First Thoughts LMR CAI

I went down to LMR today and had them install their CAI. I have to say they have a pretty nice shop. Joe was nice enough to show me around and have a look at all the cars they are working on. WOW!

Now, when I left the parking lot I turned off traction control and it was the first time I have been able to spin the tires even a little bit. So with that I was impressed to begin with.

The sound has changed dramatically. The sound up front is what this car should sound like from the beginning. It has changed the exhaust tone some as well. You really hear a big difference when you are on full throttle. The tone has changed and you can really hear the exhaust much better. It has not changed the way anything sounds for normal driving just when on throttle.

I still am not getting the 0-60 times but I am now contributing that to Houston and the heat and humidity. I am still around 1300 miles as well so this thing still has some mileage before it really loosens up.

I wish I would have gone with the carbon fiber now but that won't make any difference but cosmetic.

I have to say with the customer service and the product I give LMR a big

I added pics to the first post. I included a couple pics of the old air box. That thing is huge and I don't see how the car can breathe with that thing.

I posted some results in a thread about CAI comparisons.

This weekend at the car show and dyno session, a guy rolled up in a CGM SS and had a Hennessey CAI and Corsa cat back. LMR asked if they could dyno it with the Hennessey CAI and then with the LMR.

With the LMR, his car picked up 8-9 horse and 12-13 ft/lbs on back to back runs with no cool down time; just the time to change out the CAIs.

Very impressive OVER the Hennessey CAI and Cors Cat-back.

2005 CTSV BLACK LS7 Clutch/Flywheel/Slave, Tick Speed Bleeder, Tilton Clutch MC, RevShift Bushings, Domestic V8 Solutions (shifter, 8.8 Diff conversion, srut tower braces, sub-frame connectors), SLP cats, no cags, xpipe, bullet mufflers, Volante, iPod dock, G-force tune; 379hp 381tq.

Killing 5th gens like it is my job.

Yeah Joe was telling me about that this morning.
He said when they did that they were concerned that if they came up short of the Hennessey they would look foolish.
They did perform this test in front of a large amount of people so they are very confident in their product as am I.

Actually carbon fiber has outstanding heat dispersion characteristics. Heat soak in either one is pretty little but the carbon would deffinitely heat soak a lot less. Can't wait to see some 0-60 gains.

Proud owner of a 2005 srt-4 on less boost and heat soaked put down 372whp and 395wtq. Building my 1973 celica hopefully running before police academy starts. Can't wait to own a new car off the lot. Looking into the 1lz
