Hey Anyone have a CAI from them. I bought one. Was only 65. Got it today. I think it looks good. Will post pics once it is on and If it is worth anything. Thought i would try it.

Are you going to insulate it from underhood heat? If you don't, you'll just suck lots of hot air and the car will probably be slower and get worse mileage.

Thats a good question. I did not think about that. I have some abs will have to make one if i don't see any results. I have Dynolicious for my ipod touch. Will test see if there is any difference.

I bought one too but mine came with a K&N filter. Looks good but sucks alot of hot air cause there is no heat shield.

You are probably better off keeping it stock or maybe going with the K&N. Those metal intakes absorb and retain a lot of heat.

So I put the CAI on. I had already ordered. It looks good. But will see if it works good.

Looks nice but you wasted your money. That's a HAI not a CAI.

What have you noticed so far? I will say, I dislike the blue silicone very much!

You know i read the hot air intake stuff. It sounds like a 4bbl carb. And as far as the hot air stuff. I like the look of this intake to k&n. I been building cars for 27 years and that divider will not make that much of a difference. Not for the price. i can Put the diff in a tuner. And I got my camaro to race someone. This is a fun car to drive. And going to take to car shows some. In the end I think it is a good CAI. Fit real good.

Let me know how install goes and if everything you needed came with it.


I plan on purchasing one.

I already have a spectre performance cone filter though so I suppose I just need something that allows me to tee in and also connect to mass air sensor.


thanks

Everything you need is with it. Has instructions. I think it looks good compared to the K&N. Great deal. As far as I am concerned. Post pics when you get it.

I bet your intake air temps are a good deal higher than stock though, especially when the car isn't moving. I had a home made HAI on my 99 gtp with the filter up in the corner like that- and intake air temps were a good deal over the stock airbox (or a well insulated CAI box- not like these K&Ns) when stopped and at low speeds, especially when the radiator fans were running.

i can Put the diff in a tuner.

What do you mean you can put the diff in a tuner? You can't tune your car to suck colder air.

In the end I think it is a good CAI.

As said above, if its open to the engine bay heat, it is considering a HAI, not a CAI.


Not trying to rip on your mod, looks good- just needs either a wall or box (preferably insulated) to make it a true CAI.

I hear ya. On the CAI and HAI. But I really got this one because of the looks of it. I am not racing the car. It is my weekend car. And the car is so fun to drive. My camaro is my race car. And I have an 05 Mustang GT to hot rod around in. And I know you can't tune for cold air. I mean the 200 could go to buy a dioblo tuner. I respect all the stuff you guys do to make cars fast.
