If it makes you feel any better I could lie to you and tell you that a CAI would add 50hp to your car and that your friends and every legit source you found that said CAI doesn't give you any performance gains is totally wrong... But I would be lying and you would spend $200 for maybe 1-2hp.

It's all sound and looks plus 1-2hp. I bought one because I could afford it and I wanted the intake induction sound over the OEM unit.

1-2 HP. It is someones opinion if it is worth it or not. But, the 5.0 has the stock intake designed well. An open filter will do the trick. But a full intake will dress up nice.

The TUNE does that.

If you want the looks and sound of an open air CAI then get it. Just don't get it thinking it will decrease your eta by a significant amount or net you a buncha ponies.

The CAI all depends on the extent to your mods. I guarantee you if I throw the stock one back on I will loose power.

^^^^^^exactly^^^^^^
The CAI's do more than what a lot of sheeple have been repeating over and over. For instance, if you are supercharged (centri), the CAI will give you at least a 25rwhp difference over the stock air box. That is the top end of impact a CAI will have, down to a car with no mods making only a few HP difference. The CAI will have a range between those two extremes depending on your mods. Saying the stock air box is just as good as a CAI is wrong. Simple way to look at it is look at how many inches of filter surface each has. One flows a lot easier and better thus, the more air you move, the more efficient the CAI will be over a more restrictive stock air box.

That is true. But 1-2 or even 3 HP, the gains vs stock intake are negligible. You can gain 3 WHP with a CAI on a 5.0 then dyno immediately again and show 0. The main difference between the stock box and CAI is an open filter element. Neither are CAI.

Like Rapinator said, it ALL DEPENDS ON YOUR MODS
Our car, CAI has a huge impact on HP, on a car that has no other mods, not so much. Aftermarket intakes do make a difference in sound and looks.

But yes and I'm re-suggesting that Rapinator and Deerslayer are correct I only assumed at this point not much additional mods are planned. But any additional mods past bolt ons like FI need open air CAI for sure.

Is there any way to just get rid of the stock air box and filter? And buy a cone filter that fits the factory piping?

Because when I look under my hood, then look at intakes on the internet, it looks like the filter is the only difference...............
A tube is a tube that allows air to flow thru it... not that hard of a game.

well, that'd be replacing a cold air intake with a hot air one...that can't be good. heck, some of the "CAIs" out there for this car actually do this, too.

The Steeda unit comes with the velocity stack ... air is air ... but how that air flows to the engine is key.

This velocity stack serves multiple purposes – primarily to ensure a smooth airflow across the Mass Air sensor so that its readings are not compromised, and also to provide a denser flow of fresh incoming air. Sure it costs much-much more to include a part of this design, yet alone a part made of aircraft grade aluminum, but when you set out to design and engineer the best CAI possible, this is an example of the key details and expense you include in your product.

Securely fitted to the velocity stack is a durable silicone connector with dual stainless steel band clamps that attaches our roto-molded inlet tube with our proprietary cool-tube technology. Together these components provide an extremely smooth transition for incoming air to enter the engine’s intake manifold.

Our unit also seals to the underside of the hood keeping unwanted hot air out.

You can read more about our CAI here: Why Steeda Cold Air Intakes Blow Away The ‘Competition’ « Steeda Blog

TJ

That's what the pictures look like most of the aftermarket intakes do!!!

I thought that was the cool thing to do :-/

I am glad this topic came up. Wow Steeda. and thank you TJ for coming on here. I cannot believe I haven't looked further into this. I've had a boss 302 plenum sitting on my tool box at work for 2 months now hesitating on getting the "convenient" "other company" tunes for life that a lot of people are having issues with. I am about to jump on getting Steeda tunes with x4 handheld and an intake. Question though and this is just to make sure. I do need to order the boss intake for a 2012 or 13 since 14 boss doesn't exist? I have a 2014 gt/cs

We are still in the process of updating our website & the 2013 Boss CAI will indeed work on the 14 with the Boss Plenum.

What is your email address ... you can send me a note to tim@steeda.com & i can put you in contact with one of the sales reps to help with your order & provide full support.

Best Regards,

TJ
