Re: Just Installed Injen CAI: Thoughts and Pictures

I also have the Injen air intake. anyone bought a hydro shield cover for this setup and know the correct product number? Would be amazing!

Re: Just Installed Injen CAI: Thoughts and Pictures

Just installed mine tonight after picking it up from FedEx. Couldn't wait for them to deliver it. Noticed improved throttle response and nice deep growl at WOT. Super easy install. Took me 15 mins. Not a big fan of the temperature sensor grommet though.

Can't comment on before and after air temps as SRT Pages weren't available for the 'before' readings. Can't wait to get it on the road for tomorrow morning's run to work. Hope there's no cops around.

Re: Just Installed Injen CAI: Thoughts and Pictures

No one puts thermal wrap on these to try and keep the thermal air temp inside the CAI down ? Especially in Australia , if I was still living in Darwin I would do this as I can only imagine the heat soak at the traffic lights in the build up . I'm just asking out of curiosity

Re: Just Installed Injen CAI: Thoughts and Pictures

Dam shame they never done our CAI system on our SRT8 like they have done on the Hellcat I love the way they engineered the intake through the front grill to look like headlights and to get fresh air through the system

Re: Just Installed Injen CAI: Thoughts and Pictures

After running the Injen CAI for a week now I figured I'd go for a launch. Throttle response has been great, sound is great and I haven't noticed anything different with fuel economy. Air temp is about 5degrees different than ambient when moving at a decent speed. It was a Beautiful day about 20 degrees C. I was expecting the launch be only marginally stronger as I've been told not to expect much from a CAI but I was shocked a how much harder and stronger it pulls. It actually caught me off guard and maybe because I skipped lunch it gave me that tense feeling when you first hit the big fast descent on a crazy roller coaster or like when you get a hot lap in a V8 race car. It nearly brought a tear to my eye. Awesome. Unfortunately, I had to abort halfway because some dick in a Commodore decided to pull out in front of me even when sitting there watching the big 2500 kg white brick coming at him at nearly 100kph. As disappointing as it was and from my previous pre-CAI launches, I reckon I would've hit 0-100 in 4.7 secs easy. But then again I hit 4.7 before with the old box but this felt way stronger. Yeah, easy to say but the temp was right and I had less than just less than half a tank of BP Ultra. Unfortunately, I just filled the tank so I may have to repeat next week when I have less fuel in the tank and hope the temp is just right. Really looking forward to it.

Re: Just Installed Injen CAI: Thoughts and Pictures

Yeah bloody Commodores if they aren't trying to race you, they're spoilin' yer fun.

The only mods I can think of is to put a drill a couple of holes in the plastic piece right in front of the washer bottle. The other is to cut out some of the inner wheel well material and replace with some dustproof filter mesh to bring cold air in from the wheel well. We do generators for mine sites so it shouldn't be a problem but I think I'll leave it for it for now and enjoy the CAI for awhile. Next ill do the 180 T-stat and then go for a Diablosport Trinity next then maybe a Borla ATAK.

Re: Just Installed Injen CAI: Thoughts and Pictures

Thought about the 180 stat but not sure if it's needed for Australia conditions I thought it was more for winter conditions like they get in USA -30deg , am I wrong is the opposite way around
