I have the JLT and love it! The sound alone is enough to put one in. But.... You will need a tuner like the Diablo or SCT. The extra air will make the engine run lean, as with most of the other kits out there. The increase from the tune and the JLT is incredible, it feels like a whole new car. I picked up quite a bit of HP and TQ with both. Sitting at 285rwhp and 310rwtq with the canned JLT tune. Picked up even more across the board with a custom tune from BamaChips.

I agree with you (unless you're going to add a 200 shot, or something crazy hot) but most on here disagree and will now beat us in the head... :sterb:Hal900x said:Is it just me, are is a CAI with a metal intake tube a bad idea? Hrrm, heat-conductive metal for my airflow...how bout...no? Which of the CAIs is made with good old heat-resistant ABS? Besides the stock one, that is.
Anyone know for sure how much HP you get from just dropping in a K&N filter into the stock box?redfire GT said:I agree as well. I was told or read (dont remember which) that you can get the same gains from adding a k&n high flow filter to the stock air box and to save the cash for a 62mm TB mod???
I saw one with the K&N drop-in plus axle-backs for the grand today of almost 7 RWHP before tune, total of 19 after tune...KiLLeR_WoMBaT said:Anyone know for sure how much HP you get from just dropping in a K&N filter into the stock box?
It is actually pretty much exactly 50/50... with the tune providing more drivability / 'fun-factor' gains and the CAI ALL of that sweet sweet intake GROWL!Hal900x said:I am willing to bet that for most people, their first tune comes as the result of a CAI installation. The reason I mention this is because I think it is that tune that grants all this HP, not the CAI itself.
I have the older kit as well (63 Series Aircharger) and I'm sticking with it. I think the extra bucks for the polished is a waste -- the black looks better.sandyman said:I have the older K&N and was going to ask them what they would charge just for the polished piece. Maybe that is a bad picture or me or whatever, it just doesn't look that good to me. Guess I'll just stay with the plastic pos.
