CAI & Chip HP gain?

I just want to know how much horsepower and torque I would gain in my 00 V6 with a cold air intake and a bama 3 stage eliminator chip (the one on american muscle). How much gain would i see in each setting meaning the street, performance, and race settings?

Handheld is not "Better" than a Chip "Performance" wise, it's just more handy and easier to install and use/set up and load new tunes.

The tune's themselves are what make the difference; as to horsepower gain?
I am not sure, every car is different; but his 20Hp guess would probably be on a race tune.

I highly doubt our 3.8's would get a 20Hp boost from a cai and a tune.. maybe 12-15

The advantage of the SCT 4Bank is it can hold up to 7 tunes and can be changed on the fly(while driving if you want) no need to upload etc, the real downfall to the 4bank is updating it with new tunes. You'll need to mail it on or hit up a Dyno for ANY type of change.. Handhelds are the tuner type of choice for 96+ for convenience of updating..

No handhelds won't. Only the 4Bank with selector switch

I agree with Mustangman's estimate of a 20 hp gain from a CAI and Bama Custom Tune. We've seen anywhere from 15-25hp, it really depends on what intake you go with, the temperatures the day of the dyno, location etc..

Everyone has done a pretty good job of explaining the difference between the handheld device and 4-back eliminator chip. Deadspot was pretty spot on! The handheld device is very convenient for all users because it never has to come back to us. We can send you files/updates VIA Email and you're ready to go! The 4-bank eliminator chip will deliver the same tune, but anytime you need a revision or new file, you'll have to send the chip back to us to be updated.

I hope this helps! You really can't go wrong and I'm confident you'll be very happy with either device. Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance! Our Bama Performance tuning specialists are here in the building Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and Saturday 9AM-5:30PM EST. You can hit them up directly at 888.226.9764 and they'll get you squared away!
