Cold Air Induction Kits

Has anyone got a CAI kit for a AU 6cyl??? If you have some pics that would be good. I think they retail for around $330.

Re: Cold Air Induction Kits

Which type of "kit" are you talking about mate? Most people I know use an XR8 snorkel with the EF airbox lid and either a BA pipe or a mandrel bent stainless steel job.

Re: Cold Air Induction Kits

Well thats why im asking. I have the XR8 intake already. But i just went to an exhaust shop to get a stainless steel pipe to go from the airbox and they ordered me the whole kit, with a scoop that bolts onto the radiator and things like that.... Was just trying to see what i just bought thats all.

Re: Cold Air Induction Kits

Hmm seems like you might have to actually ask them about it mate, it might be something they have made up/sourced on their own.

Re: Cold Air Induction Kits

ok guys heres the verdict...

I got there and it was an SS induction which is almost the same as what i have, so i declined. The SS induction for the 6 cly is almost the same as what they come with. Instead im getting a pipe made up out of exhaust to replace that plastic pipe from the box to the throttle body. At least the new pipe will be the same size all the way through.

Thanks though to all your info & comments
