  1. What do you guys think? It's not as loud as a full aftermarket exhaust would be but I think it sounds pretty good for the money I paid.

  6. I have a gently used K&N air intake with the stainless tube for sale in the Cleveland, OH area. It fits the 3.6l Canyon's and Colorados. I only put 6000 miles on the filter before I sold my truck. Definitely improved throttle response and made my Colorado sound mean. Asking $100 and local pickup only.
  7. I currently have the AIRRAID MIT tube with airraid filter installed on my 5.3 but am thinking about replacing it with a S&B intake (potentially another brand complete intake) and am wondering how much of a sound increase I will see. Im a firm believer that loud pipes save lives and would go for a muffler delete but theyre illegal in OH and the cops around me don't have a lot to do. On my Colorado, I installed a K&N and the sound increase was impressive and way greater then the increase on my sierra with the MIT tube but I wasn't impressed with the weather strip seal to the hood and like how the S&B intake has a cover on top of the filter but is way more open then the stock box. Any thoughts?
  8. March 1-7 all aFe Momentum intakes are $50 off! Contact us for any further available discount availability and all intake models that are not presently listed on our website.
  9. We have an aFe intake on hand, great price, ready to ship! 54-74103. PM me here, or email us [email protected]
  10. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 3/30/2016 Are you looking for an easy to complete home project that will give your new Silverado or Sierra a little kick in the pants? Cold Air Inductions has an intake system designed for your truck that’s not only easy to install but adds a custom look under the hood, too. Before vs After Product: CAI Cold Air Intake System for 2014-2016 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra with the 5.3L V8 Manufacturer: Cold Air Inductions Suggested Retail Price: $429.99 Product Website: CAI - 2014-2016 5.3L Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Intake System (Textured Black Finish) Features +12-horsepower +6 ft-lbs of torque Up to +3 MPG increase in fuel economy Aluminum Insulated Air Box Removable Box Lid with filter viewing window 4-inch thermal coated intake tube High-performance air filter Made in the USA No tune required Unboxing Our CAI Intake System came in securely shipped in a single cardboard box. The entire intake came in only a few pieces and without any small or loose parts. We found the items inside packaged well and free of damage. Inside we found the cold air intake box, a black coated metal snorkel tube, a rubber joint with vacuum hose hookups, and a pre-oiled cone filter. All hardware was already assembled or attached to the parts. Installation We installed this intake on a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado with the 5.3L V8. If you know how to work a screwdriver, a socket/ratchet combination, and are not afraid to have to climb into the hood of your truck, we think you would have no problem completing this installation at home in your own driveway. A topside creeper would make this easier but is not required. A tool set that includes hex bits and socket extensions is required. We started off the process of removing the stock air box and plenum by disconnecting the negative terminal from the battery. We then removed the brace that runs over the battery to gain more room to work and carefully pulled the mass airflow sensor (MAF) out of the factory snorkel. Do not disconnect the MAF sensor. We next disconnected the two stock vacuum hoses that run into the valve covers. We also loosened the clamp that holds the stock intake to the throttle body and removed the resonator box. Then we snuggly pulled up to pop the factory air filter box out of place. We also transferred a rubber grommet from the factory box to the CAI intake shroud. This was perhaps the most difficult part of the install. We eventually had to cover the rubber grommet with dawn detergent to be able to push it in the hole on the shroud. It’s a snug fit, so be careful not to bend anything. The CAI air filter box then simple snaps back into the location where the factory air box was removed. We then secured the new rubber connection joint to the throttle body and reconnected the vacuum tubes to the tops of the valve covers. After slipping on the intake tube and attaching the cone air filter, we were nearly complete with our install. After carefully reinstalling the MAF sensor and applying the CAI Decals, we reattached the intake lid. After reinstalling the cross brace and reconnecting the negative terminal of the battery, we were done. Our total install time was approximately 30 minutes. Here lies the remains of the stock intake system. Results It only takes a turn of the key to hear the difference between the factory intake and CAI’s cold air system. The cold air intake offers a deeper, throatier sound at full throttle compared to stock. At idle, there’s no difference. On the road this Silverado sounds like a new beast. Air intake noise is much louder and right after pushing the peddle down you can hear a rush of air enter the plenum. While the stock intake is designed to hush the sound of air rushing through the throttle body, CAI’s cold air intake system accentuates it. As a result, the engine sound that comes from under the hood is slightly deeper, has more attitude, and sounds louder. So, does a cold air intake make any difference with how your truck performs? Since we didn't do before and after dyno tests we are not in a position to substantiate any claims of improved performance. There are many independent tests and even members here that have indeed seen horsepower and torque improvements when dyno'd. MPG numbers are a lot more difficult to test, but there are many people who claim improved mileage. What we will say is that as users of various cold air intake systems over the past few years, we have enjoyed benefits from every single one, regardless of which vehicle they’ve been installed on. The easiest difference to spot with the CAI system is how it makes the engine on this 2015 Chevrolet Silverado pop! The stock factory plastic is dull and covers up much of the engine. The CAI intake is slim, well designed and made from quality materials. The clear plastic window shows almost the entire air filter, making inspection a snap. Conclusion Are you ready to make some small changes to your truck that give it a more custom look? Maybe you want your engine to be a little louder and have a touch of attitude at the same time. Perhaps you just hate the look of the stock intake and want to spice up your engine bay. The CAI Intake system solves those issues and gives you a quality made-in-America intake that you can install yourself. This product was provided in exchange for our objective and unbiased review.
