AFE CAI

I see American Muscle has the 54-11982-P AFE CAI for 5.0 11-12 (not in stock) but as new for $179.

Afe says, no tune required for 22hp and 27LbFt

Anyone have any thing to add on this?

33% increased air flow over the stock tube?

Anyone?

Save your money. Stock cold air is fine.

Agree. No tune CAI's are a waste of money! Unless you just want that snazzy look under the hood.

I can guarantee you, without hesitation, that this is all Bravo Sierra. Save your money.

Well I'm assuming the "no tune" CAI's give minimal gains around 5-10 HP at best, am I correct? Is that the case for "tune required" CAI's? Am I getting some power from the "tune required" ones? Or is the tune doing everything? Even on the factory airbox?

I'd say at best a tune required intake gives your 5-10 and a non tune intake gives you 1-3

Most of your gains come with the tune ... since you cant run a tun-required intake without a tune, it's almost impossible to determine how much you gain. I will tell you that many people without CAIs running tunes are doing just as well in the 1/4 as people with them. They look and sound cool, but like axlebacks do jack **** for performance.

Yea I figured, its mostly looks and sound... I just installed my steeda CAI last night, I wanted to start the tune as well but it was late and I didn't wanna piss off neighbors... plus it was rainy and crappy out, so hopefully later today when I'm done working, I think its gonna clear up and hopefully I can finally start the tune process... this is my 1st time so I hope all goes well
