Well it seems the Imitation is on the other foot.

Certainly wasn't a stab as you have obviously interpreted. It was obviously seen as a benefit by both Jim and Andy to fabricate something to seal away from the engine compartment as much as practicable !

Some interesting ideas there. Not sure of the cost to benefit ratio though. Some dyno number would be nice. All kits of this style (bent metal tube) will suffer from the fact that you cannot get a nice radius to the TB. Air doesn't turn 90° without turbulence.

ADM race has the washer bottle removed and a short ram type of tube going to the lower grille, and the MAF sensor located in the box, i don't think they are the same.

both are very nice

Best looking CAI I've seen so far and add to that the fact it is insulated? Awesome

I'll admit that their product looks pretty nice, but their website sure leaves something to be desired. Most of the hyperlinks are non-functional, and there seems to be listed very few supported products. For being in business for 5 years making CAIs, they sure don't offer much...at least not on their website.

Not at all.

I tend not to post in CAI product threads generally because I do not like what they are offereing. I saw some similar things in this product and I liked what I saw. ADM has perfected the high flow air box design over time. I can assure you we will not be using anything from what we have seen. Our product is what it is and we and many other performance shops have proven it's worth time and time again.

AGAIN KUDOS to CAI!

Did all these positive comments make you search for something negative?

James does a killer looking and performing CAI. The GTO dyno'ed on a stock 04 was good for 24 rear wheel hp. Also has a new website in the works designed by someone other than himself unlike his current website.

Not everyone can grow their business as fast as Bill Gates did.

I'll get one in person and tell you what I think. Website callout...come on? You wanna pay more for the product so you can have a feeling your have a time share investment in their company or something? Plenty of high prices companies out there already charging a small fortune to mod these cars. You want them to have a reason to become one too? Gheez guys! They sure took some time to R&D this thing. Money well spent in the right places indeed. I'm waiting for our dealer acct. to get setup. Adding another company to our list of quality manufacturers. Come on Cold Air Inductions!

I'm not looking to be negative, mano. I was intrigued by the look of his CAI, and hit the link to check out his products. I made the comment that I did because I was unable to get access to anything of substance. As the ole' addage goes in business, "you're only as successful as your marketing technique."
