    i cut the bottom of my stock box and tunneled a custom ram air dam up. The supercharger is def louder and the Ass-o-meter can be felt for sure. It was all done by me for under $10 and less then an hour

    I just bought my Airaid 251-253 CAI on Amazon for $334 shipped and Airaid has a $30.00 off coupon going on now until the 30th so not a bad deal i think!

    airaid shows both of these part numbers, 250-253 and 251-253 as being for the 2009-2013 (and therefore 2014) cts-v...anyone know what the difference is?

    unfortunately, on their site "cadillac" isn't an option in the search box...

    Well, I found my own answer, but that did prompt a follow-up question...apparently "250" is the oiled option, "251" is the dry...any recommendations?

    I got my 250 model today.

    Age old dilema. Some people say the oil can cause problems with the map/maf sensor. Typically the only problems people usually have with that is after they clean them for the first time and the OVER oil them and sucks onto maf sensor throwing codes. If it is cleaned, dried and then just coated with oil like you are supposed to it wont cause problems. Oiled of course traps more dirt. Dry will flow better in beggining slightly then oiled but once they are dirty are the same. Dry you can blow out with compressed air once or twice but then needs replacement. I guess its just your preference. Either will work fine. I went with oiled. On my Diesel I have a dry filter. Go figure !

    I bought my Airaid cai direct from them because they made me a blue synthamax filter to match my opulent blue coupe at no extra charge.
    Easy install and it runs and sounds great and the folks at Airaid were great to work with. Borla sport axle back to be installed shortly.

    Ordered it.

    Cost $298 shipped. Crazy cheap for the anticipated HP/Torque gains.
    Just ordered mine for my 2013 V-Wagon. Did not get your great price though...paid $343.48 shipped from Amazon.

    Please post the results of your Borla. I am interested in that set up too, but it seems many here go with the Corsa.
