    Default Air Intakes

    This is usually 1 of the 1st mods that a DIYer can do. Which system will you use or what do you think of the system you have.

    I'm really happy with my New Era Performance CAI. It has a nice look, and sinks deep into the front of the car taking full advantage of the GRRRR8 lower panel mod. The sound at WOT is mean as hell, and relatively unnoticed untill you open it up.

    NEP for me!

    I really liked the design. More raw perfomance look IMO. Wish it had the heat barrier but it's all good.

    2009.5 MSM GXP 500ish N/A RWHP. Mods include but aren't limited to: Texas Speed 418 (6.8L) fully forged held together with ARP from top to bottom, PRC 255cc heads, Rick Crawford intake plenum, TB port, polish and tune, Roto-Fab 102mm CAI w/LS7 MAF, Kooks 1-7/8" headers wrapped with DEI, Corsa catless system, Circle D 3200 Stall, 3.45 final drive, BMR's complete street bushing kit and sway bars, Eibach Pro Kit, G-Force Axles, running on staggered VMR 710's with Bridgestone RE11 rubber. HSV triple gauge pack with Calais smokers kit mod, V6 tails, debadge/rebadge, V6 door handles, AU black door trim, Maverick Man under hood strut covers, & washer and bolt kit, fully corrected paint thanks to Adams Polishes and my hard work. Built with reliability in mind with some power for those times when you need to pass or go over a big hill. Just a poser, not a racer!

    Roto-Fab for me. If I could get a piece of triangular ducting to fit around the outside of the bottom of the intake housing and reach about 2 inches beyond the lower panel (in order to cut and fold back to create the lower mount) I could make it perfect.

    Roto-Fab is what I currently have. I had a NEP, but decided to go with the Roto because A-I like the "factory" style look and B-VMS has a fantastic tune for the Roto.

    The NEP is a nice setup and now VMS has a tune for that also(of course, Mike at NEP has a tune also, lol) , so you really can't go wrong with either. It just depends on what you like the look of.

    I will be doing something with the "snorkle"of the RF this week to extend it closer to the cool air.

    I started with the New Era, but Roto-Fab gave me one, so I had to put it on.
