If you want the car to perform 1st it needs to breath in the air it needs to perform. All, I say all, factory intake boxes are very restrictive. If you don't believe me, go pull the one in your car out and ask yourself "how in the hell does this help my car breathe?"
Then look at aftermarket air boxes and lids. you don't need to be a scientist to see the difference and how your car will benifit from a better intake.
It would be like putting a nose plug on your nose and going for a jog.
The after that remove the nose plug, insert tubes to make the nostrils bigger, wahlah..... more power and ability to breathe more.

2. Then you need to exhail. So We get headers, preferably long tubes, and exhaust. Why? Because you can breathe in alday long, but it does no good unless you can also breathe out.

Hope this helps to put this into perspective.


Gotta inhale before you exhale

Stay tuned

I am very much looking forward to your results. It would be great (if possible) to see the graphs with one item installed at a time, but understand thats not always an option. And thanks for all the great info you supply so frequently. Keep up the good work Robin.

You gain hp not only from cold air but also from the free flowing filters that come with the kits.

OK....thank you. So do we then get the oil drip mess like my late 80's K&N? Or is it just triple the price of the standard element?
Theres another question for Robin...does the GMPP airbox use the standard filter or a more expensive version?

Confused

I'm a little confused.
How is this a CAI (COLD air intake) when the air inlet is the exact same position as stock?
Looking at the outside, the design is very close to stock except for the "bling"...how does it flow better?

Not trying to put down the product...it is hot looking. Just confused how it could preform better than stock.

The design is more straight through than the OEM intake. There are large baffles on the stock one. But I do agree it isn't a TRUE CAI.
