V6 2013 Camaro LFX Air Intake

Which air intake is best for a 2013 v6 camaro with LFX engine?

Does it need a "spacer", I don't know the exact term, but I've heard of it.

None of them need "a spacer"... From the ones you listed... buy the Cold Air Inductions intake

Some of us are waiting to see if the Z/28 intake will be offered by GMPP or just as parts we can buy.

From the ones you listed, CAI Hands down! Roto-Fab and Airaid are some other good ones to consider. Feel free to call, PM or email me with questions or pricing.

Best regards,

It most likely won't work on a v6, or will require extensive modification... Probably expensive too.

Does a throttle body will be useful with any of these air intakes, like increase in horsepower, torque, or even fuel efficiency?

If it is helpful, which brand's good?

I bought the Cold Air Inductions kit and had it installed at MRT today. It looks great and they said the kit was very well designed compared to other installs they've done.

I currently have the K&N intake on my LFX. Works fine, I felt an increase, a lot of people like the cold air inductions one. I like it too, but I didn't know about it before I bought my K&N

Approx how much hp does CAI increases? K&N, supposedly, increases around 15 hp. Any dyno tests?
