Cold Air Induction

I notice there are several available. Which one did you buy and why?

Size:  114.8 KBK&N. Because its a "safe" brand and you can drive with it in any weather. So you don't have to worry about hydrolock on the engine.

I went with Roto - fab on our 2011 VR Vert. Love it! It added a lot of sound at WOT. We also added SOLO Cat Back and it sounds great!! Here's my engine bay:

Give this article from our blog a read. It discusses the differences between several of the more popular intake designs.

I went K&N Typhoon on my 2SS, $260 shipped off eBay. With a stock exhaust, it gave a very nice, noteable growl under acceloration. Once I added the magnaflow comp cat back, it was less distinct but still audible. With the headers, don't bear a thing now.

As for performance, at dyno tune with the magnaflow and k&n I hit 395 (LS3) compared to an LS3 saith a Rotofab and Borlas Attack at 396. Once I added the SW headers, I dyno'd at 429 Vs another LS3 w same headers but a Vararam intake and Borla Atak at 415


Basically, my experience the K&/N is performing well and looks good....

Same set-up on mine; Rotofab and Solo Cat-back. Lovin' it! I went with Rotofab after reading an article in Hot Rod that said it had the most consistent performance gains.
