CAI'S

Hello everyone, I'm new here, great site. I have a 45th Anniverary SS/RS, my first Camaro, and I've just had it for about a month. My question is, I have a catback exhaust with 40 series flowmasters. I like the sound as it is. I looking to install a CAI. Someone told me that this change's the sound a little, and put's more sound up front. Is that right? Or is it not enough to make a difference?

A CAI will make your car a bit louder...you'll hear it. Nothing super crazy, but definitely noticeable. And the engine will roar a bit more dominantly as well!! You're gonna love it!!

A good CAI will improve your sound and give it a bit of depth...a crappy one will change the sound but in a bad way so just be careful and don't go for the cheap stuff with the assumption that they will all do the same thing.

Worth the money for sure. I have a CAI brand one. Made it more throaty. If going with this brand definitely worth the extra cash for the washer fluid bottle relocation kit.

It will sound a little different. I immediately noticed the sound of it sucking in air. Similar to that of a vacuum cleaner. Not the noise from one but the suction sound from the wand. It definitely sounds good and more aggressive than stock. Plus you notice a bit more in the seat of your pants feel when you get on the throttle.

I have Cold Air Inductions CAI installed on my LT and my husband has one installed on his SS. Definiatly gives it a little more rumble. I really noticed it with my LT as I still have the stock exhaust. Gives his SS a deeper sound with the Solo cat back he has installed.

It will not give you much more sound. But it shines when you take off at a light that's when it will roar and thats when you will hear a diffrents. I have one and love it.
