blackwing SLP CAI any info ?

Im just curious if any one has any experience with the blackwing Cai from slp
theres no box for the air filter, my ?: Is this as good as other CAI kits, There no box but it looks like it goes pretty far down. Im guessing but it looks like cold air should be no problem where it appears to be placed. Im interested in it because SLP is usually great stuff and the price is very good. They claim a 15 hp gain.

IMO, i think it looks cheaply made from the installed photos! your best bet, if you want this style of CAI the nicest looking one is the Fastlane pipeline kit... the one i installed was LateModelRacecraft and it works great. no tune required but you might get an engine lean code like i heard someone getting with the Fastlane kit, and you could possibly get with the SLP.

NO TUNE IS REQUIRED W/ THE VARARAM.

fixed... i had a guy PM me on a different forum asking if i got a P0171 & P0174 engine lean codes after installing my CAI, he had the Fastlane one and a tune fixed the problem. i thought if that one caused issues, others that rely on "ram air" would as well. then again i'm no intake expert!

Blackwing looks like an effective system and a decent price. It does include the new washer res, so that is good. Not a fan of the filter they use though. Not the best quality.

I spoke to SLP this morning. They said the element is placed where it is to grab the cold air pocket.expect 15 flywheel Horse, Also said it installs in 1.5 hrs. Im looking foward to finding out the cost of non tune vararam. The good thing for me I have to wait because im broke so by time I save up enought to do my exhaust and my CAI the prices most likely will dop. I have seen the Borla cat back for $1100 already im hoping things come down to Stang prices soon

I can't say enough good things about my Roto-Fab. That took me close to an hour to install.

That looks like it'd be a pain in the ass to install.
