Thinking about doing a shaker

I am thinking about doing a shaker hood scoop. I already have e JLT CAI. Ive been reading and it seems with the CAI it cannot force air into the engine... Obviously. Well would I be better off going back to the stock airbox and shaker with a tune or stick with the CAI and just not get the "Ram air" Feature? Thanks

Why not do both? Have the air from the shaker going to your JLT cai.

As long as you direct the air flow to the filter you will get the ram air effect, what little there is. I have the stock air box on my 2008 with a K&N drop in filter. I may add a CAI later on but I have been quite happy with the results of just adding a tuner to my shaker/stock air box setup.
In my opinion the Shaker just makes a Grabber Orange car look complete. Its worth it for the looks alone.

i agree, they do look great keep the cai too, you`ll still get better performance running the jlt, the extra air wont hurt either

on the $200, by the time i got my roush scoop painted, i have $300 into it, but i really like it alot, no complaints.

05 V6 auto,

The faster you drive the more air is forced to the filter.

Ram air is largely a myth. Consider that you can not *start* to compress air until aprox. mach .3
There may be *very* slight effects above 120 mph, but it would be not noticeable.

I would think 99.9% of the people adding a shaker hood are doing it for the looks. That would be my reason.
