Airaid Intake

Well I just ordered an Airaid intake. I hope it gives a few more ponies and a couple more MPG. I wasn't going to, but every car I have ever owned ended up with a CAI of some sort, so I thought I may as well keep up the tradition.

Airaid is a good make, and anything is an improvement over stock.

Good to hear positive comments. I have been reading other comments at other sites and it is a split verdict on whether these things make a positive difference.

Well put it in today. Took a little bit under a half hour in the driveway. Pretty straightforward.
Gives it a bit of a growl jumping on the go pedal but the butt dyno can't feel a difference. I do however notice the throttle response is better under normal taking off from stops. Feels smoother as well.

If you put on a better exhaust as well you will notice a difference, I put on a cai in january and it made abit of difference in mileage.

Thats my next mod. I have looked into a Magnaflow and there are 2 sets. One has a dual outlet with the pipes coming out the rear and a single outlet out the rear/side.

I have a trailer hitch though and without knowing for sure, it appears the hitch will interfere with the dual setup.

Anyone have experience with the dual/hitch combo?
