Cold Air Inductions CAI

I recently installed a CAI from Cold Air Inductions and gotta say it is definitely worth it as a MUST DO.. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a CAI...

I had previously installed a full Stainless Works exhaust (headers, cats and 3" catback) which made a notable improvement on the top end. The CAI kit arrived a few days later which I promptly installed.

The installation was very straightforward, went in pretty smooth. Took it out for a spin and the results were impressive ... much more responsive, pulls harder and improves exhaust sound plus looks amazing (picture attached!) While parked and reving up the engine you can hear it pulling in all that air, sounds great!!

A few days later the SCT tuner came in with Ted's header tune which tied together the whole package very nicely.

CAI, the official brand of Camaro5, lol!! Yea it's definitely one of the popular intakes. And one of the top performing ones as well. I personally prefer the Vararam due to the fact that it provides the straightest most direct flow possible into the intake. And also because while moving, it will draw in the coldest possible air. Otherwise I would have considered CAI brand. It looks nice tho. Congrats!

Definitely going to do the scoop and wb relocation, also vmax ported TB.

Have not ran it at the track but did run a g-force timer on it and shaved over half a second with the mods (headers/CAI/catback and tune)

Have not ran up against a 5.0 mustang yet but have no problem taking out all bolt on- modded 4.6 GTs I have ran up against. Also ran a 2010 Shelby GT convertible where we neither of us could pull on the other after a few runs it came down to who got the jump on the other.. would not be able to do that with a newer one though....

Since I have a L99/A6 convertible I think I will need a bit more considering 3.73 gears and wider sticky tires to start. I would love to go with 3.92 gears but fear the hit with HW driving.

Yea with your mods a similarly modded 4.6 3V won't stand a chance...even with their weight advantage.

I also was impressed with the addition of the cold air intake, really improves mid RPM power. I looked at several and found this one by Spectre at Summit Racing for under $150.

Last week, I did a bolt ons 2012 MN6 LS3 Camaro. He bought it used from a dealership with the stainless power headers with HF Cats, CAI no scoop, Borla exhaust no tune.

Pulled it up on the dyno and he was 402 RWHP/ 386 RWTQ out of the box. I told him that was going to tough to beat even with a tune. We ended up with
419 RWHP/413 RWTP. It got really torque.

Even without the scoop, I still had to add a little fuel on street the street test run because it leaned out a hair. It didn't really need the extra fuel until the owner said he was adding the scoop and I wanted to keep him safe.

Id say my personal favorite intakes would 1st be Vararam and 2nd CAI.
