$40? Where did you get your pricing? After-market CAIs are at least $300. GMPP CAI would likely be at least that bbut likely more $$.

sorry dude, I was not getting excited. Just wondering where the price came from. $327 is a very nice price for a GMPP CAI. That's what I will get.

Before ordering from gmpartsdirect, check to see what shipping is going to cost. Shipping for that CAI is $68.80... you're really looking at $396.
gmpartsdirect always screws you on the shipping cost!!

Even with shipping, it's better than most dealerships will charge you which is full retail $450. If you go with gmpartsdirect, just be sure that you get exactly what you want because they will not refund the shipping/handling if you want to return an item.

You can also use the gmpartsdirect price (including shipping) to try to get your dealer to discount the price. My guess is that most will match it.

Man that is a nice looking CAI and made to should fit and look nice in our Cars unlike some after-market ones I have been reading about. The only question now if performance but I will buy it just for the fit and finish alone.

Whats the deal?

Anybody know why GM has not delivered this CAI part yet. What couldbe the delay? I may be wrong but isn't this a relatively easy upgrade/change?

What exactly could be the major drawbacks from using a CAI instead of the factory enclosed air take system?

Someone shead some light hear for everyone. Is it that they won;t be able to compete with the likes of ADM or Roto-Fab?

Looks like a shiney replacement for the stock box. Don't see how it could give any performance gains. If you're just wanting a cosmetically better looking CAI, then this is your ticket. If you're wanting some performance gains, get one of the others.

These are not made by GM, but by an aftermarket company to their specs. They have used Volant in the past, not sure on this one. This one does have a paper filter.

I have heard that GM has gone back and is redesigning the unit because of these very concerns. That is why it is taking longer. I don't know this for fact, but have seen it posted as such.

Thanks for the info, BackinBlack. I've been checking GMPartsDirect almost daily for the availability, admittedly mostly because of the looks, so it's good to hear they may up the performance specs. too.

Unless you just like the look of the stock airbox, why wouldn't you go for a aftermarket one? There are several that are the same price, IMO look better, give more performance gains, and won't void your warranty.

Again, they are supposedly redesigning this system to improve performance.
Some people like to put GM performance products on their car. I won't do it
at high price and less gain, but if they get it improved and I'm sure the look
of the unit will be nice I will be getting the GM unit.
My GM intake on my Solstice was a beautiful unit and delivered the power. Hopefully they can get the SS version to do the same.

Nope, still no word. I don't know what the problem is.
I really am puzzled at the lack of information on this intake.

This is typical GM, others have come out with a CAI that works with out an engineering department as large as GM and yet some wait for GM to get off their butt and release parts.Why have the part listed if you are not going to release it to the public?Hey GM,are you listening,are you watching,would you like to go tits up again?

Yeah I am curious too as to when the intake will be available. I ordered it and the GMPP axel backs when I got the car. My wife called the dealer yesterday as I am out of the country right now, but they said the original intake has been discontinued due to some units having "problems". Not sure exactly what that means, but maybe not performing as well as some aftermarket ones? Anyway, old was discontinued and they are releasing a new version in the future. When that is seems to be the mystery that no one can answer. We got our SS in Dec and if they don't have this part out by the time I return to the States in August, I'm probably going to hit the dealer up for a refund and go with an aftermarket one. Nine months is plenty of time in my opinion for them to come up with a viable solution that performs.

I know this is an old thread, but anyone have any info on the GMPP intake? I am thinking I will get a CAI or Rotofab but I figured I would at least put a little effort into GMPP gear... if they make similar numbers for similar prices then I will just get the one that I think looks the best... lol

I can tell you what I heard. I'm interested in it too, I was told it might be October of this year.

I really am not sure why etc.. But I usually ask the vendors once a month about the part, just to see
