Sve v sr proformance cold air intake for 94 gt

Which one is better. There the same exact price, but I herd the sr performance need a slight mod to a plastic thread for a sensor to fit perfect. There are no reviews on the sve one. Which one is better made, better quality filter element?

I'm not sure which is better but you don't want an underhood one, its put into the fender so that it doesn't suck in hot underhood air instead it pulls in cooler fresh air

+1. Fender well mounted CAI is the best choice.

There shouldn't be a big difference between the two. I would lean towards the one with the largest tubing, and/or a larger cone filter.

I had a BBK and it was OK. The MAC is ok or just make your own. The ones that put the inlet in the fender is what you want, if it doesn't its not a CAI its a HAI (hot air intake). The BEST ones are the ones that put the MAF in the fendewell. You have to lengthen some wires and the filer goes right on the MAF. Pretty sure you have to build one yourself for that setup but it isn't hard.

Seriously their pretty much all the same without a tune and even with a tune they are within +-1hp of each other so just pick which one looks best and makes you happy

Should I use rtv between the maf an the flange on the new cai. The instructions say no gasket needed but I think it would be better safe than sorry right??

On my old CAI, it had a seal between them but it was uneven on two sides so I took it off. Never had a problem.

94gtconvert,

The SR Performance CAI is a great kit. For the price and performance, it's hard to beat it. I I think you'll be more than happy with the SR intake, if you decide to go that route!

There's truly no need to add RTV sealant to the flange. There's more than enough seal for the CAI work flow air properly through the MAF. Plus, you don't want to risk any chemicals getting onto the MAF sensor.

Hope this helps!

Shane

Please elaborate on your position and why so many ppl relocate their MAF into the fenderwell.

I would pick whatever cai u think looks the best imo. There isnt really large gains to be had unless your choking down a high hp motor. Also dont worry about a tune with your cai. No fox cai will need a tune.

Thanks guys, I know sr proformance is a cheaper intake so if the flange comes warped witch is not unheard of I will make a silicone gasket, only because the sve intake from latemodlerestoration uses a gasket. Hey it wa the 4th of July sale the sr intake was 65 bucks while the sve is 85 so you can't really go wrong.

Or you could do a semi-custom one like mine.

C&L pipe to a custom fabbed sheetmetal air shield around the filter.



Although according to some ppl this is bad because the filter is right by the MAF. Yeah my car really runs terrible...

A cold air intake is a cold air intake in reality they probably take away a horse or two. I just want it so in the feature I can up grade my maf size and throttle body to make my 5.0 ready for a trick flow intake and some brodix heads and a stage 2 cam. Then the cai will be a horse power adder in that case. Also I like the custom intake you guys have, the filter is much larger than mine lol; you get what you pay for. In my opinion airaid is probably the best Brand and steeda and bbk a close second k&n is overpriced for what it is.

Airfilters especially cheap ones create turbulence, and the farther the sensor is from the filter the more accurate (unless MAF was designed as a filter on MAF)
