yeah, for sure! i think that is the plan, that's why they were so desperate to get me in to the shop; they had to have the instruction manual completed for the testing. hope the results are as good as the looks!

i have also offered up my car for them if they want to test it out on a V6 (which they indicated they may do within a couple of weeks)

Strange that they'd go to the effort (for performance sake) to insulate the box, then run a metal tube through the hot engine bay. Seems a conflict of interest between looks of metal and performance of plastic/insulation.

I am an engineer and generally thorough, but in this case I'm guilty of going straight for the pictures.

Longhorn SS,

The CAI system goes above and beyond on the perfomance side of Intake systems - it builds its system around the coldest air possible going into your engine = creating more HP thus better performance! The custom air tight box keeps the hot air out allowing only the ambient air to flow into the system. The CAI intake tube is not the "normal" tube because they take the metal tube and ceramic coated to keep the air at ambient temperature. Thus this is why I found CAI to be the benchmark of intake systems vs everyone else. I love my system on my 08 Duramax and will get one when I order my camaro!

I would think a ceramic coated aluminum tube would do a great job of staying cooler than plastic.

And yes it is designed to work with our cowl induction and L88 style hoods. The MPD version will be offered with the correct hood to airbox seal.

Thanks For helping us out Adam.

We're happy that you like it.

True dat. I believe in my OP I also noted the fact that it's ceramic on the inside. Do people stop reading the posts if you type more than a paragraph? I know we're car people here, but c'mon.. haha.

This entire design looks familiar....!

Hardware, Coatings and everything.....I think it looks great! Seems we have found some common ground.

Pat,

Imitation?!? Coatings & Hardware & Everything is the same as yours? LOL! CAI and your product are vastly different. Just looking at your product you have two couplers with a pipe to make your intake tube which yours is only POWDER COATED vs CAI - one aluminum bent tube that is CERAMIC COATED! You have stainless steel screws vs CAI uses stainless quarter turn fasteners. You guys screw your box together
where as CAI bends and welds their box together. CAI INSULATES their box vs your box is NOT INSULATED. Jim created CAI and the design of CAI intake systems back in 2004. So it has been around for quiet some time. I'm just a satisfied CAI customer - I'd love to hear what Jim & CAI have to say about this......
