Nice, thanks for posting.

Man I wish New Era performed a little better. I think it looks the best. They'd need to lower their price too based on every report I've seen so far. Another thing that would be nice with these intakes if they could be measured accurately off the dyno in driving situations since that would have an affect on this intake's performance specifically (being somewhat of a ram air).

I'm wondering if the Cold Air Inductions rig would've produced better performance if it were a cooler day. The day it was tested it was 71 degrees. Or maybe just a high flow airfilter in the the stock airbox?

That's the one I ended up going with. It's still in the box though cause I want to get it powder coated to match the engine bay. That will take care of the ugliness to it. Performance wise, without a tune it appeared to still do better than most. With a tune I bet it will be off the hizzle. Can't wait to install.

There is a up to a 25* split in the ambient temps...I can undersand what they wanted to do but the acceleration results are no more reliable than the dyno results with those temp differences..jmo..BTW I don't have a dog in the fight for any of the intakes.

Holy crap, I didn't notice that. That's a HUGE difference for a "controlled" test.

I just installed A CAI system on my L99, it runs a lot stronger than i would have guess it would. I have installed other systems on Mustangs, BMW's, 300c, and ford trucks and never experianced the torque I feel with this system. IMO, it's AWESOME. No problems, such as stumbing or throwing codes. I replaced it, after another system caused these same problems. That system was mentioned in this test. The CAI makes the car run the way it should run coming from the factory.

Would have liked to see Roto Fab make the list. They are certainly popular enough.

Yea that's the interesting part. It did. But it was also in the bottom three as far as accerating. Was wondering if it would have done better if it were cooler like in the fastlane test(which happen to have the highest score in acceleration I believe)

Me personally, like Infern0 I was looking into getting a cold air induction unit myself. Just thought it was interesting

Did any one but me think its funny that the stock intake had the 2nd fastest acceleration times next to the Fastlane? I can see why the Fastlane was number 1 with its design but the others being slower??? WTF. I would have liked to see Roto, Halltech, K & N, and Vararam in the test also. That would have been the ultimate. I also would have done 1/4 test runs on each using a L99 car with drag radials. Even if you throw out ET you can always use trap speed to look at the intakes true performance. You can even calculate temp and air into the equation on a 1/4 run to make every test the same. We should bug Ted to do this.
