    Cool Re: New Caddy 2013 CTSV owner...need advice on CAI

    Just an update. I installed the Air Raid CAI. It's really got a noticeable HP increase, although my caddy only has 500 miles on her so not sure if that's me or the CAI. Love the air raid. Thanks for the input guys!

    Next is the exhaust! Which one??????

    Does it sound like liquidy farts?

    FYI - autozone carries the Airaid online. If anyone is ordering one, there is a $25 gift card for every $100 spend promo going on right now. You can buy the CAI for $340 and get $75 back (free shipping).

    It looks like a deal that's hard to beat.

    I can't buy an Airaid now if Autozone sells it. No Pep Boy level parts on my car. Guess I have to go D3.

    J/K, I still want it.

    It's only online, and honestly I was surprised too: doesn't come in neon blue and there's no chrome accents - WTF?

    You can redeem yourself by spending the gift cards on some pimp Always-at-Autozone dual-blade wipers for your V (not very closely matching the exterior color, of course) and later spring for the D3 fog lamp assemblies so people know you're a real baller.



    If it makes you feel any better, you're setting down three bills for a plastic tube with a MAF sensor mount on it.

    Has anyone any experience with the Halltech, APE, or New Era CAI's? I think the looks of the Airaid installed is certainly less appealing than these others. But looks aren't everything. Any feedback would be appreciated. Cheers,

    i've had my airraid sitting in a box since I bought my used car. The guy had bought it but not installed. I would install it but it is not CARB compliant. Anyone here in California run the Air Raid? What are the pitfalls besides SMOGing of course?

    About 10k miles on mine. I doubt it gives any performance improvement, but the SC whine is a nice touch.

    very rarely it seems................

    I guess it's time to attempt an install. I thought bout putting a V sticker on it to make it look more stock... maybe it'll pass smog that way ?
    I just hope nothing drops into that stupid engine bay again =/

    Ordered it.

    Cost $298 shipped. Crazy cheap for the anticipated HP/Torque gains.
    We have just bought a 2013 CTS-V Wagon. Where did your Airaid from?
