Going from BBK CAI to JLT

My car is fully bolted and I was wondering if it would be worth it to go from a BBK CAI that doesn't require a tune to a JLT 3 CAI that does. Would it be worth the money and would I notice anything really??

Yes, it is definitely worth it and you will notice the power increase especially if you load a 93 octane racer tune.

To add to op... I too have full bolt on... and I currently run a gen 1 jlt... would it b worth it to trade you to a Gen 3 jlt? Would the car breath better and make a difference on performance?

Well the car is dyno tuned so I would have to have it retuned. Just wondering if the difference in performance would be worth buying the JLT and a retune.

Retune for a small mod like that should only run you $100 ... I'll never pay $300+ for a intake... if I go w a 3rd Gen I'll buy it used

Ya that's what I'm doing right now. But just need to be positive that it's worth it. If not I'll put my money else where

If your gonna run the car you'll see a difference on the time slip. If your not running it, your wasting your money. Your not gonna feel the difference .

I beg to differ, I noticed a big difference especially with throttle response. We are talking about roughly 20 to 30 WHP with a racer intake and tune.

He already has a dyno tune and Cai, maybe not the best Cai but he has one. So imo, a waste of money.

My bad, I didn't know he had a dyno tune. In that case it wouldn't be worth it unless he has a crappy tune. Which wouldn't surprise me, I know of a bunch of people that got better tunes from handheld tuners vs dyno's.

You mean an email tune? Because a handheld tuner is used in all cases whether it be an email tune or dyno tune.. And I had an email tune from bama before and in my opinion there's no comparison now with my dyno tune. My tuner knows his **** and the tune is spot on. There's nothing like a tune that's setup specifically for you car instead of an email tune that covers millions of other people that have the same mods as you..

I understand that email tunes are based on cars being ran on dynos also but it's not the same when you add all the factors in like how hot it was when the car was ran, what kind of dyno, etc. Not every car reacts the same all the time..

Not sure about op but I just have bama tune.... I'm at a stand still w mods... I'm thinking of just finding a good tuner and see what they can get out of my car as it sits.... I busted on a 04 zo6 today... I think it was a zo6 anyway... so she is running pretty good now, but I think a dyno tune would bring her to life

Most of the power from an intake is tune USUALLY but if he is 'full bolt' and looking to maximize the rest of his parts, he should upgrade. Selling the old one and buying used would help subsidize the new cost.

Get your car dyno'd and then put the JLT 3 on and report back your gains I think you'll pick up 5-6hp and plus it looks hella better

That is what I'm thinking... most performance mods in my mind... are partially a cosmetic mod too... the 3rd Gen look flipping sexy... 2nd best looking intake out there for our years

Ya that's what I was thinking.. About 5-10 HP difference max but the JLT does look a lot better than the BBK so maybe it is worth it.
