I wish I was in the CAI business, I'd be rich by now. But I have too many morals to sell stuff that doesn't really do anything for $200.
Aside from increasing induction noise and making it sound faster, a CAI isn't going to do much if anything. And unless it pulls truly cooler air from the fenderwell (vs an inefficient under hood, behind headlamp design) you're really wasting your money. For maybe 2-6 HP, a power increase you likely won't even feel. :huh:
But hey, people buy cross drilled brake rotors every day and they don't do squat either. Sometimes looks are more important than function. Provided you know that's what you're buying, then that's ok.
