BBK cold air intake?

Has anyone purchased a bbk cold air intake for a v6 05-09? Im looking at buying one and the website says you get a 20 hp gain but i find that hard to believe. Any suggestions or input?

I had one for my 01... and it was a small gain. Definitely not 20 hp. Throttle was quicker and slightly better gas mileage. Maybe 7rwhp gain

Re: BBK cold air intake?

Power gains compared from new edge to s197 are completely different numbers. Most people get the c&c one or whatever its called. I'm not sure on a v6 but the v8's require a tune and since you use both you get a gain from the tune so its a kind of misleading advertisement.

New edge see no gains from a cai. However 05 and up do see some improvement but a tune is needed.... The computer runs a program. If you don't change the program you don't see any gains

Well it says this one doesnt require a tune for the gain which confused me because i know most do. But on americanmuscle.com they have a few that dont need tunes.