  11. I'm going to be lifting (w/ 35s) my 14 sierra 5.3 ccrb. I would like some input/ advise/opinions/experience on cai, headers, exhaust and a tune, to make up for power loss from the lift. I have a 3.42 gears. Thank you.
  12. 325 PayPal, or 275 PayPal gift shipped 2 day priority. Mails immediately . Around 10k on it. Never cleaned the filter as it’s not even dirty. But I’ll clean it and oil it before shipping as well.
  13. New to forum so sorry if this topic has been discussed in detail already. Just bought a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 with the 6.2L. I wanted to get your advice and feedback around if a cold air intake is helpful to the engine for HP / TQ./ MPG and just better engine longevity? Any one add a CAI to a 2014-15 1500 with 6.2 if so what kind of gains / losses did you find? Pictures? Recommendations for which brand / model to go with for the Gm 6.2? Thank you,
  14. Hi Everyone, Just recently picked up a 17' Sierra Denali with the 6.2L and I'm already thinking about a Exhaust, CAI, & Tune. Kind of been eyeing up the SLP Stage 2 Performance Pack (http://www.slponline.com/product/620075--.html). Has anyone else put this combo on there truck? If so, do you like it? Regret it? etc... Any input is appreciated. Thanks!!
  15. Selling my Airaid MXP intake off my 2014 Silverado 5.3. Only has about 13K worth of drive time on the intake. Will include all hardware that it came with from Airaid. I will not be removing it til Thursday when my new intake comes in. Asking $250 shipped (firm) to the lower 48 states and will ship in original box it came in. Retails for damn near 400 dollars so low ballers don't contact me. PM me for fastest response. I will clean it up and re-oil the filter before I ship. Will fit 2014+ models with 5.3. Not sure about larger motors. http://www.4wheelparts.com/Performance-Parts/MXP-Series-Synthaflow-Cold-Air-Dam-Intake-System.aspx?t_c=74&t_s=6&t_pt=4555&t_pn=EVE200-285
  16. I picked up a Volant 15260 for my '08 2500HD, 6.0L with mechanical fan. Volant also sells a 152606 for the truck with the only difference being the filter element. Volant offers a "PowerCore" filter that does not get oiled (Pro 5 filter) and is advertised a lasting longer and performing better. Between the price difference and many an extreme dusty drive, I opted for the Pro 5 filter. The main thing that attracted me to Volant was the box has a cover instead of full open. Like the stock box, the Volant draws air from the inner fender only the hole is larger, AND it also pulls from the front of the box plus another opening in the bottom. Volant sells a down tube that attaches to the bottom of the box and pulls air from behind the bumper as well - I did not opt for this. The install is seemingly pretty straight forward. Taking out the factory unit: Remove the engine cover to access the factory intake tube clamp, remove the MAF housing and set it aside, remove the intake tube, remove the box, and remove the base plate that the box sits on. Installation of the Volant: Bolt in the box (uses holes from OEM base plate), install the filter, install the MAF using the OEM coupler and clamp, install the Volant hump hose coupler (silicone) to the MAF housing and clamp, install the special Volant coupler to the engine side of the intake tube, connect the tube to the hump coupler and secure, connect the tube to the engine intake and secure. *** I did have to trim the fan shroud where the intake tube meets - photos have one shot with the tube pressing against the shroud, and one after it was trimmed *** The issue I ran into is the hump hose is too short. I ended up having to undo all the clamps and run everything "long" by only keeping enough mating surface to cover the clamps on both ends of the MAF housing, and on the hump couple to the intake tube. I took the issue to Volant and they responded by saying the hump hose only comes in one size and the I needed to attach everything in the order in which I already did. My guess is if I stretch the hump -- essentially flattening it to extend the coupler --it may hold, but that is more pressure than I want to put on the clamps plus it does not