    Airaid. It won't ruin your warranty and unleashes the supercharger sound in your car.

    Does an air raid and an exhaust make a noticeable power difference??

    If anything, I think the CAI is the best/easiest early mod you can do: completely reversable, very cheap, very easy and most people conservatively report around 20 RWHP gains (plus the cool S/C whine).

    Exhaust is questionable on gains without a matching tune, as it more significantly affects the air/fuel and cylinder scavenging. That, and it's much, much more expensive.

    Go with the Airaid. Diablosport sucks.

    I will assure you, there is nothing about our tuners that will lead to a warranty issue on a GM vehicle. We are the only tuner you can buy that will NOT show up on a CVN check at the dealership, and the gains are huge compared to a CAI

    Yeah, but he had to choose a place to start and had money for one. You get the intake, enjoy for a while, and save up for the Diablo so you can optimize flow. Then you have both! Thinking about trying a Diablo myself.

    Re: Air raid or diablo predator?

    hey Mike, I live in a fairly remote part of Canada and a trustable tuner is about 8 hours away. I have a airaid and a 2.5" straight pipe muffler delete and im running a bit rich atm. I was wondering IF i bought a diablosport tuner, could I plug it in and tune for my existing mods to help out with a bit of power.
