What do you guys recommend for a cold air intake. There are a lot out there and they all claim various HP increases. I was going to stay with a good name but wanted to see who has one and what they think.
I use the Airraid for a few reasons....I dont have a 600+ hp car, thus it fits my requirement, its reasonably priced, and the filter IS reuseable. As far as "noise" is concerned, the only difference I've heard is when I mash the peddle going to WOT, which amounts to a "whosh" sound. Sorta like the beast is taking a big breath, then she flys.On the other hand, AIRAID has a nice one that's very reasonably priced and is easy to install yourself. I find that they make the car slightly noiser but have better throttle response. And if the filter is reusable, your already ahead of the game...
Good Choice. Tuning is good when adding a Vararam to utilize all that extra air. It was explained to me that a ECM collects 400 miles of information. If it senses the added air it thinks somethings wrong and retards power without a new tune.Its a done deal. I am going to call them to make sure I get the correct one as I have a 2005 and there seems to be some difference in the 05 and 06 but I will order this Tuesday and I will take pics for all to see. I then plan to take it to a tuner anyway to see what tune I have and tweak it if I can.
Yes, I own my own shop and had 2 insurance claims from flooded engines during times of heavy suburban downfall. 05 and 06, both used varoom suckers. Insurance adjuster suggested declining coverage on both cars but did agree to pay. It was clear that the filters did see some water of some type because filters were a milky pink.Is that from experience? Or did someone tell you. I ask because I am leaning toward the Vararam