account for engine torque (would be maxed out on length). For now I am just going to monitor the connections. If they move I will pick up a length of turbo coupler and make my own. Using a DiableSport T1000 to monitor the intake and ambient air temp, over some mixed stop-and-go, with state roads and temps in the upper 90's, the intake temp averaged 6 degrees above the ambient air temp. Driving on the Interstate in low 70 degree temp, the intake was 3 degrees above ambient air. I think both of those numbers are very respectable. I put the stock tune back on the truck to test performance. Engine load barely touches 69% just as it shifts at 6k RPM with WOT. This is pretty normal for my truck with the stock tune. I do not have logging data from the stock tune to compare it to, and I am moving from a stock tire to 35's along with a new custom tune, so the engine load is really all I can point to for hard data. It does feel like the truck revs out a bit quicker, and you can hear a bit more noise from the engine compartment. Other observations: The filter did not come pre-oiled. Volant says the replacement filters are pre-oiled, so I expected the kit filter to be as well. The special coupler for the engine intake looks pretty decent, but you really need to crank on the clamp to get the slotted tube to bite on the engine intake, which deforms the coupler - a lot! Backing the clamp off just slightly makes the coupler look better but also allows the intake tube to slip. The airbox lid uses a Phillips screw driver instead of a torx head. No biggie either way, just a "huh" thing. The window on the airebox lid is nice. The OEM airbox tray says "DIESEL" so I guess someone did an engine swap (yes, before someone comments, it is sarcasm) $25 rebate does not suck. Photos attached...

  21. I have an AIRAID 200-985 MIT intake tube for sale that was on my 2014 Silverado 1500 5.3L for a week. I still have original box, instructions, stickers, and parts and pieces. Pretty much brand new. $100 plus shipping or best offer. Please PM to me if interested. So, why am I selling this? The CAI is just not my cup of tea...I tried the Volant unit and returned it because I didn't like the quality and it was too loud for me. Then I tried the AIRAID MIT because of other members recommendation...It is a nice quality unit and installs nicely. It is not as loud as the Volant, but it seems that all of these units have the same issue for me. There is a louder noise during acceleration than the stock air box which I am used to from other vehicles that I had them on, but there is a "growl" when mildly pressing on the gas pedal which I find annoying. So, I am back to the stock air box. BY THE WAY, I have a Banks Ram-Air that is also listed here to sell. I didn't install it, and it is another great quality product, but just decided the CAI is not my cup of tea.

  24. Good afternoon guys, my name is Bill and I am with Cold Air Inductions Inc., we are a cold air intake manufacturer located in Michigan. Our company is still ironing out the details regarding our vendor account here, so until that is wrapped up I just wanted to personally introduce myself to you all since I will be the guy representing our company here. My father currently works for GM, and my grandfather retired from Cadillac, so Chevy runs deep in my blood so to speak I've always been an auto enthusiast, and have always been a big "Truck Guy". I've owned probably about 10 GM Trucks over the years, from lowered to lifted, and am currently building a 91' S-10 powered by an LM7 V8 for a fun little street/strip project. My favorite GM truck to date was my 2001 Champagne colored Sierra 2500HD, I've also had an 8.1L 2500HD Silverado which was pretty sharp. Once our supporting vendor account is set-up, I look forward to becoming a trusted source for information regarding our Cold Air Intake systems, we sponsor many forums and I have a great reputation for being a very "customer service oriented" individual, which I plan on carrying over to here! In the meantime, I plan on taking a look around and hopefully getting to know you all better! Thanks and take care! - Bill H. Cold Air Inductions Inc.
