The LFX has integrated exhaust manifolds. They are literally part of the block so there will never be any options for headers. You can get goo results with high flow cats though.

The Roto-Fab is a good system. Definitely has a lot of customizable options. I would lean that direction over either of the others.
