New SLP Cold Air Intake System

Hi all!

I was checking out a lot of different intake systems and have it narrowed down to a couple (CAI Inc, AirAid, and RotoFab), then I just happened to be on the SLP site and noticed that they put out a new system with a cone filter for the 3.6L.

I know the F Bodies had a lot of different bolt ons from SLP.

2012-2014 V6 Camaro Blackwing Cold Air Induction Kit w/Blue Filter - slponline.com

Has anyone installed this system or heard anything on it???

I've been looking at that system, too. Main thing I like ,aside from the obvious quality construction and reputation of Street Legal Performance, is the fact that pricing does not seem to be "locked" like some of the more talked-about systems on the market. Shop around; some good deals on this one. A black filter system is also available - p/n 620045.

I'm curious as to how it stacks up against the systems mentioned above (CAI Inc, Roto Fab, and AirAid).

On one hand I like the idea with the CAI Inc system that it completely closes off the top of the system and is insulated drawing cool air in from the underside of the intake. On the other hand, the new SLP Black Wing system appears to pull air in from a port/tube behind the grille...I'm intrigued.

Also, wondering if SLP has any less of a chance of voiding warranty since they have worked with GM/Chevy before.

I did the research and decided on CAI; however, then I added a hood that would have blown cool air onto the air filter but the CAI box prohibits that from happening. I guess it still helps to get the cool air under the hood though it is not necessarily as much to the engine ... just keep that in mind in relation to the closed box CAI if there is any chance of changing a hood.

Hokie -- not sure i'll get a ram air hood, at least right away.


How well do the intakes with an open top box typically seal out the heat with the hood? I would think that the engine heat radiating from the engine and the outside temps heating up the hood would heat up the air, even though it's pulling air from the bottom of the car or from behind the grill???

I really recommend injen CAI since its a hit less expensive than slp and adds 17 hp an 15 tq which means that it is one of the best intakes out there in adding power after vararam but vararam doesnt get installed on 12,13,14 models due to some design change ...

Thanks for the post V6, but with as much as it can rain here I'd be a concerned with the possibility of hydro-lock.

I do appreciate the post!

Thanks patriotpa.

Iv'e seen the thread that Jannity Racing put togeather and it was well put togeather, but I don't recall it including the SLP intake. That is, unless they've recently updated it or if you're talking about another thread.

The models I remember that were incuded were:
Cold Air Inductions
RotoFab
K&N
AirAid
Enjen (Long Tube Model)
