BOMZ Cold-air intake

Does anyone think that this is a good CAI for my 2006 GT? Ebay has them for 99 dollars plus shipping.

Thanks,
Firehawk536

Don't know anything about that brand but I'd be afraid of something that cheap...most reputable mfrs are selling them for substancially more than that and probably for a good reason ie; reaserch and devolopement, quality, warranty etc. Remember, you almost always get what you pay for. You may be paying for a big piece of foam up your throttle body...

Be forewarned: You get what you pay for. Any intake that you can use without a tune is pointless in terms of throttle response and HP gains.

There's not much you can screw up when making a CAI. It's simply a tube, a rubber elbow, rubber sleeves, clamps, a heat shield, and an air filter.

I'd stay away from anything with a metal intake tube though. They transfer more heat to the incoming air than plastic ones.

Actually there is a great deal you can screw up with a CAI. If the MAF housing is off even the slightest bit (sensor depth or angle) you could have all sorts of performance issues.

And don't get caught up in the metal vs plastic debate. IATs with metal tubes aren't significantly higher than with plastic tubes.
