I just installed an IEATSRT8 today and the MagnaFlow exhaust is going on next weekend....then sending out for the PCM4LESS tune. It should really help!

intake air & where it comes from

for 3 years i've watched and listened about intakes and have customized my own for the ss.the biggest issue isnt the intake(heat soak) but where you get the air from. if the air comes from the engine compartment its gonna get warm. it needs to be extracted from the outside. i have mine coming directly from vent under headlights with a silicone tube direct into a sealed intake box.never any problems in 3 years through rain & snow.

Not sure if you guys missed it but we have the only OEM designed intake on the market. This is by far IMHO the best unit on the market ALL premium parts check it out

Hey guys
ive noticed that most of you on this thread have a V8 SS.
Would putting a cai and tune on an 02 LTZ I6 be worth it?

i dont see whats appealing about the vector. iv heard nuthing about vector accept that it was not as good as the IEATSRT8. even the new and improved gen 2 still isnt up to par. the airaid has a filter the size of texas a layer to prevent from over oiling and it uses an original filter. it doesn bum a k&n filter like most other brands. id go airaid or IEATSRT8 havent made a rocksolid choice yet. then vector and k&n as a different group that i wouldnt consider. then volant hahahaha not on my car.
TB lewis as far as im concerned a air intake with a tune works on any vehicle ofcourse better for some than others curse the diesel owners for that. but my friend has an 05 2wd tahoe with just a k&n intake and a tune and he is just as fast as my SS until about 70. but thats a rare case. my other friend put an airiad tube not the full intake just the JR. tube kit on his dodge and he said he could notice power and his milege went from 11 to 15/16 then with a tune he said it was a different truck.

You arent serious right? The IEAT EXACTLY the same as our Gen 1 minus the ceramic coating and a coupler change. Our intake was the first on the market if that gives you any insight

If you think a standard stainless ceramic coated crossover tube and an OEM designed OEM tooled neckdown removal is "not up to par" with an aluminum tube and a roof vent from home depot used to seal the airbox I'd say, well I think there is a myriad of things to say LOL
