Best CAI for the $$
I'm coming back to the V world after selling my 2011 coupe for a GS vette. I had an ARE CAI on both of 09 sedan and 11 Coupe. Been off the site since I had my GS, but missed the ride and quality of the V, oh I forgot I also miss that sweat whine of the Eaton!!!!
I was looking at the New Era cold air intake not sure if its marketing BS or not but they claim the following
Chassis Dyno results on a completely stock CTS-V equipped with our intake yielded an incredible gain of 34rwhp and 28lb/ft rwtq. With the addition of a custom PCM tune, we gained an additional 20rwhp and 5lb/ft rwtq to make an overall gain of 54rwhp and 33lb/ft rwtq! an incredibly noticeable power gain.
For $399 that is cheap HP gain, I noticed some member also running the Green Filter on the New Era CAI as well for even more air flow.
The only possible con to this CAI is that it is metal vs. plastic or carbon fiber and can conduct heat.
