Air raid is good then cause they have a insert that does not require a tune, but can be removed later on when you get a tune

Just get the combo now, or save up for it.. CAI without tune won't gain you anything noticeable at all.. Plus you will save some money buying the combo

I talked to am about the one I posted... It is by far the best for hp out of all the popular brands... I don't feel like typing why... But bama and am both said the ram air front mount intake has best performance gains...

The tune cai combo is not that big of a deal... At all... Gears is a fun purchase, I really loved lowering the car... Let's not forget adding a cat back of some sort (including off road x or h) I'm hoping the long tubes will b my favorite so far

Really? CAI /tune is the first thing anyone should get. They increase intake, HP, torque and get the tuner for future mods. Then you say gears after giving Basohol crap for suggesting Gears on a different thread.
A little contradicting?
Then as always you end up talking about you. Lowering and exhaust have nothing to do with his question about CAI.
It's great that you've modded your car like you have, but can't you just help the op out and give good advice? It's all about helping people out here.

You'll be happy, the intake doesn't do much it's all in the tune, idk about the air raid but my JLT 3 is very loud, which i like, sounds sorta like a BOV when your switching gears haha

Now what's next? Haha

Yea I passed one up 3 days ago for $350 only problem I hear w that intake is if you have just bolt on power u will lose quite a bit of power down low... I know I did w the cmdp... Supposedly the frpp intake is stock intake w cmpd and can "hold" a little but more air

Either way that thing is sexy!!

Re: Any suggestions on CAI!

In my opinion the CAI is the first mod you should do. But like everyone says, without the tune there's not much diff. So get the combo and you get the SCT tuner for future use. Then I would go either gears or headers or both next.
