Most CAI's show pretty much no hp gain on the dyno but when combined with an actual dyno tune or handheld tuner most if not all of the gains are actually attributed to the new tune . Can an experienced tuner find you 20+ hp , some do however expect to pay ~ $400 for a tune/tuner .

So it's a good deal , it will get you as much hp gain as a $200 CAI , somewhere between 0-2 whp .

I have that same cold air intake and it heatsoaked pretty quickly after installing, which makes it look terrible, and the bracket on the fender wall is rusting...spend your money on a nicer one.

+1 the above posts, you def will not gain 27 horsepower but throttle response will approve and they look nice under the hood. They also give a smother path for the air to travel in comparison to the stock intake. I personally think they (cold air intakes) are worth it as long as you buy them knowing you won't see as much horsepower as advertised.

Good luck!

I bought the airaid Cai off americanmuscle even tho it was 230$, it still looks so much better, and I don't really like chrome Cai. Mines made of high grade abs plastic so it doesn't absorb near as much heat as a metal one does.

If I was getting one I would get the JLT one for the same reasons posted above about the metal ones compared to the plastic ones!
