Im going with the Airaid from American Muscle, Chris said it produced the most torque out off all the cai's :bigthumbsup

I've heard claims of the JLT making the most power of all, and its fancy carbon fiber, woo!

badass!

All depends if you want a tune or not. Only no tune is the Airaid with the insert and C&L.

CAI only has shown very minimal gains. Best is going to be CAI and tune. I would shoot for JLT.

Theres nothing wrong with it :bigthumbsup. I would have to do the rest of the kit that goes under the hood though. I plan on wrapping my intake tube anyway with exhaust wrap just like i did on my intake for my old gti. Keeps that pipe from getting super hot.

Thanks
 
I kind of like the Carbon look under the hood. I was also looking at the Steeda product. They have a great reputation, but use a different octane for their base line. Kind of deceptive. I will let you know how the JLT works.

JLT vs Airaid
 
I was reading the web sites, and it seems that American Muscle said that the Airaide and the tune give the best mid-range torque, which for the street is the best way to go. I like the JLT design better though. Decisions, decisions.

CAI inc is the best no tune CAI on our SS's. Do they make one for the 5.0?
