    Anybody makes a CAI for a 2012 SRX?

    Been searching the internet and coming up with nothing. I see them for the 3.0 but not the 3.6. Any suggestions? I know they don't do much in terms of power but I like the sound. I have had them on every vehicle I have purchased since the Mid 90's. Thanks for the help.

    I guess the answer is no!!! Maybe I will have to make a custom one from a Spectre kit.

    that's a shame (as i have a 2012 newly purchased also). i have found on previous vehicles that a CAI seems to help fuel economy a bit when the engine gets to breath a bit better. i would be interested in one also should someone come up with a solution to the OP question.

    thanks

    Wonder how much modification it would take to get a 3.0 version to work on our 3.6? Anyone tried that? Can't believe our 3.6 have been out for 2+ years and no one has even tried a CAI. Maybe I will get motivated and try it in the near future.......

    A lot of work would go into a DIY intake. Testing, dyno time, etc....

    Can't just slap one on as it affects airflow around the MAF.

    But I'd love to see you succeed and post the results to the forum!

    Anyone out there that can post a good pic of their 3.0? What I looked at on Google images is that the two engines look pretty close to each other. So I think the 3.0 kit will work with maybe just some slight adjustments. I made many DIY kits for my vehicles years ago and never had a problem. As long as I can get the air box to fit, the intake tube itself should not be that difficult to modify. Now I just need to find a deal on a 3.0 kit......
