    Re: KPE Cadillac CTS 3.6 Air Intake Group Buy

    Hello and I'm new to this site. I have the 08 CTS 3.6 (AWD) Caddy and would love this air box. The only thing is I need some time in order to get one due to money. I still need to fix my 06 GTO, I broke my half shaft at the track, so money right now is a little tight. I really want one of these air boxes, if this unit is anything like for the GTO, then I'm all for this cause this will really help these cars breathe.

    Hey bob, any chance KPE is working on some long tubular headers for the 3.6L DI engine? Also any updates on your exhaust system? Would be great to hear some power numbers and some audio clips!

    Hello Beanjapan, There are no plans at this time to build headers for the 3.6 DI. No updates or videos on the exhaust. If there was more interest, we could get some videos and dyno done.

    Is there still time to get in on this group buy? I'm looking to pick up a 2008 CTS4, and I'd like to grab a CAI for it.

    Re: KPE Cadillac CTS 3.6 Air Intake Group Buy

    So this KPE intake is the very same like the original Airaid system? Even the badge at the Airaid is the same size and shape (i.e. debadged) and it is too expensive to create a new rebranded filter box or larger box for everything. It also does make the same noticeable whistle sound around the same rpm under partial load. So if anything should be changed to the design KPE may put some pressure onto Airaid to do it.

    And this noise indeed is normal for such air intakes as the stock system has been designed to prevent such noises. Have a look inside the Airraid (or KPE) tube where the ventilation tube is connected to. The port inlet is straight with sharper plastic edges compared to the stock parts. Also you will notice that these tubes are wider in diameter after the MAF what causes the air to be slowed down. This together with such port inlets usually cause such noises (some other cars experience sounds like a "honking goose"). A MKII version could be designed to eliminate these sounds. Additionally the usual noises like described from the TB blades are more audible due to the conical air filter that is not fitted in an enclosure. It is only covered by the upper plate what results in more noise that cannot be avoided.

    Regarding the performance measures one must be aware that the given power rating is on the flywheel. Real wheel horsepower is somewere between 15 and 22% less depending on the type of drivetrain (automatic, AWD) and its loss. A good dyno (rolling road) with coast-down method can show the real power on the wheels (one may measure around 250hp) with engine flywheel power calculated by adding the drivetrain loss and proper correction (SAE, DIN).

    The iPhone app can only be used to compare before and after as its measures and calcs are not that appropriate. So if you have the app, do the test 5 times before the install and again 5 times afterwards. Take the mean of each 5 and the resulting difference is the real gain. Since the installation can be done in about 10 minutes the ambient will not change much and therefore the measures are compareable.

    Cheers,
    Roger

    KPE, thanks for the response. That link shows me the normal product listing at $297. Is there a promo code or some other special way to get the GB price? How long will the sale be going on? Thanks!
