Just curious which CAI you guys without FI suggest! LOL... I know to stay away from the K&N but I was looking into the IEATSRT8 CAI. Looks good and I've heard good things about it. What do you guys have and what do you think about them?

My buddy has the MAC cai, look it up on the internet, it actually looks pretty sweet and not to expensive like some.

i have vectors on mine and i like it, looks good. Under the deals part of the site they have a thread on how to make your own cai for something like 80$ might want to look into that.

I decided to go with the IEATSRT8 CAI and HSRK combo... plus before he sends it to me he's gonna install the new IAT sensor. Chris is a cool guy, he is also including a seal for the area surrounding the tubing when it's leaving the stock airbox. Should help keep that hot air the LS2 makes out of the airbox!

ADM is what I have, I can't really say much about anyone else since I have no experience with them. I like it so far.

For the CAI, seal, and the HSRK, with Chris installing the HSRK for me is $332 shipped. Which I think is really good considering the other CAIs are at least $250 and then another $100 for an HSRK. I think the HSRK by itself is $80 from Chris. You can email him with questions... [email protected]

if i could do it again i would make one. the materials used are pretty universial and the main objective is to increase airflow by taking off the restrictive stock intake. just a thought before you drop a couple benjis on something you can make for under 100.

I have IEATSRT8's as well. I drove around for 6 months with it in the box in the back of the SS, finally put it on after I got my SLP installed and the day before my dyno tune. So far, I really like it!

The ADM comes w/ a 100mm MAF, I believe the others use the stock 80mm one.. I notice many other tuners use ADM's CAI... Prolly for a reason. I believe you will need a tune w/ ADM's to adjust the computer to the bigger MAF.. 100mm MAF means 20% more air volume available.

So what exactly does that mean? Will 8 grams/sec of air register a lower hz reading with the 100mm MAF vs stock.. Will it provide more accuracy.. meaning. The delta in g/sec will read out a lower delta in hz with the 100mm vs 80..
