Hey you have the stillen one? How does it sound good?2002G20Racer said:I would also recomend a Hot Shot CAI. The only reason I didnt get one was we get light street flooding around here and the instalation is more involved then the Stillin Pop.
This is not true, just like 93InfG20 said, the Stillen Hi flow intake (I believe the same unit as the JWT Pop charger) does not produce more power than the CAI. The CAI has two big advantages. First one is cooler air entering the engine, this alone makes more power, and the second is resonance tuning. The length of the CAI helps make the most power (along with the diameter of the cai piping). The manufacturers are actually able to tune using the resonance of the intakes to affect the powerband. There has been quite a bit of testing, and the CAI does make more power. The newest CAI, the AEM unit is supposed to make the most power yet, but the availability is still limited on these units i believe. I personally have the Hotshot CAI, and i've been extremely happy with it.Danny said:My friend has a cai intake system and he didn't like it so he changed it to stillen it's cheaper and gives more power.
Awesome! =) How much did you pay for yours?BritCG20 said:yes, the HS sounds really cool and is really loud if you get it to the high rpms. But it's not much harder to install than any other CAI for our cars. The only difficulty is making that hole bigger next to the battery. (You'd better have a dremel handy). But it's worth all the trouble.=)
