Cold air intake

Looking at getting a CAI kit for my 13 GT. What kits are best? And do you have to do a tune with a CAI and axle back exhaust? Car is brand new and the idea of flashing the ECM terrifies me. I'm not looking to race her, she's my daily driver. Maybe I'll do a tune when the warranty is up, but I'd rather not even risk it before then.

Airaid makes a nice one that doesn't require a tune...I'm like u I was not wanting to void my warranty either...but I went ahead and got a steeda cai and a sct tuner from American muscle. ..and I love it really made a big difference. .

+1 I'm rockin the Steeda + tune as well!

If you are wanting to get the most out of your warranty, I'd say skip on the CAI for now and get yourself a catback or axelback exhaust. In my opinion, if it doesn't require a tune, it doesn't make a significant difference in performance.

The Steeda Cold Air intake indeed requires a tune ... if you are looking for a non tune CAI ... there are other great brands out there.

When you tune your car with Steeda ... you have nothing to worry about. We have 0 issues tuning cars (0 issues is a real number, no warranty claims/denials/or engine failures). We know these cars inside and out and our tunes are very safe.

If you would like to hear more details regarding out tuning process then you can you reach me at tim@steeda.com. Tuning and a CAI will yield you the most gains ... a CAI alone will get you about 9-12HP.

Best Regards,

TJ

C&L makes an excellent CAI that has a removable aluminum sleeve for simple plug and play and does not require a tune. When you're ready to tune, simply remove the sleeve and get a bit more air. I have it in my 11, not 100% sure if its avail for the 13, I would assume so. That being said, its hard to beat the stock CAI.
