I just ordered a hi-flow intake from stillen. I was wondering how much of a performance difference, if any did it make since so many members say have them on their G's.:alien:

Sadly not that much ... it's probably gonna add maybe 2-4 HP.

I'd say that the Stillen intake or even JWT pop for that matter are just for engine bay looks and sound...not a bad investment into a car if you have the money to spend on it... but it doesn't subtract any real time from your run at the track

Well with proven gains, I wouldnt go that far and say they are purely cosmetic. As you get to other mods, ie: Header, Cams, Exhaust, etc...the advantage of a better flowing intake would be seen more at that point.

A nice little write up here

so the best thing is to get a K&N cone filter for your CAI ?

i agree, an intake on its own doesn't do much significant difference in power - u need the other upgrades 2 compliment it. as quickly as u get the cold air in, u need 2 get the hot air out...

the sound of the intake is just tooo sweet and slick....like a cool breeze of wind...
