2011-2014 V6 3.7L Airaid Modular Air Tube

Has anyone seen/used one of these modular tubes on the V6?

Airaid - Product Search

Uses the stock airbox with a CAI-like tube to the throttle body. Interesting.

interesting, I like the idea of being able to use the stock filter which I know is more effective then any aftermarket one, I just got my jlt intake and the thing that impressed me the most was the sound our motor makes that you can't hear with the stock intake , I wonder if this still allows you to hear that sound even with the stock airbox on

It's kind of expensive for just a plastic tube, but I do like that it gets rid of the giant resonator and still uses the stock air box.

If I'm feeling adventurous I might pick one up.

I bought my Airaid CAI for sound. Any performance bump on the CAI is negligible. With the closed factory airbox, I can't imagine the tube does anything but suck money out of your wallet

+1 on sound. I scored my Airaid used for a bit more than that. If it gives good sound I'd like it but I'm THINKING the open box is louder. If I really cared about HP I would have gone with the V8.

side note: I wonder if the whistle some of us mention under acceleration is air going by the gasket that butts up against the hood due to the engine torqueing over........thoughts?

I'm with you... main thing for me is get rid of the ugly resonator and clean up the engine bay! And I like it keeps the stock air box!

Actually, I think this product makes a lot of sense. Test shows that when you are stuck in traffic, the CAI is a purely hot air intake, sucking all the hot air around your engine to you intake.

By replacing the accordion shaped tubes with this bigger diameter tuber will surely make it easier for air to flow to the TB.

the "sucking/whistle" noise you hear is the air going through the filter

Mine only makes a noticeable noise when I first touch the pedal, but it either becomes to quiet to hear or stops making the sound, it's not a constant noise, I just don't think any motor could produce enough suction to pull air through that seal against the hood

Yeah but as soon as you hit 10 mph that is all out the door. You CAI is getting all the air it can handle and at a hair more at ambient temp.

Keep us posted on the sound factor, I'm curious if it makes noise close to that of a cod air
