I replaced my C&L with a JLT. I found my torque again!

I can accelerate in 5th gear at 1500 RPM without it shuddering and shaking. Take offs are easier and I don't have to rev it to get up the hill into my garage.

I had two different tunes in the Racer and while it went like snot after 400RPM, it was not too exciging from 1500 to 3000. The JLT give a much nicer powerband. It's all dyno butt however, I assure you that the highway pulls and the little incline into my garage are proof enough for me.

The JLT is a better design in my opinion in that the rubber boot that attaches to the TB is not joined by a secondary silicone ring. The C&L Street is a good unit, had one on my V6. I was not crazy about the racer though.

I think you'll be happy with the JLT as long as you don't run into the problem I had with the MAF housing separating from the tube. I'm waiting for my replacement this next week from Jay Tucker.

Your car was shuddering and shaking at 1500 rpm with the C&L racer CAI? More likely the tunes then the intake itself. I have that CAI and don't have any issues. Love it. And I've NEVER had to rev it to get up the hill into your garage... ;)

I did just the opposite. Removed the JLT and installed the C&L Racer. With the right tuning the C&L makes power all through the rpm! Did not like having a PVC pipe on my car.

So does the JLT, demolet, Powerhouse and just about every other high-end CAI

Damn, I just noticed a 1/4" + gap in mine. What do I do? I bought the unit from Evolution w/ a SCT II tuner. $75 for a new tube … WTF:sadcry:

I bought the racer for future upgrades and looks. All of them flowed very well. I even read the magazine article stl mentioned. I've never been happier with my Racer Intake. My future upgrades include stage 3 pnp heads and stage 3 cams. When I chose the racer I intened to feed it a bunch of air which should be one of the reasons you buy it for.

As for the driveability issues. I have had none with mine.

Hey Stl … if you see this … is this what happened to your JLT tube?

Ok, now I see... Mine had the gap too.
Hey stl … I can't win w/ a thing lately. The car should not be on my "things to do list" right now. Our boat takes up all spare change and time … LOL!
You called Mr. Tucker in the above post about the separation problem? What happened after the call? I sent an email much earlier this AM, but no response yet. I didn't buy it from JLT … Evolution. Thx for the time!
