    Windstorm CAI is not a true CAI. You can google it and it is actually a hot air intake. The only true cold air intake is the aFe cai. I am currently in the process of buying it.

    aFe is claiming 40hp and 60tq gain from a CAI... :crazy: Don't waste your money. When driving, the stock intake maintains ambient air temperature without heating it.

    I'm going to give it another try, and throw the CAI back on. I'm hoping I can tolerate the weird pop it makes. I just can't get over spending that much money on something, and not have it on.

    I did the mod to vent the bypasses to atmosphere. The weird popping is gone, now you whoosh when they open. It’s not as noticeable or annoying with the windows up. With the window down you do hear them open when you let off the throttle and while driving at part throttle. Not perfect, but def better!!

    I don't think I would be able to deal with an atmospheric dump on an automatic lol

    Guess I’ll give this a try also. I see mine sitting on a shelf in the garage and it makes my stomach knot
