Found this install video when searching around for any reviews on the CAI. Maybe helpful for someone. 

 

They are claiming ~15hp boost from the CAI, anyone install one yet?

I have one sitting in the box on my work bench. No time to install it yet.

Installed it. Not a fan of how the lid just pushes on and is held on by three plastic pegs that go into rubber grommets. Definitely gets an intake noise that’s right on the verge of being too loud.

Yeah, I noticed that in the video, a clamp or something would have seemed better. 

 

Sound wise, can you compare it to the 14-19 LD models? I also wonder if it the way it's angled and being closer to the drivers side affects the noise level.

I have nothing to compare it against. I came from a 2000 Z71 Tahoe that I kept bone stock and drove to death.

My 16' was pretty loud, but as I said it was opposite the engine bay so it was louder to the passenger. It was quiet at cruising but on hard shifting it was pretty loud. The cat back I added later kinda balanced that noise out.   

 

Regardless, enjoy the new toy! Hopefully you will feel some gains! I know the tech on my 16' said he could tell a difference compared to his truck during a ride along.

The butt Dino definitely feels gains. It is quiet at cruising and sounds good when getting into the throttle hard. 

 

DFM oddities are amplified with this intake and the GM performance exhaust. Hopefully Range Technology is successful with the DFM disable. I’d definitely buy one and just unplug it if I go on a long road trip.

I had one on my 2017 5.3.  I won't do it again on my 2019.  First of all, it's loud, and not in a great way IMO.

 

At first it felt like it gave my truck some extra punch (which was REALLY needed on my 2017 after coming off a Ram Hemi).  But after awhile, I didn't really notice it so much, and drove some stock trucks that felt pretty much the same as mine.  Wondering if the engine reprograms to compensate for it?  I don't really know... someone probably has some hard dyno data on that.

 

Also, in California, couldn't sell it with the K&N on there, had to put the stock intake back on, which fortunately I kept.

there is a thread on here where someone has actual dyno results of before and after,  he actually lost hp by doing this.  If I find it I'll post it here...

If I recall, wasn't that someone who did the intake without the exhaust?  I think that may have been why.

yes,  just intake,  if I remember right he was going to do the exhaust and try again, but I haven't been able to find it yet

I'm just waiting on Airaid to come out with their MIT for these trucks. I could never see spending so much on a CAI.

I have read negative gains o the L84 but good gains on the L82. I think that’s why the GM CA I comes with a tune. I have had a KN CAI on about everything I have owned. Might go GM on this one.

      I purchased and installed the Cold Air Intake for my 2019 GMC AT4 w/6.2L. Had to have dealership "Reflash" computer. They weren't supposed to charge, but they did. Haven't gotten anyone to call me back to explain. (Milford, CT  Chevrolet/GMC).
      I drive hard and fast. I'm only getting 12-14mpg! 15.5 best hwy during 3k mile trek from WA state to CT. I know have 4,700mi. Put air intake after I got to CT. I have stock 20" w/All Terrain Goodyears.
      I'm looking to put a cab high bed topper on this Dark Sky Metallic truck. Any ideas?
      I'd like to level it like I did my 2018 LTZ, but with it already has a 2" lift, and I'm not sure who can do it or supply me with the parts?
       Lastly, Why The Heck does Chevy/GMC Trucks not have a locking gas cap?!?! My 2015 C7 Vette does! With Proximity sensor push to open!!! $70k and no locking gas cap. I don't care about gas thieves. I care about gas tank vandals!!!!

      Thinking about doing an intake, exhaust, and tune to my new-to-me 2017 Sierra 1500 5.3L 8 speed. I miss the throttle response my 2013 6.2L had, it would lurch forward at the slightest tap of the gas. I also want to hear the engine, its so quiet!
       
      Cold air intakes seem to be disputed for having any performance gains, so are they really worth the $$$ in terms of better air flow? healthier engine? sound? any words of wisdom? Your $0.02 is always appreciated!
       
      I'm looking at the Magnaflow 15267 catback as it seems to sound pretty good for what I'm going for. I've read that there is a flap in the factory exhaust system that creates back pressure for AFM shift into V4 mode. I do like V4 mode and would not want to go away with it. How can a catback system integrate this feature? Also, what would be the rough performance improvements if any from a catback exhaust? Any other options that would sound similar and perform better/keep V4 mode for around the same price as Mgnaflow (~$800)?
       
      As for the tune, I know ZERO about tuning but do want to get rid of the rev limiter, speed limiter, get some performance gains without having to put midgrade or premium fuel in. How does the tuning process work? about how much do they cost? how can it be adjusted in the future? I assume anything like this would void some sort of warranty?
       
      Anyone do something similar and can attest to their experience with an intake, tune, exhaust?

      So back in a GM truck since the 2003 YukieXL got adopted in 2012. Got the SRado and 19 mpg around town after the generic (folks dog em out so I been going with knockoffs and with CAD today they’re pretty good. Truck doesn’t know.) makes the AFm not as noticeable and seriously 19 mpg in a truck combined . Never got better than 13.9 in my 5.7 Ram. Gonna go with cat back next...maybe tune. 
      Read every post before I attempted to get into bed through firewall to continue the Audio upgrade. My link has possibilities...AppleCare play upgrade or the Alpine head swap if budget ever can handle. Going through the big grommet is too much work guys so the little grommet under the drivers door hinge...15 minutes and pull the grommet back in the hole a snap. I got some pics so hope the show. Went with a BBox down firing dual 10 box. Only issue is where to mount the Amp and audiocontrol LC2i . Raising seat or on back wall seems intensive unless using expensive Alpine bass kit but little room unless front of box. Better weather would motivate me to pull back seat out and build a suspension mount like Alpine does. Trying to use set up from previous sled...save some dough. It’s  DablueSmooth now but forgot my new password so musical names for next 30 days. Pictures are too big or failing to load from the iPad ...I’ll post from phone
