Default Which air intake do you suggest for 2008 Corvette LS3??

My vette is a week old now and I'm ready to buy something for her. I just need a few opinions on which intake is better.

Thank you,

Intake manifold or cold air intake? I'll give you a answer for both. FAST 102mm for intake manifold and vararam for cold air intake.

Halltech MF103 Cold Air Intake, but you get majority of the power from the tune I picked up 21whp/11wtq not fully dialed in

Cold air intake is what I'm curious about. Any other ideas to up the horsepower? I don't want superchargers, turbos or heads and cam.

Thank you,

I plan on going with the Halltech for mine in the coming months, then some headers and to the tuner and see if I can break well above the 400rwhp range.

Cannot go wrong with the Halltech. We have had great success.

Thank you,
Cold Air Intake, Headers, and a Tune
All are useless IMHO without a tune so if you care about warranty just leave it stock

k/n is just as good I made 420 rwhp and 430 tq on a mustang dyno. This is with 1 3/4 headers and tune.
