How much extra power from CAI.
 
Hi All,

Anyone know how much extra power to expect from adding a CAI (same question for typical exhaust system too)?

And now the difficult question. I've read all about the ECU potentially cancelling out any performance gains from such modifications. If there really is more horsepower how and why could it not be "available"?

Thanks

Total waste of money, except for the extra noise..

Take a look at this..

I agree. After installing the Volant I didn't notice any difference. The noise sounds good though.

Thanks, that's a really well done utube. One question though - that was an intercooled turbo right? Would we expect a better power increase from a normally aspirated engine (since the turbo is already gonna be breathing in a lot more freely and cooler to start with)?

well i enough dyno runs to know that CAI actully work , i even fabricated some , one of them gave me 30whp which pumped the power from 190whp to 220whp on my nissan and last week i made another one for the 300c which gave me about 10whp through the whole curve , 15whp in some places and .3 sec of my 1/4mile time but still we saw alot of car lose power because of the MAF sensor on the jeep i think it would differ a little id say around 10whp which for me id say worth a shot

Wait for the tuning from diablosport. CAI and exhaust without tuning are just noisemakers at this point.

I did not feel any with my K&N but the sound! Oh yeah baby
