CAI Questions

Hi all. I'm up here in tropical paradise ( HA!) don't believe the propaganda! Anyway dropped into a little local speedshop and asked about CAI for my XR8. Of course I had a vision of the lovely little jobs you see under supercar bonnets sucking just off the top of the radiator. You know the ones, they're probably the ones you guys have got right? (Yeah O.K. I'm gettin' to it) So he tells me that those type are crap and probably lose 10 to 20 Kw's because they get too hot sittin' on top there like they do! He said they have an airbox temp approaching 45 C. Not exactly cold air then. So I thinks " so how come all the supercars are usin' 'em?" Any thoughts guys?

Re: CAI Questions

He's right and wrong, yes they do sit on top of the radiator and probably warm the intake air, but if you have a look at where the standard one is and how small it is you will realise that the ss induction one is a pretty good setup considering the lack of space for anything else. Plus %90 of the guys here are running them and dont seem to complain, if you want something different check out XRFPV'S setup in the fpv forum.

Re: CAI Questions
