CAI tests

The May issue of GM High Tech Performance tests seven CAIs and the factory air intake. The factory intake came in second in acceleration.
Nothing like spending four or five hundred dollars for a slower car.
Vararam was absent. They do have a full page ad showing gains of
20-35 HP 20-45 ft. lbs of torque and 3-5 tenths in the quarter mile.

Make sure you know how to read data and not just look at final results.

I was under the impression that a performance modification was for increased acceleration. Thank you for setting me straight. Where is the flaw in the test?

I haven't personally read the article but from one of the members in the other thread, the temp variation was more than 30degrees from one CAI test to another. It appears as though the test took all day and the earlier tested ones had the advantage of cooler temps while the later ones had to deal with warmer temps. There may be more problems with the test but I can't say until I read it myself.

I will wait until the tests are online. I realize cold air is denser and contains more oxygen theoretically increasing performance. However four of the CAIs tested were run in cooler weather and still were beaten in acceleration by the stock intake. Wouldn't they have the advantage over the stock intake?

This test had several serious flaws, some of the air intakes were not even properly installed! Stick to the Jannetty results is my advice.

I second that, you would think a magazine like GMhightech would know how to install something as basic as an intake. But maybe they were in a rush and really didn`t care. Not to mention the huge temp variance. I agree stick w/ the Janetty test.
