Why sr? It's has a smaller tube than airaid and jlt plus it doesn't need a tune.

Just because its a smaller tube than the others doesn't mean it's not get get just as much air. More air comes from the throttle body and then on. All the intakes do the same thing.

If all intakes do the same thing then why do they have the airaid cai and the airaid race cai

I don't know why do they? Is there proof that one is better than the other?

Every company that makes a CAI says they have the best CAI they will also have some graph that proves it. I have a K&N CAI and I love it. I had a BBK CAI and I loved that one too. Hahaha

Again your engine is only gonna take in so much air. The bigger the tube isn't always best. Only thing that can make the tube better is the design of it the make the air flow better. The next step is a bigger throttle body. To make MORE air come in.

I have a jlt series 3
as long as it is a plastic or composite tube.
I really don't see them being more than 1 or 2 hp apart from one another.

The regular airaid has an insert that is in the tube so you don't have to have a tuner. But when you get a tuner you can take the insert out. The race one doesn't have an insert so you must have a tuner.

I have the airraid also and absolutely love it but i have heard that there isn't much difference in them and that it's mostly about the tune

I have the JLT 3 series and i really like it! And actually tube size does matter, the more power you are making or wanna make in the future the bigger your tube needs to be.

Actually not, it's all about the dynamics for both (air/fluid) and in our case air. bigger is not always better, especially for a car that might be n/a or just plain stock. size does matter but why would you want a huge cai on a n/a or stock car when there isn't enough velocity to get the most out of that huge cai? again dynamics, you could make more power from a smaller I.D. Cai using a velocity stack at the filter causing the Venturi affect. it's a touchy subject and I'm not stepping on your toes bro, this is just what I've learned building and dynoing motors for the last 9 years for karts and late models lol.

I understand if he just wants a cai and exhaust ect then no need for a big cai. But my car isn't n/a so i had to get a bigger one to get enough airflow. Just throwing it out there if he has bigger plans for it not to waste the money and have to buy 2 like i had to lol

of course, I completely understand. once you have such generation for bigger air flow by all means go for it, but if its just a n/a car then its pointless, to an extent to try to get the biggest cai on there. kinda like putting 4" exhaust on a 90hp cavalier hahah.
