    I'm also looking for one, and there are some on eBay for $66- $$250. Some are blue and some are red. What do you guys think about them? Anybody bought cai from eBay?

    Re: Cold Air Intake

    k&n filter in my stock box...if I were to buy one the only one id consider is Volant. The 'open filter' under the hood seems like it'd suck in nothing but hot air vs a box with a snorkel pulling cooler air in from outside the engine bay. Plus anything with metal piping looks nice but seems to defeat the purpose of cai as well as metal retains heat & your heating the air pulling in. Just my opinion...

    Check out Cold Air Inductions kit. It looks extremely well designed. It has an encloses insulated box, ceramic coated tube, ect.

    I ordered one, but it is on backorder.

    I'm curious too. Hear great things about volant, air raid, and k&n but has anyone tested these to see which has the best gains? Fuel mileage increase, or sound?
    I have a 2010 also...

    I have a Volant. I went with the oil filter as it has a higher flow rate. Between like 3000-3700 I get a wohhhhhhh sound. before or after that range same as stock. It makes you think the engine is more powerful. Either way I prefer the growl of the raw engine or exhaust better. But people riding in my car say it sounds more powerful. I think Volant is good. Oil filter relube bottle should be 1/4 the size that it is as people would use it more conservatively than. Oil filters are good, it's the people over applying the oil that are not

    I also have a Volant intake and man do I love the sound. The truck both feels and sounds more powerful than its stock counterparts. I test drove a few other Escalades and when I test drive the one I have now with the intake it was love at first sound.. I know my jokes are corny but I am extremely happy.

    Re: Cold Air Intake

    Ok, I got my new Cold Air Inductions inc. intake, and installed it. This thing is by far the nicest CAI I have ever had. I have put an intake on every vehicle I have ever owned including several K&N's (metal & plastic) , Volant, custom LegMaker for my SRT8, to custom Steiger for my wife's caravan and my Samurai.
    I would have to think that this intake would make more power than any other simply because of the design. I have no proof, I can't honestly say that I have ever really felt a difference with any intake, other than sound.
    This intake is essentially a Volant that is made out of ceramic coated aluminum with a foil bubble insulated box and a clear window on top to view the filter. It is made with extreme attention to detail.

    The only downfall is that it cost $380. They also say that it only increases 11 HP and 5 tq. I honestly believe it will outperform any other no matter what they "claim".

    I recommend you check them out if you are looking for a CAI
