    Re: KPE Cadillac CTS 3.6 Air Intake Group Buy

    Got mine today. Installed pretty easy but it took me a little longer than I expected it to take. Still not too bad. Instructions for this specific kit would be better instead of using the airaid v kit. Its close enough though.

    The whistle is there sometimes but I love the other music made now.

    Sounds and performs awesome. Much improved throttle response.

    My Butt dyno tells me its doing its job. Eventually I'll put this on real rollers. There is a chassis dyno local to me.

    Next is the exhaust. Bob what 'cha got? Where are those sound clips we talked about?

    First,you really should double check the install to ensure the intake is installed properly and everything is tight, sealed, and intact. Especially the filter, as it mounts to a relatively short flange.



    We believe we may know what this being described. It’s the sound of the air going past the throttle plate when accelerating from cruise. There is a split second when you put your foot in it, that there is a slightly audible sucking sound. This sound is masked by the dense OEM filter and air box enclosure. We suppose it could be considered a “side effect” by some, to others it’s the sound of a cool intake.

    I'm pretty sure it's the throttle plate whistling. My STS did the same thing. Remember how whistles work - air moving quickly over a sharp edge.

    My 09 CTS does the same thing with my D3 intake at partial throttle. It's one of the noises the OEM intake baffles out. If KPE designed theirs to remove that noise it would require more tooling, more baffling, and more restriction.

    Does this fit on a 2008 3.6L SFI?

    Bob,

    Thanks for the fast service -- got the intake installed this afternoon. Install went pretty smooth, I had to buy a thread tap but that was the only thing I was missing. Took a bit longer than I expected, but overall it went well.

    I'm very pleased with the new sound!

    Next up might be the exhaust -- do you have any further details on your axle-back setup?

    Thanks,

    Pat

    Sorry about the missing thread tap Pat. I'm trying to get videos or sound clips of the 3.6 exhaust, hopefully we will have this done soon! We have 1 system currently in stock.

    Re: KPE Cadillac CTS 3.6 Air Intake Group Buy

    My kit did not come w/ a tap for the 1/4-20 screw that goes in at the bottom of the intake box. I did however, find one at harbor freight for 11 bucks! :-D

    Tapped the bottom hole and now my intake box is VERY securely fastened to my vehicle. I have to drive it some more, but the whistle noise seems to have gone down just a bit... but it could also be the weather has changed, and the air is cooler and denser... perhaps this is having a great affect?

    Been driving it for a few days now, still make a little bit of a whistle noise as before. Definitely the Throttle body making it. Oh well, I just love the overall benefits from the intake WAY to much to give it up over a minor whistle i hardly ever hear.

    actually how much would it be shipped to Canada? 4225 Kincaid St, Burnaby, BC, Canada, V5G 4P5? Would prefer FedEx or USPS. UPS charges brokerage so we get ripped off majorly in Canada

    alternativley, how much is it shipped to Blaine WA, 98230
