What would a good cold air intake be for my 2013 V6 auot with performance package?

I have a stock v6. I am wanting to buy a cold air intake. I've looked at roush, k&n etc. What will give me the best performance? Also will it void my warranty?

You already have a cold air intake. A new one will make some woosh sound and look cool at car shows with the hood popped.

whatever one you buy used for 1/2 price as long as it's for sound/looks only. Mine is an Airaid.

it should NOT affect wtty unless your dealer is a ______

As others have stated, don't buy it to expect any significant gains in performance, as you won't get it. If you want some additional "woosh" noise as au01st mentioned, buy a used one. That way you won't have wasted as much money.

Zero performance gains, better looks maybe, potential for a hotter air charge and actual power LOSS if its a crappy one.

The newer "CAI/TUNE" packages that are sold are kind of... misleading. People experience these big power gains after installing the CAI and flashing the tune but everything they are feeling is from the tune.


edit: If you are thinking of installing a CAI without a tune then don't, you'll **** up the stock tune and it'll run like ***.

You already have a cold air intake. Wasting money on an aftermarket one will give you a HOT air intake that won't do anything for performance. It may impress women or 16 year old kids by its looks though.
You want performance? Spend $400+ on a tune, but then....stand by for warranty claim denials.

Lol yeah that's something else. They know if the car has been tuned, even if you flash it back to stock. So if you have motor work under warranty and they check it...
