Side effect? Heavier foot.

:biggrinjester:

Just pick out the CAI you like the best, non are better than the other unless you get the Legmaker which actually pulls air from outside the engine bay.

Tuners are easy to install, search around and you'll find everything you need to know. :beerchug:

For tuner the only way to go is Diablo! It is a personal choice as to whether you go Intune or Trinity
Both will provide you with the same tuning ability, the trinity just offers more other features like timers, real time data display, and ability to hook up external gauges etc.

Trinity

As far as intakes there are lots of good options, IMO the best intake for this platform is the LMI carbon intake, by far our best seller and performer.

Package deals save you money if buying both!

The only other intakes I would consider would be the AFE or R2C but the LMI would be my first choice

I know I got a CAI from ebay, and it works great. It keeps temps, around ambient. I even posted a couple picks where it's 1-3 degrees cooler then the ambient temp on my dash. I just added a spectre filter instead of the ebay filter, and replaced the couplings with spectre too.

Thanks for all the reply's....

I stumbled across a few links and forums that suggest a CAI doesn't really improve HP or fuel economy. and the only gains if any, were seen at WOT, which under normal daily driving habits, your throttle wont be wide open.

What are your thoughts on this?
So is a new CAI all hype....
What about tuners, do they make a difference
And adding (example Magnaflow catback) would that help HP and etc...

You are not going to see large gains from a catback, most people do a catback more for sound than anything else. The biggest restriction in the system is the cats, so going to high flows there will free up some hp.

The tuners will add hp, figure on at least 15 hp on a stock vehicle. And th nice thing is you will need one if you do more extensive modding in the future, so it will grow with you and your needs.

As far as intakes, they do add hp, and yes peak hp is what is always quoted on any mod, but you do see gains *with a quality intake* accross the range.

What is the difference between a stage 1 and a stage 2 CAI

So CAI only increases hp when paired with a tuner like diablo

That's just for AFE intakes. Stage one is just the filter and heat shield, the stage two is the full on intake.

Kris,

Are there high flow cats or headers you recommend that work with magnaflow 16642
Do you get better mpg and performance


If you set the tuner to use 91 octane performance - do you get better mpg too along with the increase in performance

The stock headers on the SRT are actually very good, I would keep them but add high flow cats to go along with the cat back
Here is the most popular high flows, also from magnaflow
