2014+ Intakes (CAI) & Air Filters


Recommended Posts

I cannot find any review on the GM drop in filter 84520923 other than it is outrageously expensive. Ok to assume that GM is just pricing because they can, and there are no tangible benefits to this drop in filter? My understanding it is disposable under regular intervals, not washable or extended run? Has anyone tried to measure this filter. I am very curious in OEM accy's as my prior experience with GMC dealers was abysmal to say the least and that if you do not want to take CAI and filters off the truck every time for service, you choice is to pay GM prices while truck is in warranty. 10% increase at 99.5% efficiency is easily beat by almost any other aftermarket intakes and filters. I have searched but cannot locate good analysis on this filter. 

 

Thanks for pointers!

Zero benefit other than not having to replace a paper filter every 24K. Most dry oil filters actually let larger particulates in the engine....IMO these products are snake oil and the benefits are no

Installed an S&B tonight. Install was easy. The air box is a bit bigger than stock, rests pretty close to the headlight plug. Have the butt dyno scheduled for tomorrow:).       Sent from

Steve you obviously have been drinking the juice from what other people have said. I did back to back test on a dyno on the same day with the stock setup and a airaid setup on my Vette, 6 runs total a

Thanks. Do you have a link to the results? I have been looking for data everywhere, I heard that it was good but Blackbear Performance told me that that Airaid Jr had zero impact on performance during their dyno tests of CAIs.

The Dyno results are very good with the stock OEM Airbox with a K&N drop-in filter and the Airaid MIT.

OK, now I get it, so this is stock filter with Airaid MIT but there used to be with K&N drop-in. Now I understand.

it's not showing the MIT & K&N drop-in data any longer...it's just showing the stock OEM set-up

the Air Raid JR works great, the reason there is no improvements is because there is a restrictor panel inside the OEM airbox next to the fender, so airflow will not jump up unless you pop this piece out.

American Trucks did a video showing the gains from an AirRaid MIT only on a 14 Silverado. Seemed to make a small difference. I am probably going to throw one on and keep my paper filter.

what's curve gain?

He explains it around the 0:45 sec mark of the video. Basically it's the gains in efficiency showing up with better throttle response, better acceleration. Since the top end HP doesnt change much just from the tube, this will be the difference you feel. It is the highlighted area in this picture.

when i get free time I can data log the intake manifold pressure and the MAF sensor, before and after.. with the stock vs the Air aid JR.  vs restrictor panel removed , then swap in a 6.2 TB and 6.2  manifold.  would make for a cool thread here one day
