The D3 Air Intake Kit for the CTS ...
The D3 Air Intake Kit for the CTS is a complete system that replaces the OEM closed airbox with a high flow K&N Air Filter.
By replacing the primary air inlet tube with our larger bore high flow aluminum pipe we are now able to allow for the maximum amount of air to flow through the primary air inlet. The result is a gain of 8-10 HP for the 3.6DI CTS. Additionally the higher flow intake kit requires less effort from the vehicle to take in air allowing for the vehicle to use its existing power much more efficiently.

Re: Cadillac CTS Intake System
Solution to the MAF sensor being molded to the OEM Air box is simple.....Cut the OEM MAF at the point it connects to the OEM box. Connect that end to the new D3 CAI. The diameters just need to be compatible with each other. I doubt that the MAFS will know the difference.
