    New Caddy 2013 CTSV owner...need advice on CAI

    Hi all...

    Just bought a brand new 13' cts v sedan. Looking for an intake and heard of air raid as the one to go with.

    Does anyone currently own a 2013 and have put the air raid cia on their ride?

    I want to make sure nonissues with your the sensors/fitment etc.

    Thanks

    Not a 2013 but I've got one...and love it. It's not the only kid on the block but it works well.

    5000 miles with an AirAid on a 2013 Wagon. No issues, including some track days.

    Airaid sounds like what you are looking for....

    I was going to go with an Airaid 100%, but I came across a great deal on a D3 CAI that I couldn't pass up...installed easily, no tune need...feels and sounds great...much more whine. Love it!

    2013 V coupe with a little under 4k miles w/Airaid. Noticeable HP increase and SC whine. No issues. Love it!

    I had an Airaid on my 2009 V that I transferred to my 2013 V wagon. No issues, no muss, no fuss, just wonderful, gorgeous supercharger whine. 9000 miles with the setup on the 2013 so far.

    Autoeverything had the Air Raid setup.

    Ordered it.

    Cost $298 shipped. Crazy cheap for the anticipated HP/Torque gains.

    13 V sedan and no issues here after 2000 kms, I can't speak of any hp increase as I installed it the day after I got the car lol.

    Just installed Airaid and a Borla and couldn't be happier. I just turned 600 miles so she's not even broken in yet, can't wait to really get on it. The whine from the S/C is now noticable. At first I was a bit disappointed with the sound from the Borla, but after a few miles, I have come to accept that they made it with a very "adult" sound. I'm okay with that.....some day I'll act like an adult too.....maybe

    If you like the sound of the Airaid now, when you are ready, swap out the filter for the larger, better flowing K&N cone filter. It is much more Voupe sounding!

    Mr. Hyde, so the Borla is too tame for you?
