Are you serious? You see nothing wrong with a cai at a cost of 5 bills? I'm sorry, but that is ridiculous.

I love the idea of grabbing cold air from the front, but I worry that the heat from the radiator will rise up and wind up supplying part of the air to that CAI.

And $500 is a bit steep. I would say $300 would be a fair price.

Does this set up utilize the "mail slot" on the hood for a "forced air" type of flow?

I'm not saying its right. but I am saying that no one should be suprised at the prices of the exhaust/intakes/mufflers/etc for this car. its a brand new car, and aftermarket manufacturers are going to capitalize on the fact that people will pay that amount to have these products. look back at the 4th gens, how much was a CAI when they first came out? $300.00+? its 7 years later, prices go up with inflation until it comes to a point where someone else is making the same/better product for less.

notice how all the CAI's are netting the same power? and notice how they are all priced similarly? I really wish that one reputable company (preferably NEP cus I like their setup) would offer the intake at $350.00 or less. they'd sell like hotcakes and force their competition to lower their prices as well.
but, its just like buying the car itself, right now, you cant get the car under MSRP (without GMS discounts and such), when the 2011 model comes out, 2010 models will be priced lower. same goes for the competition, the mustang and chally (save for the GT500 and SRT-8) are all priced competitively. some people think 33k is too much for this car and spent a little less for a mustang GT, some wanted "better looks" and bought a challenger for more.
if you want a CAI but dont want to spend the money for it, wait a year or so.

Do I like the fact that EVERYTHING is overpriced for this car? some companies are asking 100k for a new motor/trans and a paint job (not including purchase price of the car). some are asking 500 bones for a CAI. I dont like it, and I wont pay that much for it. I'll do what I have done in the past when I couldnt get the intake I wanted for the price I felt was reasonable. I made my own from c/f or plastics.


*steps off soapbox*



sorry for the rant. I do think its too much, but I can understand the companies pricing their products the way they do. just like any company selling something, the price will fluctuate with time. but if you dont want to pay the price they are asking, then dont buy the product.

the heat from the radiator isnt enough to affect it. and unless the air is flowing backwards from the engine out the front of the radiator, its not going to pick up any hot air thru the CAI.

no for the mail slot, and not really for the forced air. there might be a slight forced bit of air, but not enough to register.

the inlet on the intake is mounted right on top/in front of the radiator and pulls air from the grille area.

Thank you.

So what is your opinion on this intake relative to other aftermarket intakes on where it is getting its air or better stated the positioning of the inlet and amount of air it is getting?

I would love to see the readings taken from the R & D, showing the air temperature entering at different speeds and times. It may work fine, I am just wondering what the exact numbers are. Is it possible for the company selling these to post those temperatures?

the "cool factor" of this intake is unbeatable. out of all the aftermarket intakes, I like this one the best. as for the amount of air its getting vs other intakes, I honestly dont know.

me too. as for them posting the temps, thats tricky as most of these companies are located in different areas of the country. tho im sure you could run a temp sensor right in front of the intake on the NEP, and maybe put one in the filter area of the other CAI's. but I doubt they'd go thru the trouble as the difference more than likely wont be much.

Sorry but the rough welds look like someone did this in a shop class. Is there a box that goes in front of the radiator, like the SLP CAI for the 4th gens? It might look OK with the welds smoothed out...but shouldn't cost extra!!

Personally, I think they've designed a great intake, but there's things that are deal breakers for me. 1:it's metal...say what you like but if you're not providing temperature test data between plastic and metal intakes, then your post is an opinion just like mine. 2:The welds make the intake look "unfinished".

I agree with the above statements that 500 bucks for a CAI is a bit steep. And for those who think that the price isnt too high... then buy it, by all means.

This is what business is all about, making a product that consumers want, engineering a product that works, balancing manufacturing costs and the items price efficiently. Im all for companies making money, especially in todays economy. Here's the big BUT...I just dont see myself getting off my wallet to the tune of 500 for a CAI. If New Era wants to post up some engineering data to support the price tag, I'd love to see the info. But that's up to them, im sure they want to be careful not to spill their beans.

I can not believe this was just stated...And I am truly offended, but...

I guess the pics don't do it justice, because I guarrantee you will not find better welds anywhere. I guess we will just have to wait for customers to get these so they can post what they think once they have one in hand and on their car to make a true statement. I believe we built the best CAI/Ram Air intake for the new Camaro, which is why we didn't spare any expense, which is why it is pricey. We could have just built the same side style intake everyone else is doing, but I wanted us to build something unique, so why are people saying to others don't buy it? There is nothing wrong with it, so why tell someone else not to buy it? We are not jacking up the price, it is priced accordingly for what kind of product you are getting. And when you open the box, you will realize that you have a $500 CAI/Ram Air kit.

As long as they are quality welds I like the look of it. It shows off man made craftsmanship, not some machine made run of the mill part. Have you ever seen Hogan race intake manifolds? There on just about every top performing Turbo race engine and they also keep their welds visible. It looks HOT, and very “Race” oriented, like a custom one off piece.

Bro its a quailty piece for sure, but the numbers imo dont justify $200 over any other intake. Same with the vararam if its in the $500 range forgedaboutit. I havent seen much if any hp difference between this and any other CAI.

Other than that, the welds look good, no doubt about it. And its a very nice looking piece. But the average joe isnt gonna drop $500 for an intake in this economy on a car they probably already made sacrifices to buy.

If it dynoed a solid 10-15hp more than any side style CAI it might be worth it.
