I got an e-mail from a friend with the attached link earlier today for an AFE Cold Air Intake.

Now, as I continually say, I'm not trying to resurrect the CAI debate. I just want to know what the thing is supposed to do and how it supposedly operates. Some sort of ram air? Anyone else ever seen it?

That's a CAI for the latest Space Shuttle. Good for at least 60,000 hp just off idle. (The sticker that undoubtedly comes with it is worth another 25 HP on Saturday night at the Burger Doodle.)

LOL

I figured as much. Just seems ridiculous in design, and rather pricey... Think they're going for 'expensive must mean it's good'?

Probably. And anyone foolish enough to spend money on that junk will SWEAR that they can feel the difference.

P.T Barnum was right.

That's just flat out stupid looking.
